Omega 3

What are omega-3 fatty acids and what do they do?

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in foods such as fish and linseed, and in dietary supplements such as fish oil.

The three main omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is mainly found in vegetable oils such as flaxseed oil, soybean oil and rapeseed oil. DHA and EPA are found in fish and other seafood.

ALA is an essential fatty acid, which means that your body can not, so you must get the foods and drinks that you consume. Your body can convert some ALA into EPA and then to DHA, but only in very small amounts. Therefore obtaining EPA and DHA from foods (and dietary supplements if you take them) is the only practical way to increase the levels of these omega-3 fatty acids in your body.

Omega-3 fatty acids are important components of the membranes that surround every cell in your body. DHA levels are especially high in retina (eyes), brain and sperm cells. Omega-3 fatty acids also provide calories to give your body energy and have many functions in your heart, blood vessels, lungs, immune system and endocrine system (the network of hormone producing glands).

The intake of omega-3 fatty acids is very important for the correct fatty acid balance, especially because our diet contains relatively many polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acids that are the counterparts and counterparts of omega-3 fatty acids, linoleic acid and arachidonic acid. The ratio between omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids in the current diet is about 10: 1 to 20: 1, while it should actually be about 4: 1. The best result is achieved with omega-3 fatty acids as well as the intake of linoleic acid (mainly from sunflower oil and corn oil) is limited.

Because the body stock of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is limited, it is important to ensure that there is an even supply of omega-3 fatty acids from food (and supplements). There are supplements on the market that contain the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) from vegetable oils such as linseed oil. However, the body's conversion of this ALA to EPA and DHA is very inefficient, so intake of ready-to-use EPA and DHA is necessary to benefit from the health effects of these long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. EPA can be converted to DHA and vice versa. Vegetarians do well to use linseed oil as a dietary supplement with DHA from algae.

Omega 3 fatty acids have a versatile effect; they are present in all body cells and influence the functioning of the cell and the tissue of which they are part.

How many omega-3s do I need?

Experts have not set recommended levels for omega-3 fatty acids except for ALA. Average daily recommended amounts for ALA are shown below in grams (g). The quantity you need depends on your age and gender.

Life phase Recommended amount of ALA
Birth up to 12 months *                            0.5 g
Children 1-3 years                                   0.7 g
Children 4-8 years                                   0.9 g
Boys 9-13 years                                      1.2 g
Girls 9-13 years                                       1.0 g
Teenage boys 14-18 years                      1.6 g
Teen girls 14-18 years                             1.1 g
Men                                                         1.6 g
Ladies                                                     1,1 g
Pregnant teenagers and women             1.4 g
Breastfeeding in teenagers and women  1.3 g
* As total omega-3 fatty acids. All other values ​​are for ALA only.

Which foods offer omega-3s?

Omega-3 fatty acids are naturally found in some foods and are added to some fortified foods. You get omega-3 fatty acids inside by eating a variety of foods, including the following:

Fish and other seafood (especially cold water fat, such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring and sardines)
Nuts and seeds (such as flax seeds, chia seeds and walnuts)
Vegetable oils (such as linseed oil, soy oil and canola oil)
Enriched foods (such as certain brands of eggs, yogurt, juices, milk, soya drinks and infant formula)
