Get the inside scoop on Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 fatty acids are critical nutrients for the human body. They offer some of the least controversial benefits of all the items available in the supplement section of the grocery store. In other words, there is very little debate on whether you will benefit from taking omega 3s... you will.

The eductional gaps around omega 3s fit into questions like what are they, how do they work, how much is too much, and what are the options. I've assembled some articles here that address these issues.
