Who Needs Omega-3s? Do you? Your baby? Your teen? Your parents?

You’ve likely heard about the many health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. Are you getting enough of them in your diet?

 

According to experts, probably not. And most people you know — your spouse, your toddler, and your mom – probably aren’t either.

 

“Pretty much everybody’s diet is deficient in omega-3s,” says David C. Leopold, MD, director of integrative medical education at the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine in San Diego. “I think that’s why adding them back in seems to have so many health benefits. We’re just balancing out what’s normally” there.

 

Omega-3s are rapidly becoming an important tool in mainstream medicine. They seem to have health benefits for every age group – from before birth to old age. There’s conclusive evidence that they protect against heart disease and lower triglycerides. There’s also compelling research showing that they might help with dozens of other conditions too.

 

To help you better understand the benefits – and some of the risks – of omega-3s, here’s a primer on using omega-3 fatty acids. WebMD has also surveyed the evidence of how omega-3s help four groups of people – infants, children and teens, young adults, and middle-aged to older adults.
