The essential facts about fatty acids

Found in fish and plant oils, essential fatty acids aren’t simply a nice-to-have. In fact, they’re absolutely essential to our well-being. Not only are these micro miracle workers responsible for reducing the risk of cardiac issues, but they also assist with lowering blood pressure, inflammation and improving brain function and mood.

Given the lists of benefits, medical professionals recommend up to 3,000mg per day as a suggested daily dose. This can be achieved by eating vast quantities of fish, but there are easier ways to up your intake.

Essential Fatty Acid Supplements tend to come in the form of Omega 3, 6 and 9 supplements, as well as Cod Liver Oil, Salmon Oil and Flaxseed Oil. Different types of fatty acids are linked to certain functions. For instance, the Omega 6 fatty acid, GLA, supports healthy hormone balance in women through their different life stages. So make sure to consult your health professional to find your perfect fit.
