ALA is an essential fatty acid for humans meaning that we need to get it from our diet since we cannot make it in our bodies. If you can picture it, from the smallest level of a cell in our body, omega-3s are embedded in the cell membranes, outside and inside the cell, being particularly rich in the cells of our brain, eyes, and heart.1 These fats play a structural role in our membranes and are used to provide important signal substances that balance and regulate our immune system.
