Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids, found in foods such as fish, vegetable oil, flaxseeds and others that are important for the functions of the body. These acids are essential for a number of body functions which include digestion, muscle activity, fertility, cell division, blood clothing and brain developments & functions, among others. Fatty acids such as EPA and DHA have been proved to be essential for the fatal development, Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular functions. However, our body does not produce some of these fatty acids; hence it is recommended to take adequate supplements of omega-3 fatty acids. According to the U.S. Food And Drug Administration, a person can consume up to 3g per day, with the combination of EPA and DHA, which also includes 2g per day from dietary supplements. Higher doses can possibly cause bleeding problems and effect immune function. Various research organizations are investigating the possible effects of omega-3 fatty acids on numerous conditions including Autism spectrum disorders, Autoimmune diseases, HIV infections, epilepsy and others.

Increasing lifestyle diseases including obesity among teenagers and rising demand for supplementary & functional foods due to growing health consciousness among consumers are fuelling the growth of the global omega-3 market. Moreover, growing applications in animal foods and infants formulas also supports the growth of the market. However, lack of awareness in underdeveloped nations and lack of intake standards is expected to restrain the growth of the market. Nevertheless, growing applications and increasing investments on R&D is anticipated to provide growth opportunities in coming years.
