Omega-3 Fatty Acid Intake

Essential fatty acids, or EFAs, are fatty acids that humans and other animals must ingest because the body requires them for good health but cannot synthesise them. As the Omega-3 fatty acids cannot be made by human cells, they require ingestion in the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are classified as essential nutrient complexes.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that carry with them significant health benefits.
In addition to their role in helping our heart and brains function properly, these fats also help protect our genetic material, therefore reducing damage associated with ageing.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that play a critical role in virtually every human function including:

 - growth and development
 - brain and nerve function
 - cholesterol levels
 - digestion
 - emotions and behaviour
 - heart function
 - maintenance of skin and bones
 - immune function
 - vision
 - regulation of healing and inflammation

 
There are thousands of scientific references showing the necessity and benefit of consumption of sufficient amounts of Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in fish and in pharmaceutical-grade fish oil supplements.

Research indicates that sufficient intake of Omega-3 fatty acids is important for heart health, blood sugar regulation, brain health, emotional health, bone health, digestive health, immune health, and cancer prevention.

The typical New Zealand diet is severely deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids and severely toxic with over consumption of inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids. In fact, researchers believe that the majority of people have so little omega-3 in their bodies that test methods cannot even detect it.  (Harris, W. & Isley, W. Clinical evidence for the cardioprotective effects of omega-3 fatty acids. Current Atherosclerosis Reports. 2001 Mar;3(2):174-9)

Becoming sufficient in Omega-3 essential fatty acids is required to GET well and and staying sufficient in Omega-3 essential fatty acids is required to STAY well.
