Omega-3 fats come in different forms:
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) – This fatty acid helps reduce inflammation and improves mood by producing chemicals called eicosanoids.
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) – A fatty acid that is crucial for normal brain function and development. It makes up to 8% of brain weight.
Alpha-linolenic Acid (ALA) – The body mainly uses this 18-carbon fatty acid for energy.
What’s the difference between the different Omega fats?
Though omega-3, 6 and 9 are all unsaturated acids with many health benefits, they are all different from each other with respect to the position of their chemical structures – double bonds – and therefore, also differ in their properties and health benefits.
Omega-3 and 6 are polyunsaturated fatty acids – “Poly”, which means many and “unsaturated” indicating double bonds. Omega-3 refers to the position of the final double bond in the chemical structure and it is three carbon atoms from the “omega” molecular chain.
Omega-6 is different from omega-3 as the last double bond is six carbon atoms from the omega end of the fatty acid molecule.
Omega-9 are monounsaturated fatty acids which means that they have only one double bond. It is located nine carbon atoms from the omega end of the fatty acid molecule.
While Omega-3 and 6 cannot be made by our body and are called essential fats, omega-9 can be produced by our body.
