What is fish oil and Omega-3 fatty acids?

We get omega-3 fatty acids – also known as fish oil – straight from the tissues of fish, especially the oily and fatty kind, like salmon. Fish oils contain two types of omega-3s, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Both are great for your body and health – but for slightly different reasons.

It's not just fish either. You can get omega-3s from a few other foods too, like spinach and walnuts. But most people find it nearly impossible to consume enough of this crucial nutrient within their daily diet. Even if you did eat enough seafood, that can carry problems of its own – like the risk of mercury poisoning.

Vitamin C: what is vitamin C and what does it do?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient found in some foods.

In the body, it acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals.
Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals in the environment from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun.

The body also needs vitamin C to make collagen, a protein required to help wounds heal. In addition, vitamin C improves the absorption of iron from plant-based foods and helps the immune system work properly to protect the body from disease.
