Pills Pouring out of BottleEssential fatty acids include the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that the body cannot manufacture and must be taken in daily from dietary sources. Omega -3 essential fatty acids include eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA) and are found in deep-water fish, fish oil, and certain vegetable oils, among them flaxseed and walnut oil. Omega-6 EFAs include linoleic and gamma-linolenic acids, and are found primarily in raw nuts, seeds, and legumes, in addition to unsaturated vegetable oils, such as borage oil, grape seed oil and primrose oil. In order to supply essential fatty acids, these oils must be consumed in pure liquid or supplement form and must not be subjected to heat, either processing or cooking.

Our diets usually contain a large amount of omega-6 fatty acids with very little omega-3 fatty acids. It is impractical for most people to eat fish on a daily basis, so obtaining a high-quality fish oil supplement becomes essential for optimal health.
