OMEGA-3 EPA AND DHA IN THE SPORTS NUTRITION MARKET

VIEWS: 11 PAGES: 3

The omega-3s are a family of essential fatty acids that includes EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). Oily fish (such as sardines, anchovies, mackerel and salmon) are the primary natural sources of omega-3 EPA/DHA, which contribute to the many health benefits associated with omega-3s. ALA - found in flax, as well as hemp, chia and other plants - is converted to omega-3 EPA/DHA by your body.
