Omega-3 fatty acids

Context: A recent study challenges the health benefits of fish oil supplements rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.

•    The study concluded that regular fish oil was associated with a 13% higher risk of  developing atrial fibrillation  (a heart rhythm disorder)  and 5%  increased risk  of stroke in  the general population but  could help  in managing disease progression.
•    Fish oil is derived from the tissues of fatty fish. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
•    These essential fats are known for their anti-inflammatory properties and their role in maintaining various bodily functions, including brain and heart health.

Omega-3 fatty acids

•    Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA).
•    It is rich in foods such as marine fish, walnuts, soybeans, and seeds such as flax seed oil and canola oil. Types
•    EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid): EPA is a “marine omega-3” because it is found in fish.
•    DHA (docosahexaenoic acid): DHA is also a marine omega-3 found in fish.
•    ALA (alpha-linolenic acid): ALA is the form of omega-3 found in plants.

Benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids

•    It lowers blood pressure and helps reduce joint inflammation in rheumatoid disease.
•    It helps prevent and alleviate dementia, depression, asthma, migraine, and diabetes.
•    High doses of EPA and DHA can significantly lower blood triglyceride levels. DHA, in particular, is vital for brain health and cognitive function.
•    It reduces the risk of heart attack and prevents arrhythmias.
