What are the benefits of omega 3 6 and 9?
Fatty acids make up the membranes of every cell in the body and produce hormone like substances called prostaglandins which have anti-inflammatory effects and are important for many biological processes, including energy metabolism. Many of today's modern diets provide an excess of omega 6 essential fatty acids compared to omega 3 which is thought to be proinflammatory in the body and to contribute to the increase in atherosclerosis, obesity, and diabetes. This imbalance in intake of essential fats is thought to be due to the effects of modern agricultural practices which has decreased the omega-3 fatty acid content in many foods and diets high in processed, refined foods.
