The body cannot produce omega-3s on its own, which is why it is essential to find foods to supplement the fatty acid into a diet. There are three kinds of omega-3s, all of which are great for your diet: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Both DHA and EPA are omega-3s found in seafood like salmon, herring, and tuna or within fish oils, whereas ALA omega-3 can be found in some plants, nuts, and seeds. The body can convert some ALA omega-3 to DHA and EPA to low efficiency. However, patients who do not like or eat much seafood are recommended to attempt using fish oil supplements to fulfill the omega-3 requirements.
