Fatty acids are the basic structural units of lipids, which are dietary fats. The body can synthesize many fatty acids, but those that cannot be manufactured in adequate amounts must be obtained from the diet. These are called essential fatty acids (EFAs).
Fatty acids are classified as saturated, monosaturated or polyunsaturated – depending on the amount of hydrogen in the basic carbon chain of the molecule.
(The process of ‘hydrogenation’ – hydrogenated vegetable oil – involves adding hydrogen to the molecule to make a polyunsaturated, liquid oil, into a saturated, solid oil, such as margarine).
Essential fatty acids may help:
Support hormone production, immunity and cardiovascular health.
Maintain the structure and function of the cellular and sub-cellular membranes.
Regulate cholesterol transport, degradation and removal from the body.
Support prostaglandins – hormone-like substances that promote smooth muscle contractions, regulate blood pressure, regulate gastric secretions, and impact other hormones – through a series of enzyme-dependent reactions.
Support normal growth, especially of blood vessels and nerves.
Keep skin and other tissue youthful and supple by lubricating abilities.
EFAs are most abundant in fish oils and unadulterated seed oils, such as canola, sunflower and safflower oils. Flaxseed oil is an exceptional oil, containing both omega-3 and omega-6 in appreciable amounts. Cold saltwater fatty fish – such as herring, haddock, cod, mackerel, and salmon – are also rich in omega-3 polyunsaturates and serve as the source of fish oil supplements.
The most important fatty acids are linoleic acid, linolenic acid, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Omega 6 and omega 3 oils may not be suitable for individuals taking anti-blood clotting drugs such as Warfarin, Coumarin and Heparin.
GLA (Evening Primrose Oil) may not be suitable for people suffering from epilepsy.
