As science investigates Omega 3 essential fatty acids, their importance to our health becomes more and more apparent. It is now evident that all aspects of our health are influenced by our intake of these precious nutrients, whatever our age. That is why they are now added to baby foods, and why the Government recommends we eat oily fish at least twice a week.
When we ingest omega 3, our body breaks the fatty acids down to 2 other fatty acids - Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and these are the components our body uses for essential activity. Flax and other seed oils contain omega 3, whereas fish oil contains the preformed DHA and EPA in a form directly usable by our bodies. Doctors and nutritionists are noticing that some people are unable to efficiently break down omega 3 into the useful DHA and EPA components, which is why many people are now advised to supplement with clean, stable, whole body fish oils.
DHA and EPA are used in the membranes in every body tissue where their presence has both a stabilising and anti-inflammatory effect on the tissue. These nutrients are particularly known for their benefits in the following organs and tissues:
