ESSENTIAL OMEGA-3 AND OMEGA-6 FATTY ACIDS IN-DEPTH

Essential fatty acids (EFA) are vital to sustain your life, but we need to obtain them from outside because human body is unable to manufacture them on its own in sufficient quantities. They were originally designated as Vitamin F when they were discovered as essential nutrients in 1923. These fatty acids play a fundamental role in several physiological functions. EFAs support the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. The human body needs EFAs to manufacture and repair cell membranes, to the produce prostaglandins, which regulate body functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility, and play a role in immune function by regulating inflammation and encouraging the body to fight infection. Essential Fatty Acids are also needed for proper growth in children, particularly for neural development and maturation of sensory systems, with male children having higher needs than females. Symptoms of essential fatty acids deficiency include cancer, insulin resistance, depression, poor immunity, hypertension, decreased memory and mental health, asthma, diabetes, increased tendency of blood clotting, growth retardation, irregular heartbeat, increased triglycerides and so on.


ESSENTIAL OMEGA-3 AND OMEGA-6 FATTY ACIDS

Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids are especially important for making prostaglandins in your body. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances that regulate many activities in your body including inflammation, pain, and swelling (some cause swelling and others relieve it). They also play a role in controlling your blood pressure, your heart, your kidneys, your digestive system, and body temperature. They are important for allergic reactions, blood clotting and making other hormones.

Alpha linolenic acid (LNA) (omega-3) which can be converted into:

  • Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (omega-3)
  • Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (omega-3)

 

Linoleic acid (LA) (omega-6) which can be converted into:

  • Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) (omega-6) Dihomogamma linolenic acid (DGLA) (omega-6)
  • Arachidonic acid (AA) (omega-6)

 

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION IMPROVES CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation show great promise in primary and, particularly in secondary prevention of cardiovascular (CV) diseases. Epidemiologic data suggest that omega-3 fatty acids reduce cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown that dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids can significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular deaths, sudden cardiac, all-cause mortality, and nonfatal cardiovascular events.

 

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION CAN HELP REGULATE BLOOD PRESSURE

According to a research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, people who ate diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids had lower blood pressure, on average, than people who ate diets with less of these fatty acids. Omega-3 supplements are another tool that has shown effective when taken by those with high blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acids are useful for thinning the blood and improving circulation and it is now known that those whose diets are high in fish oils have a lower risk for high blood pressure. According to a recent paper published by the University of Connecticut Health Center, omega 3 fish oil supplements benefits individuals who have hypertension or high blood pressure. The results may not be as drastic as with some other supplements but there can definitely be some noticeable differences.

 

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION CAN IMPROVE CHOLESTEROL LEVELS

Omega-3 fatty acids can help aid in healthy levels of LDL and HDL cholesterol. Eskimos, who consume high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, tend to have increased HDL cholesterol and decreased triglycerides. Studies have shown that getting enough DHA and EPA through diet or fish oil supplements protects against cardiovascular disease by lowering the levels of triglycerides in the blood, while raising levels of HDL (\"good\") cholesterol, and may also act as an anticoagulant to prevent blood from clotting. Essential fatty acids contain natural anti-inflammatory compounds that can relive the symptoms of arthritis and autoimmune diseases.

 

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION INCREASES INSULIN SENSITIVITY

Omega-3 supplementation can increase insulin sensitivity, and reduce inflammatory markers. Following a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids may help fight insulin resistance, according to a 2008 study. After eating 720 grams of fatty fish weekly and 15 ml of sardine oil daily, study members showed an improvement in insulin sensitivity. Researchers at the University of California, found that the insulin-sensitizing ability of EPA and DHA was the same or greater than that found for the drug rosiglitazone in a separate group of normal obese mice.

 

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION MAY DECREASE TUMOR FORMATION

Several studies report anti-cancer effects of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation (particularly breast, colon and prostate cancer) .Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids can block tumor formation in animals, and test tube studies have documented that omega-3 fatty acids can inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells. In a recent study published in the Journal Cancer Epidemiology, women who took fish oil supplements were found to have a 32% lower risk of breast cancer.

 

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTIONS

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids improve brain functions, memory, protect against fetal brain injury and promotes fetal and infant brain health. The brain is actually 60 percent fat and DHA (an Omega-3 essential fatty acid) is the most abundant fat in the brain. It\'s also the most abundant fat in breast milk, since babies need it to nourish their growing brains and eye development. Studies done at Purdue University showed that children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder had lower levels of these essential fatty acids.

 

SUPPORT THE HEALTH OF HAIR, SKIN AND THE INTEGRITY OF INTESTINAL TRACT

Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation supports the body systems involved in maintaining healthy skin and hair integrity and improves health of your gastrointestinal tract. Diet low in essential fatty acids could result in skin problems, such as dandruff, eczema, splitting nails and dull brittle hair. Fatty acids influence the structure of the cells lining the intestinal tract, as well as the \"villi\" through which absorption of nutrients takes place. They increase the thickness and surface area of the digestive-absorptive cells that line the inside of our intestine. This results in more effective digestion, better absorption of nutrients, less absorption of allergens, and better health.

 

REDUCES JOINT PAIN AND INFLAMMATION

Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation is an affordable tool for reducing joint and tendon pain as well as reducing inflammation and preventing wear and tear. Clinical studies showed that omega-3 fatty acids can help to ease morning stiffness and tenderness in the joints, reduce arthritic symptoms; including pain, the number of tender joints and stiffness in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Also, studies conducted that taking omega-3 supplements led to a decreased use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroids. In addition combining omega-3 fatty acids with glucosamine achieves better improvements in joint health than glucosamine alone.
