Short-chain fatty acids do not have the same health benefits as omega-3 long-chain fatty acids, especially EPA and the DHA.

Our body cannot produce omega-3 on its own. Although EPA and DHA can be obtained in lower amounts from red meat, egg and few other foods, fish and shellfish are the best source. We need EPA and DHA to grow and function properly, and if the diet does not supply sufficient quantity, growth can be impaired and vulnerability to diseases can increase. For this reason, omega-3 supplements intake in the diet is advisable. It is important to note that not all are equal. Look at the level of concentration and purity. The higher the concentration the more effective the supplement, such as Omegafort.
