We hear dieticians & nutritionists talk about the importance of essential fatty acids in our body. But do we really stop to question them about why it might be so important? Omega 3 & 6 do not naturally occur in the body, so we depend on external sources. Here’s a rundown on why it’s needed, not wanted by us.
Omega 3 & Why
Please bear the technical jargon coming through, but you need to read this. Omega 3 is an unsaturated fat. If you know anything about fats, you will know that unsaturated fats are good fats & essential to the temple that you call, body. Omega 3 is known to improve heart health & promote the growth & maintenance of healthy bones among many other benefits.
Omega 6 & Why
Just like Omega 3, Omega 6 is an unsaturated fat. The functions of Omega 6 are to primarily provide energy. While monitoring is essential, making sure you take the right amount is just as important. Having the right amount omegas in your body is the difference between a healthy diet & an unhealthy one.
