What are Omega 3 Fatty Acids?

There are three primary types of Omega 3 fatty acids; ALA, EPA, and DHA.
ALA Omega 3 fatty acids are found in plants like flax and chia.
EPA and DHA Omega 3s are found in fish, shellfish, and marine algae.
While our bodies can convert the plant based ALA Omega 3s into EPA and DHA, the conversion rate in our bodies is very low. So it is important to get EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids from your diet, and Wild Planet seafood is an excellent source of these important EPA/DHA Omegas. Please see our individual product pages to find the combined totals of these Omega 3s in each of our products. Alternatively, you may view our comparative chart for all products.
