Fatty acids typically refer to omega fatty acids, found commonly in fish, that are very important for your health. Eating whole foods that are rich in omega-3s, like fatty fish is the best way to get enough. If you don’t eat a lot of fatty fish, you may want to consider taking a supplement.
Fish oil comes in both natural and processed forms. Fish. In whole fish, omega-3 fatty acids occur naturally free fatty acids, phospholipids, and triglycerides. In conventional fish oils, omega-3 fatty acids are mostly present as triglycerides. When fish oils are refined, food chemists often convert the triglycerides into ethyl esters, allowing them to adjust the concentration of DHA and EPA in the oil. The ethyl esters in processed fish oils can be converted back into triglycerides, which are then termed “reformed” triglycerides.
Of these different types, the last one, ethyl esters, is the least healthy. In choosing fatty acid supplements look for fish oil supplements preferably when possible. Krill oil is extracted from Antarctic krill, a small shrimp-like animal. Krill oil contains omega-3s in both triglyceride and phospholipid form. In looking for a good fatty acid supplement, look for EPA and DHA content. Take a fatty acid supplement with food as the body absorbs it better with food containing fat.
