As you've probably heard by now, there are good fats and there are bad fats. Unsaturated and trans fats are generally regarded as unhealthy, while polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats can be part of healthy lifestyle when consumed in moderation. Omega fatty acids are in the polysaturated category. The different types of omega fatty acids are named according to the placement of the first carbon-carbon double bond in their molecular structures. For instance, omega-3 fatty acids have their first carbon-carbon double bond at the third carbon atom, omega-6 have their at the sixth carbon atom, and omega-9 at the ninth.
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids: They are necessary for human health but the body can't make them---you have to get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut, other seafood including algae and krill, some plants, and nuts oils. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 fatty acids plays a crucial role in brain function, as well as normnal growth and development. omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function. In fact, infants who do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids from their mothers during pregnancy are at risk for developing vision and nerve problems. Symptoms of omega-3 fatty acid deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.
Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids are present in meat, but you can also obtain them through vegetable oils such as corn and sunflower oil, and also in eggs and poultry. Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids have opposite effects on the lvels of inflammation in your body; thus Omega 3 can reduce inflammation, while omega 6 can increase it. It's important that these fatty acids remain in a proper balance to regulate inflammation in your body.
Unlike the other two omega fatty acids, omega 9 is a monounsaturated fat, and its is non-essential, meaning your body can manufacture it on its own
- Improve artery health by helping to reduce plaque buildup and blood clots in arteries that lead to the brain.
- Improve cholesterol by lowering triglycerides and elevating HDL (good cholesterol) levels. These benefits come primarily from DHA and EPA.
- Low GI Ultra Carb Blend
- Improve joint health by reducing joint tenderness and stiffness associated with arthritis and osteoarthritis.
- Improve bone health by positively impacting the body's calcium levels, reducing the incidence of bone loss.
- Improve mental health by helping to insulate nerve cells in the brain, allowing these nerve cells to better communicate with one another. People who are deficient in omega-3’s may suffer from depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and ADHD.
- Improve skin health by helping to alleviate symptoms related to skin disorders like acne and psoriasis.
- Improve bowel health by reducing inflammation of the bowels, helping alleviate symptoms of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
- Improve lung health by reducing inflammation in diseases like asthma.
