One of them is omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are important types of fatty acids and are needed by the body for metabolism. Unfortunately these fatty acids are not produced by the body so we need to get them from food. In addition to omega 3 fatty acids, there are also omega 6 fatty acids and omega 9 fatty acids. These three fatty acids have different but equally important functions. Natural Source of Omega Fatty Acids Food sources of omega fatty acids vary, depending on the type.

There are also other types of food such as shrimp, shellfish and spinach that contain ome…
