What are they?
Omega 3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats, a type of fat your body can’t make. Omega-3s are a family of essential fatty acids that play important roles in your body and may provide a number of health benefits .
Like omega-3s, omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids. However, the last double bond is six carbons from the omega end of the fatty acid molecule.
Omega-6 fatty acids are also essential, so you need to obtain them from your diet. They mainly provide energy and other benefits like treating symptoms of chronic disease. The most common omega-6 fat is linoleic acid, which the body can convert to longer omega-6 fats such as arachidonic acid (AA).
Omega-9 fats are nonessential fats that the body can produce. Replacing some saturated fats with omega-9 fats may benefit your health.
