Omega Supplements - Amazing Benefits and Facts |

There are many types of omega fatty acids, and all of these types are needed by the body in different quantities to meet its nutritional needs and perform its natural functions properly and healthily.

Types of omega fatty acids

  • Omega-9:
    It is one of the non-essential “unsaturated” monounsaturated fatty acids, as the body can naturally produce and form it, which makes it abundantly available within the cells of the body.
    There are no specific recommendations about how much omega-9 to eat because it is not essential.
    This type of acid is found in many foods that we eat on a daily basis, such as:
    Nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils.
  • Omega-6:
    It is one of the essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, which means that the body cannot form it, but needs a daily intake of it in the diet.
    It has many health benefits.
    The body's need for it is much less than a quarter of what the body needs from omega-3 acids, so it is usually found in nutritional supplements with omega-3 and it is not recommended to take it alone.
    It is found in most of the foods that we eat daily, such as:
    Almonds, cashews, soybean oil, etc.
  • Omega-3:
    It is the most important type of omega fatty acid, and it is an essential "unsaturating" fatty acid.

    Here are facts and benefits about omega-3 that you may read for the first time!

Omega-3 fatty acids

They are important basic nutrients that the body cannot synthesize within its own cells, so they must be obtained in appropriate quantities from foods or nutritional supplements.

There are three main types of omega-3 fatty acids called ALA, DHA and EPA.

EPA and DHA are found mainly in some types of fish.

ALA is found in plant sources such as nuts and seeds.

Omega-3 benefits

  1. It improves mental and psychological disorders (such as: anxiety, depression, Alzheimer's, ..) and reduces the frequency of mood swings and relapses in people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

  2. It reduces symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, a behavioral disorder associated with the nervous system, and researchers recently noted that fish oil supplements were among the most promising treatments for it.

  3. Improves sleep quality Recently, low levels of DHA have been linked to lower levels of the sleep-inducing hormone melatonin.

  4. It is an essential supplement for women during pregnancy and lactation, as getting enough omega-3s during pregnancy is associated with many benefits for the baby, including:
    Proper growth of the brain, increase in IQ.
    - The development of children's perception, communication and social skills.
    Low risk of growth retardation.
    - Low risk of ADHD, autism, and cerebral palsy.

  5. Eye protection and normal visual functions:
    DHA is the structural component of the retina, which helps prevent macular degeneration which in turn can cause visual impairment and blindness.

  6. It is important for the health of the heart and the circulatory system, as studies have shown that it prevents many risk factors for heart disease and strokes, as:
    - Contributes to raising benign cholesterol levels, and reducing harmful triple fat levels.
    - Prevents the formation of blood clots, maintains the flexibility of the arteries and protects them from sclerosis.
    - Helps treat high blood pressure.

  7. It helps in fighting obesity, as it increases the metabolism rate and burns body fat, especially in the abdomen and buttocks.

  8. Reduce the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

  9. It raises the efficiency of the immune system, and fights chronic infections that may result in various types of cancer and diseases.

  10. It fights many autoimmune diseases such as: (rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, and others...).

  11. Supports bone and joint health.

  12. Relieves menstrual pain, as studies have shown that it is more effective - in relieving menstrual pain in women - than ibuprofen, which is an anti-inflammatory drug.

  13. Important for healthy skin and complexion:
    DHA is the component responsible for the health of the cell membranes that make up a large part of the skin, so getting enough of it makes your skin smooth, hydrated, supple and wrinkle-free.
    - EPA regulates the secretion of skin fats, making it less prone to acne. It also protects the skin from sun damage, as it prevents the secretion of substances that feed on collagen in the skin after exposure to sunlight, and also prevents premature skin aging.

Some foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids:

  • Fish is the first and richest source of omega-3 acids, but its level may vary according to its habitat, type, and growing conditions, such as: (mackerel, salmon, sardines, anchovies...).
    However, it is not recommended for pregnant women to rely on fish as a primary source of Omega-3, due to the risk that these fish may contain high levels of mercury, which may harm the health of the woman and the fetus.
  • caviar.
  • oysters.
  • nut.
  • Peanuts.
  • flaxseed.
  • Chia seeds.
  • oatmeal.
  • Green leafy vegetables, such as: (spinach, broccoli, cauliflower...).
