Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are considered as essential fatty acids for humans. These include alpha-linolenic acid (ALA; 18:3 ω-3), stearidonic acid (SDA; 18:4 ω-3), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 20:5 ω-3), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA; 22:5 ω-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6 ω-3). In the last few decades plenty of epidemiological studies have been conducted on a myriad health benefits of omega-3 PUFAs.
In this review, we have summarized

  • structural features,
  • properties,
  • dietary sources,
  • metabolism,
  • bioavailability

and health effects, such as

  • cardiovascular disease,
  • diabetes,
  • cancer,
  • Alzheimer disease,
  • dementia,
  • depression,
  • visual and neurological development,
  • maternal and child health,

of omega-3 PUFAs.
Even though many health benefits of omega-3 PUFAs have been reported in the literature, there are also some controversies about their efficacy and certain benefits to human health.
