Omega 3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats, long story short, these fats cannot be made by the human body. As the human body cannot make these fats they are referred to as ‘essential’ fats which mean they have to be obtained from your diet.
Omega 3 fats are known for many functions including:
Improvement in mental health (i.e. reduce symptoms of depression or disorders related to mental health e.g. bipolar disorder)
Improve heart health by increasing the good cholesterol which reduces blood pressure and arterial plaque (i.e. reduce the chance of having a heart attack)
Reduction in weight and waist size
Decrease the amount of fat in the liver
Aid in brain development for infants
Reduction in inflammation, i.e. reduce the risk of the body catching a chronic disease
Improving memory and slowing down the decline in brain function in old age i.e preventing dementia
Increase in bone mineral density i.e have healthier bones
Reduce symptoms of asthma
Overall Omega 3 is crucial for the heart, brain and your metabolism.
Omega 6 are polyunsaturated fatty acids, but also ‘essential’, so they are also needed to be obtained from the diet. These are primarily used for energy but also known to treat chronic diseases and even arthritis.
Omega 9 is monosaturated, and most commonly come across as Oleic acid.
Omega 9 fatty acids aren’t firmly ‘essential’ therefore they can be produced by the body and known to be the most plentiful fats in most cells in the human body. Omega 9 is known for a number of beneficial health effects including reducing inflammation, regulation of blood glucose levels and improved insulin sensitivity.
