Health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids

Biofood, Integratori, Superfood

Omega 3s are essential fatty acids that play a key role in maintaining the body’s general health. Although they are called ‘fatty acids’, omega 3s are a type of healthy fat that our bodies cannot produce on their own, which therefore must be obtained through our diet or specific supplements.

Omega 3s are divided into three main types: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is mainly found from plant sources such as flaxseeds, chia seeds and walnuts, while EPA and DHA are mainly found in foods of animal origin such as oily fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna) and fish oil.

There are many reasons why it is important to get an adequate amount of omega-3 in the diet. These fatty acids have been shown to have beneficial effects on cardiovascular health, helping to reduce the risk of heart disease. In addition, omega-3s can play a role in preventing inflammation in the body, improving joint health and alleviating the symptoms of certain conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Omega-3s are also essential for brain health. They have proven useful in preventing and treating mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, as well as promoting good cognitive function and improved memory.
