Omega−3 fatty acids are important for normal metabolism.

The three types of omega-3 fatty acids involved in human physiology: α-linolenic acid (ALA), found in plant oils, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), commonly found in marine oils.

Marine algae and phytoplankton are primary sources of omega-3 fatty acids. ALA is founde in walnut,  flaxseed, Sacha Inchi, Echium, hemp and other plants.

The most widely available dietary source of EPA and DHA is oily fish, such as salmon. Krill oil is also a source of omega−3 fatty acids. The effect of krill oil, at a lower dose of EPA + DHA , was demonstrated to be similar to that of fish oil on blood lipid levels and markers of inflammation in healthy humans.

Flaxseed or linseed (Linum usitatissimum) are the most widely available botanical source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA.
