Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for the body, which, unfortunately, we cannot produce them; they must be obtained from food or dietary supplements instead. Extensive research indicates that Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent certain chronic diseases such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis.

Omega 3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be particularly important for cognitive and behavioral function.
