Best Answer

Fish oil contains Omega 3, an essential fatty acid. Omega 3 is also found in lesser amounts in walnuts, flaxseed, wheat germ, and canola oil. The American diet is almost devoid of Omega 3. Seven critical functions of essential fats are:

  • Developing and maintaining gray matter in the brain
  • Achieving optimal growth
  • Maintaining the integrity of cell membranes
  • Keeping skin healthy
  • Proper visual development
  • Maintaining a healthy nervous system
  • Regulation of blood pressure, blood clotting and the body's inflammatory response
