skin. It is not manufactured by the body and needs to be obtained from certain
fish and some other foods such
as flax seed oil and evening
primrose oil. The oils in Omega-3
EPA are not derived from fish

There are 4 types of fat
that the body obtains from food.
Polyunsaturated fats, cholesterol,
saturated fat, and monounsaturated

fats. There are some however
who are not keen on eating fish
at all, or they are not eating
