Omega 3 Fatty Acids
OMEGA−3 FATTY ACIDS—also called ω−3 FATTY ACIDS or N−3 FATTY ACIDS —are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with a double bond (C=C) at the third carbon atom from the end of the carbon chain. The fatty acids have two ends, the carboxylic acid (-COOH) end, which is considered the beginning of the chain, thus "alpha", and the methyl (-CH3) end, which is considered the "tail" of the chain, thus "omega"; the double bond is at omega minus 3 (not dash 3). One way in which a fatty acid is named is determined by the location of the first double bond, counted from the methyl end , that is, the omega (ω-) or the n- end. However, the standard (IUPAC) chemical nomenclature system starts from the carboxyl end. The three types of omega−3 fatty acids involved in human physiology are α-linolenic acid (ALA) (found in plant oils), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) , and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (both commonly found in marine oils)
