Omega-3 essential fatty acids, or EFAs, are a type of “good fat.” They’ve been studied extensively for decades for their anti-inflammatory effects and support for heart health. A growing body of evidence suggests that Omega-3s also provide important benefits for mental and nervous, immune, and eye health.
Omega-3s are considered “essential” because our bodies need them for health but are unable to produce them. Instead, they must be obtained through either food or supplements. They’re commonly called fish oil because primary sources include cold water fish such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna. Other sources include krill, flaxseed, hemp, dark green vegetables, and nuts. The most common omega-3s are DHA, EPA, and ALA.
Colloidal minerals derived from plant matter are the smallest and most bioavailable mineral form. Plant-derived colloidal minerals can include naturally-occurring heavy metals such as copper, selenium, and zinc. Whereas higher concentrations are harmful, trace amounts these elements (e.g., copper, selenium, zinc) are essential to human health.
