Alpha Linolenic Acid fatty acid

α-Linolenic acid (ALA) is an n−3 fatty acid. It is one of two essential fatty acids (the other being linoleic acid), so called because they are necessary for health and cannot be produced within the human body. They must be acquired through diet. ALA is an omega-3 fatty acid found in seeds (chia, flaxseed, hemp, see also table below), nuts (notably walnut), and many common vegetable oils.

NB! Don't mix with Alpha Lipoic Acid!
