- What health support do we get from essential fatty acids?
Omega-3s are an essential part of cell integrity, hormones and DNA function. DHA supports nerve cell membranes and neurological transmitters. It is a key to healthy mood and retinal health. It is also recommended for pre-natal nutrition for the growth and functional development of the fetal and infant brain. EPA is most associated with a healthy cardiovascular system. DHA and EPA together can support healthy heart function, arteries and blood vessel dilation.
- Why do we need omega-3 fatty acids instead of other types?
When an outside stimulus, such as a hormone, enters the cell membrane, the fatty acids in the membrane are converted to prostaglandins, intra-cellular messengers that travel to the DNA inside the cell nucleus and instruct the cell as to what compounds to make or what function to perform. Current research indicates that omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA send positive messages that support healthy physiological responses. On the other hand, balanced amounts of omega-6 fatty acids from corn, sunflower, safflower oil or meat are healthy, but unbalanced ratios do not help the body maintain long-term health. Current research indicates that the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 should be 2:1 or even 1:1. In the current American diet, it is about 25:1. Supplementing with omega-3s like DHA and EPA help bring this ratio to a more balanced state.
