Omega-3 Fatty Acids (FAs) found in fish oils are widely recognized for a variety of health benefits.
The most important omega-3 fatty acids in nutrition are Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Since the human body cannot make omega-3 fatty acids on its own, these essential nutrients must be obtained from food or supplementation.
Several recognized scientific studies have demonstrated that Omega-3 FAs are important in numerous signaling pathways. Most notably, EPA is a precursor of certain prostaglandins and leukotrienes, molecules that are involved in mediating healthy inflammatory responses, and lung function. Therefore, these two classes of signaling molecules are critical for the maintenance of cardiovascular health, immune system function, and joint comfort.
Because Omega-3 FAs have been shown to be important in cell membrane biochemistry, they play a critical role in information processing in the brain. This particular function of DHA is especially significant with respect to its role in the maintenance of a positive mental state and balanced mood. Health Functions:

Omega-3 fatty acids may interact with aspirin or warfarin. In addition, Omega-3 fatty acids may interact with cholesterol lowering statin medications. Omega-3 fatty acids may affect the metabolism of certain medications, including cyclosporine, and may also affect the efficacy of topical corticosteroid treatment.
