Why are Omega 3s so important?

Every single cell in the body needs Omega 3s to thrive. Cells are surrounded by a phospholipid bylayer of fat which protects the contents and integrity of the cell.  This is especially important, because the health of our cells will directly dictate the overall health of our body. Omega 3s are an integral part of cell membranes, throughout the entire body and affect the cell receptors in these membranes.
