Omega 3 - The Fats of Life

 

 

Omega-3
Not all fats are bad fats. The good ones include the fats in the polyunsaturated fatty acid family, and these are known as 'essential fats', or more properly 'essential fatty acids'. These "healthy" fats are vital to health and cannot be made by the human body - they must be obtained from diet. Omega-3 essential fats are found almost only in fish and seafood.

Recognition of the importance of the omega-3s was a major nutritional break-through that has since generated a great number of international scientific research programmes. Results have clearly shown that not only do they have an essential role in brain development in the unborn and newborn and are vital to the healthy maintenance and function of the body - they can also help protect long-term good health and prevent, or even treat, a number of complaints and diseases.

ESSENTIAL
  • Prevention of essential fatty acid deficiency in infancy
  • Optimal retinal (eye) and brain development
PROTECTIVE
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain cancers (breast, colon, prostate)
THERAPEUTIC
  • Mildly raised blood pressure
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune diseases (lupus, certain kidney disorders)
  • Crohn's disease
  • Inflammatory skin diseases (eczema, psoriasis)
  • Depression, schizophrenia
