About Omega 3 fatty acids
Omega 3 fatty acids belong to the group of unsaturated fatty acids. The body is unable to produce them, so the body must be provided with adequate amounts of food or supplements.
Proven physiological effects
Their regular, long-term consumption reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. Fatty acids build up in the cell wall and affect their elasticity. This is also the case for red blood cells: they become more flexible due to the incorporation of polyunsaturated fatty acids. This flexibility allows them to reach the tissues through the walls of the capillaries and supply them with oxygen. They reduce inflammatory reactions and prevent blood clotting, helping circulation and inhibiting the development of thrombosis. Recent research has also highlighted that consuming the right proportions of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids can help maintain mental health and reduce anxiety and depression. Some research suggests that people who consume a lot of omega 3 have up to 55% less risk of colon cancer, and regular consumption can reduce the chances of prostate cancer and breast cancer. Additional benefits of omega 3 fatty acids include the fact that their intake is accompanied by milder menstrual cramps. According to one study, regular intake of omega-3 and vitamin B12 may even be more effective than painkillers.
