Fish oils contain the essential fatty acids called Omega-3’s. They provide us with many health benefits, and just like the word essential implies, the body has to have them in order to sustain life. Make certain that the Fish oils that you use are the highest quality or you miss out on all the benefits. There are also vegetarian sources of Omega-3 fatty acid supplements available, such as Red Algae. Most people in our society have an abundance of Omega-6 Fatty Acids in their diet. We do need Omega-6's at a 2:1 ratio to Omega-3’s, but we are completely out-of-whack in terms of proportion. Most Americans consume Omega-6’s at a ratio of 6:1.
