On cardiovascular health, omega-3 fatty acids help in improving blood flow, lowering triglyceride levels, regulating normal heart rhythm, and maintaining healthy blood pressure. With these actions, Omega-3 helps prevent the most common heart diseases like coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, heart attack, and atherosclerosis. Omega 3 benefits also extend to women’s health by improving symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome. Omega-3 fatty acid supplements produce anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects useful in arthritis.

Not all fats are harmful to health. Some are not just good for the health but also helpful in preventing health problems from occurring. Omega 3 fatty acids are perhaps the best example of these good fats with health promoting and disease preventing powers. Omega 3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids naturally found in fatty fishes like albacore tuna, mackerel, sardines, salmon, trout, and herring. There are three Omega 3 types namely ALA (Alpha-Linolenic Acid), EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid), and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). ALA is commonly found in plants and EPA and DHA are the ones in fish oils. EPA and DHA are known as the twin Omega 3 fatty acids but like any other twins, these two also have their unique qualities and important roles to play in health. DHA’s function is more related to the structure and the functioning of the body because it is an important part of the cell membranes. DHA is highly involved in brain function as it is found in high concentrations in nerve tissues. EPA on the other hand plays the regulatory role. EPA is the precursor to eicosanoids, a hormone like substance produced in the body. EPA is more involved in immune system and the production of many hormones. Together, EPA and DHA produce the Omega 3 benefits needed by the body.
