These are essential fatty acids, which may have many preventative health benefits, including cardiovascular, maintaining the structure of cell, nervous system, may lower bad cholesterol, increase good cholesterol, improve immune system. Omega 3 6 9 fatty acids are usually monounsaturated fat. Omega 3 6 9 include EPA (eicosapentaenoic Acid ) , DHA ( docosa hexaenoic Acid) and GLA These fatty acid are made from ALA ( Alpha Linoleic Acid).
Fats are an essential component to a healthy diet. Fats contribute to the flavor and texture of many foods, including oils, nuts, seeds, avocados, salmon and many more of what some consider the healthiest foods on the planet. Yet on a much deeper and molecular level, fats are critical to several essential functions in our bodies. Eeating some types of fat can actually help reduce your cholesterol and risk for cardiovascular disease.
Fats in our food are made up of fatty acid chains, which consist of carbon and hydrogen atoms linked together. There are two major types of fatty acids that we eat: saturated and unsaturated.
Omega-3's are known for their benefit to heart health and come in both plant and animal forms. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is a plant form of omega-3. It's found in flaxseed, chia seed, walnuts, and canola and soybean oils. ALA is important because it can only be obtained in the diet. Our bodies can't make ALA, which makes it an essential fatty acid.
Omega-3's also include eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are the marine forms of omega-3s, commonly found in cold-water fatty fish like salmon, herring, sardines, and mackerel. These fatty acids can be made from ALA in the body, but the conversion rate isn't good. Because of this and the fact that EPA and DHA are strongly correlated with
Omega-6 fatty acids include arachidonic and linoleic acid. Sources of linoleic acid include vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds; arachidonic acid is found in meat and eggs. Along with the omega-3 ALA, linoleic acid is the other essential fatty acid.
Omega-3s and omega-6s, omega-9 fatty acids are usually monounsaturated and can be made in the body, making them nonessential fatty acids. The term "nonessential"
