What is Omega 3 used for?
Fish oils are the basis of many people’s supplement regimen, and for good reason. They provide omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids which are essential for general health and wellbeing. These ‘good’ fats are used for almost every bodily function and need to be consumed through the diet.
Omega-3 fatty acids, also referred to as PUFAs (n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids) are essential fatty acids, which cannot be produced by the human body even though they are beneficial. This is why these fatty acids have to be taken from food. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in tuna, mackerel, sturgeon, salmon, bluefish, mullet, sardines, anchovy, trout, herring, menhaden and sardines. 3.5 ounces of these fish species provide around 1 gram of Omega 3. In order to prevent spoilage, Omega 3 supplements also contain a small quantity of vitamin E. Besides, they can be combined with iron, vitamins A, B, C, D and calcium.
The most important omega-3 fatty acids are:
- Alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) – found in virtually all kinds of foods
- Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) – found in fish
- Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – found in both seaweed and fish
As mentioned above, ALA can be found in various foods, such as green leafy vegetables, vegetable oils (flaxseed, soybean and canola), seeds, beans and nuts. When ALA is ingested, small amounts of it are usually converted into DHA and EPA. The main sources of DHA and EPA are fatty fish and fish oil such as herring, tuna, salmon and mackerel. Vegetarians can take their daily Omega-3 fatty acids from algae oils or from dietary supplements that are available under the form of oils and capsules. The most popular supplements usually include flaxseed oil, walnut oil and fish oil.
How does Omega 3 work?
The human body is not able to produce omega-3 fatty acids on its own. Despite the belief according to which the omega-6 fatty acids included in Western diets are turn into omega-3 fatty acids, the human body is not able to do this on its own. Two of the omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) have been studied thoroughly before being introduced in supplements that are based on fish oil.
Omega-3 fatty acids are said to reduce swelling and pain. This is probably one of the reasons why they have turned out to be effective as a treatment for dry eyes and psoriasis. These fatty acids are also used for treating several heart conditions, as they can prevent blood clotting.
