Official Explanation:

Concepts tested: Parallelism

The list includes the ways by which omega-3 fatty acids promote health. The items on this list must be parallel.
A - supporting… enriching… in providing à not parallel. The ‘in’ in item 3 is unnecessary.
B - supporting… enriching… provision of à not parallel. Items 1 and 2 are verbs whereas item 3 is a noun.
C – This option is parallel and hence is right.
D - ‘by means of’ is unnecessarily wordy. Within the list, supporting… enriching… in the provision of à not parallel. Items 1 and 2 are verbs whereas item 3 is a noun.
E - supporting… by enriching… providing à not parallel. The ‘by’ in item 2 is unnecessary. Thus, the correct answer is option C.

Must be (C) for correct Parallelism usage -

High concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids, precursors of certain eicosanoids that are known to reduce inflammation in the body, can promote health by
supporting the immune system,
enriching the blood and
providing antioxidant nutrients for preservation and free radical protection.
