Omega-3 Fatty Acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat that your body is not able to produce in sufficient quantities on its own. Omega-3s are a critical component in the membrane covering every cell in the body and are also required to build healthy brain cells.
The three main omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA, in particular, plays a critical role in early fetal development during pregnancy and is critical in preventing certain birth defects, like NTDs. *
