Omega-3 is very important for your body. It keeps your heart healthy and plays a key role in brain and eye function. Usually, it comes from food or supplements in one of three forms: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) from foods like flaxseeds, walnuts, and tofu; eicospentaenoic acid (EPA) from salmon and trout and certain types of algae; and docosahexaenoic acid from fatty fish and certain algae.
