Fish and some meats or eggs are rich sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA & DHA, the forms the body needs. Although you can find Omega-3 in Chia seeds, Flaxseeds and Hemp, it is not sufficient because it is in the form of ALA rather than EPA & DHA. The body has to convert this ALA into EPA & DHA to be used, but the conversion rate is under 5%. We love Chia seeds, Flaxseeds and Hemp, just not as sources of active Omega-3! Supplementing with an Algal Omega-3 EPA & DHA is the ideal solution.
