Today the latest scientific research not only continues to validate the important roles of EPA and DHA in human health, but it has also shown that there is a whole family of omega-3 fatty acids, a total of eight in all, which contribute to optimal human nutrition. This critically important chain of dietary omega-3 fatty acids starts with ALA (alpha linolenic acid) and ends with DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), taking six important steps along the way. Each is now known to have its own unique biochemistry and supporting "synergistic" role in human omega-3 nutrition. The United States Department of Agriculture suggests that all adults eat 2-3 servings of fish each week for optimal health. Unfortunately, the problem for many adults is that they eat very little fish on a consistent basis and rarely meet this important nutritional need. Pregnant women, who have the highest dietary needs for omega-3 fatty acids, ironically are instructed to limit their fish intake to one serving per week, due to contamination risk.
