Supplements of Omega and fatty Acids

The Omega-3 essential fatty acids. These are substances essential for the correct functioning of the organism and its maintenance in health, cannot be synthesized by human cells.

The only way to ensure the body to have the Omega-3 you need to do is to introduce them with the diet.

The Omega-3 fatty acids, which may be introduced with the feed are fact 3:

  • alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
  • eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
  • docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)

The acid alpha-linolenic acid is of plant origin, the EPA and the DHA (also known as n-3 HUFA) are found in fish, salt-water and in microalgae.

The n-3 HUFA EPA and DHA are forms of Omega-3 is better utilized by the human body and the most important from the clinical point of view. They can reduce inflammation as well as decrease the risk of developing chronic diseases, such as heart and circulatory disorders and arthritis. EPA and DHA are present in high concentrations in the brain, where they play a very important role to ensure the cognitive functions and adjust the behaviors. The

results of numerous studies indicate that the deficiency of n-3 HUFA in pregnancy increases the risk that the child may develop diseases of the nervous system and eyesight.

The balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6

In addition to the Omega-3 family of essential fatty acids are Omega-6.

A proper balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 is essential for the proper brain function, growth and body development, normal as well as to ensure a good state of health in general. Maintain a perfect balance in the diet between the two types of fatty acids is indispensable. In fact, Omega-3 and Omega-6 can have contrasting effects. While the first help to reduce the inflammatory phenomena, while the latter tend to promote them. Accordingly, an imbalance of the balance between these essential fatty acids can have harmful effects. Vice versa, an adequate intake of food can help to preserve one's own health, if not even improve it. A healthy diet should include a amount of Omega-6 from 1 to 3 times higher than the levels of Omega-3. However, the typical modern western diet contains, on average, 20 times more Omega-6 Omega-3. According to experts, this imbalance could be at the basis of the increasing incidence of disorders of the inflammatory type in the industrialised countries.
