Moderate evidence has emerged about the health benefits of consuming seafood. Omega-3 fatty acids are a group of polyunsaturated fatty acids that are important for several functions in the body. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are found in seafood, such as fatty fish (e.g., salmon, tuna, and trout) and shellfish (e.g., crab, mussels, and oysters). A different kind of omega-3, called ALA, is found in other foods, including vegetable oils (e.g., canola and soy). Omega-3s are also available as dietary supplements; fish oil supplements contain EPA and DHA, and flaxseed oil supplements contain ALA.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to be beneficial for the heart. Positive effects include:
Anti-inflammatory and anti-blood clotting actions.
Lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Reducing blood pressure.
These fatty acids may also reduce the risks and symptoms of other disorders, including diabetes, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, cancers, and mental decline.
