Omega 6 fatty acids and Omega 3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids needed in your daily diet in a balanced proportion for optimum Adequate Intake (AI) nutritional value. Despite the general recommendation for Americans to consume Omega 3 fatty acids, actual intakes remain low. The recommended US daily AI intake of Omega 3 fatty acids is 1.6 grams per day, of which 1.4 grams is ALA and 0.1-0.2 gram is EPA and DHA
Although the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Sciences has established Dietary Adequate Intakes References (AI) for a-linolenic acid, they do not provide AI for longer chain n-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
The 10M highlights the need for additional research to look at the roles of n-3 fatty acids in numerous diseases including cancer, inflammatory and metabolic disorders and degenerative diseases of the central nervous system.
