Can you get enough omega-3 from a vegan diet? | Rich Roll

Obtaining adequate omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for human health, can be challenging for people on a vegan diet. Omega-3 fatty acids include alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is found mainly in plant oils such as flaxseed, soybean, and canola. DHA and EPA are found in fish and other seafood. The human body can convert some ALA into EPA and then to DHA, but the efficiency of the process varies between individuals. In this clip, Rich Roll and Dr. Rhonda Patrick discuss how those on a vegan diet can determine whether they are getting enough omega-3 fatty acids.
