DUBLIN, July 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Omega-3 Marine And Plant Products: Global Markets, Competitors And Opportunities- 2013-2018 Analysis And Forecasts" report to their offering.


Omega-3 fatty acids are fats commonly found in marine and plant oils. They are considered essential, meaning they cannot be synthesized by the human body, and are vital for normal metabolism. Omega-3 has benefits in terms of cardiovascular disease, inflammation, developmental disorders, psychiatric disorders and cognitive aging. The health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids, primarily EPA and DHA, were discovered in the 1970s by researchers studying the Greenland Inuit Tribe, who consumed large amounts of fat from fish, but displayed virtually no cardiovascular disease.

The most widely available marine sources of EPA and DHA are cold water, oily fish, krill and algae. Plant sources of Omega-3 include flaxseed and chia seed.

Although Omega-3 fatty acids have been known as essential to normal growth and health since the 1930s, awareness of their health benefits has dramatically increased since the 1990s. Today, Omega-3 products are a multi-billion dollar industry that is growing more than 15% annually.

Additionally, profiles of 183 public and private companies involved in the Omega-3 industry as producers, distributors and retailers are given. The report also includes 31 tables and 9 figures.
