Fish oil contains two types of omega-3 fatty acid molecules: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA is a fatty acid essential for the whole body, whereas the use of DHA is concentrated in the eyes and the brain for visual and neurological benefits. The human brain consists of about 60% fat, half of which is in the form of the essential fatty acid DHA. DHA is also found in the retina of the eyeball. One of the best-publicized benefits of omega-3 is its potential for reducing inflammation and keeping the heart healthy, and there has even significant research to support it.
