A brief key to omega fatty acids

Fatty acids are among the most important molecules present in nature

  • Fatty acids are the building blocks of the body – all organs in the body are surrounded by a membrane of fatty acids.
  • A cell membrane formed of fatty acids is a vital structure in terms of cell functioning – all transport between a cell and its environment happens through the cell membrane.
  • Properly functioning cell membranes maintain the well-being of the body.
  • The functioning of important structures of the body (the brain, eyes, skin, gametes, etc.) is based on fatty acids.
  • The composition of cell membranes can be affected by means of the fatty acids received from nutrition. Essential fatty acids in vegetable oils and omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil

Some of the fatty acids are produced by the body, others must be obtained from nutrition
