More about Omega oils and essential fatty acids...
Omega 3, 6 and 9 oils are the so-called “good fats", required by the body and its many systems to carry out a number of vital functions, including:
cognitive functions (memory, mental ability, concentration and mood)
heart function and circulation
supporting health cholesterol levels
supporting the immune system
supporting lower levels of inflammation in the body
supporting healthy hair, skin and nails
supporting healthy hormone levels.
What are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)?
These are a group of unsaturated fatty acids that are essential for growth and body function. EFA activity requires three polyunsaturated fatty acids (linolenic, linoleic and arachidonic). The most essential are linoleic and arachidonic, which are closely involved in metabolism, transport of fats and maintenance of cell membranes. While linolenic and arachidonic acids can be synthesised by the body, linoleic cannot.
There are two types of essential fatty acids - Omega 6 fatty acids and Omega 3 fatty acids. Most people get adequate amounts of Omega 6 fatty acids through their diet, but not enough Omega 3. Over the past 50 years, the consumption of Omega 3 fatty acids has significantly declined in the West.
Omega 3 oils are generally found in fatty fish, deep green vegetables and some grains and seeds. They contain alpha-linolenic acid, which is metabolised into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the body.
