A class of essential fatty acids the body needs for a variety of functions, from muscle activity to cell growth. Omega-3 fatty acids are a class of essential fatty acids—fats that your body can’t make and must get from food. They are an integral part of the cell membrane, protecting other parts of the cell against free radicals. Studies have shown that Omega-3 may help improve cardiovascular health, reduce cholesterol, lower blood pressure, support healthy bones and joints, and reduce inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in foods such as salmon, nuts, and flaxseeds. Along with health benefits, omega-3’s help protects against sun damage and how your skin responds to UV rays.
