Omega-3 acids are a family of polyunsaturated fatty acids that include: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and α-linolenic acid (ALA). A great number of scientific studies shows that the acids play a very important role in the organism’s normal functioning.
Their positive effect consists above all in reducing the concentration of triglycerides in blood plasma, normalising blood pressure, preventing blood clots, inhibiting the development of type 3 diabetes, coronary artery disease and coronary heart disease, preventing atherosclerosis, inflammations, allergies and cancers. Moreover, they exhibit a protective effect on the immune system, stimulate the normal functioning of nerve cell membranes in the cerebral cortex and, thanks to inhibiting lipogenesis, play a role in preventing obesity.
As their endogenic synthesis is insufficient to fulfil the daily requirement of the organism, they should be delivered from the outside. Unfortunately, the consumption of the main sources of omega-3 acids turns out to be too small. That is usually caused by the avoidance of eating fat marine fish, which is a result of a large degree of water pollution, as well as high prices of such food products. What is more, many bred fish available on the market are poor in omega-3 acids. In such cases, dietary supplements are of great help.
