What omega-3 fatty acids really are

The omega-3 name refers to a whole family of fatty acids. The best sources of omega-3 fatty acids are krill oil and fish oil that contain extraordinary high quantities of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These fatty acids have a positive physiological effect that justifies regular omega-3 supplementation; they have the greatest health benefits. The most common omega-3 fatty acid is the alpha-linolenic acid, from which the body can produce EPA and DHA, although this is the least active substance biologically. Therefore, it is more appropriate to use omega-3 sources like fish oil and krill oil that contain high quantities of the biologically active forms, EPA and DHA. These two fatty acids are the most important omega-3 fatty acids for the human body. The omega-3 fatty acids are essential since the human body is unable to synthetize them, therefore we have to provide them from natural sources to our body.

The omega-3 fatty acids, mainly the outstanding EPA and DHA have proven anti-inflammatory effect, they are excellent immune boosters, they help to prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases, have a beneficial effect on hormone production and help to maintain the health of the joints. And if that' s not enough, both fatty acids are instant nutrients for the brain, besides, they may improve the cognitive function and usually help to decrease or even cease depression symptoms. And we are no near finished the list of the positive physiological effects. Summary:

Omega-3 fatty acids have further benefits, like supporting muscle build (by enhancing regeneration), stimulating glycogen storage in the muscles and they have a positive effect on fat metabolism as well. Therefore if your purpose is to loose some fat, an omega-3 product may be beneficial, even it seems contradictory to eat fat in order to loose fat.
