Omega-3 fatty acides are essential fatty acids, which means that our body cannot produce them and we mainly get them from our diet. The three best-known omega-3 fatty acids are alpha linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Sources of EPA and DHA are mainly fatty fish.
It is important that you include a sufficient amount of omega-3 fatty acids when you are pregnant. An adequate intake of DHA will, for example, stimulate the development of the brain and retina of your baby.
