Health Benefits of Omega-3
Omega-3 fatty acids are a category of polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) that help to maintain cell membranes of every cell in our body.  Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential, and we need them to function normally. The 3 main omega-3s are EPA, DHA and ALA. 

ALA,DHA and EPA are not made by our body,  so we need to get them from our diet. EPA and DHA are the primary omega-3s you need to support heart health and can be found in fatty fish like tuna, salmon, mackerel and omega-3 supplements.

These fatty acids provide amazing health benefits ranging from improving symptoms of existing disease (like lowering triglycerides) to preventing occurrence of age-related macular degeneration and Alzheimer’s disease. They also help to keep our skin clear and beautiful, keep allergies and inflammation under control, reduce joint pain, reduce symptoms of depression, to name a few.
Heart Benefits
Lower triglycerides (blood fat) reduce heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes in people with known cardiovascular disease. It also slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques (hardening of the arteries), and lowers blood pressure slightly.
Lowers levels of depression
research suggests that omega-3s may help protect against Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and have a positive effect on gradual memory loss linked to aging
Reduces Inflammation
Rheumatoid Arthritis:  A number of studies have found that fish oil supplements significantly reduced stiffness and joint pain.
