Omeaga-3

Were you looking for information about Omega-3? Omeaga-3 is a common misspelling of omega-3.
 
Omega-3 fatty acids are commonly found in dietary sources (mainly fish) and are claimed to provide several health benefits. As a type of essential fatty acid, they must be obtained through food or other dietary sources, such as supplements. Some of the claimed health benefits of omega-3 acids include lowering triglycerides, preventing blood clots, and reducing blood pressure. Although a normal dietary intake is considered safe and beneficial for most people, high-dose supplementation may cause problems. Therefore, before taking the supplements, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider.
