Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats found naturally in foods like fish, vegetable oils, nuts, flax seeds, flaxseed oil, and leafy vegetables. They play a pivotal role in the cell membranes of the body for affecting the functions of cell receptors. Their deficiency can lead to dry and irritated skin, inflammation, dry eyes, depression, and arthritis. As a result, there is a rise in the need for over the counter (OTC) omega-3 supplements to help boost the omega-3 levels in the body. These supplements generally contain different forms of omega-3s, including natural triglycerides, free fatty acids, ethyl esters, re-esterified triglycerides, and phospholipids.

Omega 3 Supplements Market Trends:
A significant rise in the number of individuals suffering from omega-3 deficiency represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Moreover, omega-3 fatty acids play an essential role in improving cardiovascular health and enhancing communication between brain cells. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of heart diseases and the growing consumer inclination towards cognitive health are contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, the rising awareness about the benefits of including omega-3 fatty acids in the diet for reducing the risk of blood clots, keeping the lining of the arteries smooth and free from damage, and lowering triglyceride levels is also driving the market. Furthermore, some of these supplements made from fish oil are considered nonvitamin and nonmineral natural products, which makes them a popular choice among children and adults. Besides this, manufacturers are offering sustainably sourced plant-based variants to cater to the dietary requirements of omega-3 among the vegan population. This, along with the emerging trend of veganism, is anticipated to propel market growth.
