Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids found in certain fish tissues, and also in some vegetable foods such as flax seeds and green leaves.
Omega-3 fatty acids are classed as essential fatty acids. These fatty acids were originally designated as "Vitamin F", until it was realized that they must be classified with the fats. The essential omega-3 fatty acid that the body cannot manufacture is EPA, eicosapentaenoic acid.
