Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids as they are essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. They are poly-unsaturated either on 3, 5 or 6 double bonds in a carbon chain of 18, 20 or 22 carbon atoms, respectively. All double bonds are in the cis-configuration, i.e. the two hydrogen atoms are on the same side of the double bond.
