The important components in our human body such as nerve cells and substances known as prostaglandins and leukotrienes are made from Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Prostaglandins and leukotrienes are important in inflammatory response. These fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory action because prostaglandins and leukotrienes derived from them have less inflammatory activity than prostaglandins and leukotrienes derived from other types of fatty acids.
How Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids helps?
The essential fatty acids (Omega-3 & -6) are incorporated into every cell membrane in the body, in the form of compounds called phospholipids. Cell membranes play the vital role of regulating what goes into, and what comes out of, each cell.
The integrity and fluidity of the cell membrane is determined by the type of phospholipid that is available for the body to use. Cell membranes made up mainly of phospholipids derived from the essential polyunsaturated fatty acids are more fluid and function better than cell membranes made up of saturated fat or trans fatty acids. A cell membrane working at optimal levels retains vital nutrients and electrolytes.
