  • From merely being cod liver oil taken for vitamins A and D, fish oils have moved into the center stage of fatty acids in nutrition. The analytical work starting in 1950 provided the means to recognize the long-chain and truly essential n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids vital for retinal, neurological and cellular membrane functions in our bodies. The AEskimo@ studies of twenty years ago have also now been followed scientifically for two decades, into our recognizing fish and shellfish as highly desirable food sources of these n-3 fatty acids for cardiovascular benefits.
