Omega-3 fatty acids play numerous crucial roles in the human body. Especially vital for cardiovascular health, their key functions include reducing triglyceride levels, lowering blood pressure, and reducing the risk of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats).

Also essential for brain development and function, omega-3 fatty acids play vital roles in maintaining cognitive function, memory, and overall brain health. Some studies further suggest they may have a positive impact on mood disorders such as depression.

Omega-3 fatty acids also have anti-inflammatory effects. These can be particularly helpful for controlling conditions such as asthma, as well as for reducing the inflammation that occurs in chronic kidney disease.

Research additionally shows omega-3 fatty acids may alleviate joint pain and stiffness in individuals suffering from diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
