Omega-3 is the most talked about omega fatty acid, which is not surprising as it’s a vital supplement that contributes to a healthier life. The essential nutrient is considered a contributing factor to normal cardiovascular health. Omega-3 also contains plenty of the fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These fatty acids promote normal cardiovascular function, while DHA also contributes to brain development and cognitive function.
Omega-6 is a fatty acid group that contains several important fatty acids, several of which are important for the formation of cells and for maintaining normal brain function, for example. In addition, it has been noted that some of the omega-6 fats may be important in reducing inflammation in the body. Often, both omega-3 and omega-6 are present in the same food, and we need both. GLA evening primrose oil EKO is an example of a natural source of omega 6.
Omega-9 is a group of fatty acids that, among other things, can contribute to improved blood lipids, and thus also to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Therefore, omega-9 acts as an excellent boost to the polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6.
