Omega-3 Fatty Acid Micro Pellets MUPS
Nâˆ’3 fatty acids (popularly referred to as Ï‰âˆ’3 fatty acids or omega-3 fatty acids) are essential unsaturated fatty acids with a double bond (C=C) starting after the third carbon atom from the end of the carbon chain.
The carbon chain has two ends -- the acid (COOH) end and the methyl (CH3) end. The location of the first double bond is counted from the methyl end, which is also known as the omega (Ï‰) end or the n end.
Nutritionally important nâˆ’3 fatty acids include Î±-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), anddocosahexaenoic acid (DHA), all of which are polyunsaturated.
Common sources of nâ€“3 fatty acids include fish oils and some plant oils such as flaxseed oil and algal oil.
Mammals cannot synthesize nâˆ’3 fatty acids, but have a limited ability to form the "long-chain" nâˆ’3 fatty acids EPA (20-carbon atoms) and DHA (22-carbon atoms) from the "short-chain" eighteen-carbon nâˆ’3 fatty acid ALA.
