How is the omega 3 in flax oil different than fish oil?
ALA found in flax oil is the parent fatty acid in the omega-3 family. A portion of ALA may be converted to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which are longer chain omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil. On its own, ALA appears to have unique physiologic benefits apart from its conversion to EPA and DHA. ALA is especially useful to support heart health and the immune system. For vegetarians and individuals who prefer not to take fish oil, AIMegaT offers a healthy alternative.
