Omega 3 Definition
Omega 3 Definition from The Free Dictionary Omega 3 fatty acids (sometimes referred to as n-3 or w-3) is the name given to a family of polyunsaturated fatty acids of which DHA and EPA are members. Omega 3 is classified as an Essential fatty acid. Omega 3 refers to families that have more than one double bond and where the first double bond occurs between the 3rd and 4th from the omega end (i.e. methyl terminal carbon – CH3 end) of the molecule. The parent omega 3, Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), is a precursor for EPA and DHA. However from a human nutrition perspective EPA and DHA are considered more valuable as they are in a form that the body requires. Fish oil is an excellent source of EPA and DHA omega 3's.
