Omega-3 fatty acids

11. October 2017

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids: they are vital for human health. As the human body cannot produce them, it is important to consume sufficient amounts of poly-saturated fatty acids as part of your daily diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are responsible for various bodily processes, including the creation and regeneration of cells. They have an anti-inflammatory effect, which makes them suitable for treating chronic inflammations, such as arthritis. Even more importantly: omega-3 fatty acids protect the heart. They improve the viscosity of the blood, thus reducing the risk of coagulation. This prevents heart attacks and thrombosis and minimises the risk of cardiovascular disease. The human organism transforms the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These two acids help protect and generate neural tissue and support the functioning of the brain. Fatty acids are said to prevent dementia and eye disease, too. Consuming enough omega-3 fatty acids is important to support your bodily functions. Vegetable oils are an easy way to integrate these acids into your everyday dietary intake. Linseed oil, walnut oil, rape seed oil and hemp oil contain an especially large amount of omega-3 fatty acids. They are an effortless addition to your meals. They are a natural, vegan alternative to fish oil, which also contains plenty of omega-3 fatty acids and is frequently used in dietary supplements.
