Polyunsaturated fats consist of fatty acids, many of which the human body needs in the same way as it needs vitamins and minerals, to maintain a wide range of normal functioning and health. The body can synthesize some of these fatty acids on its own, but others (called “essential” fatty acids or EFAs) need to be obtained through the diet.
EFAs are categorised into different families – Omega-3, Omega-6 or Omega-9 – depending on their chemical structure. Fish and seafood are some of the richest available sources of Omega-3 EFAs like EPA and DHA; while Omega-6 EFAs tend to be found in many plant-based oils, and Omega-9 EFAs most commonly occur in olive oil and sunflower oil.
Fish and seafood provide two especially important polyunsaturated fatty acids: EPA & DHA. The body requires these essential fatty acids to maintain healthy joints, protect heart and brain health, and support normal blood circulation and skin health. These fatty acids are used in the body to make prostaglandins, hormone-like substances involved in anti-inflammatory processes.
Essential Fatty Acids do not operate in isolation in the body, but often interact with each other, balancing out each other’s effects. This means that optimal Omega-3 intake is often described in terms of a ratio of balance with Omega-6 EFAs, rather than an absolute figure on its own. Nutritional research suggests that the body requires an Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFA ratio of 4:11 or less to maintain general health and wellbeing.
The typical Western diet contains little fish or seafood, and provides an Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFA ratio of between 15:1 and 16.7:12, which is significantly out of balance with the research-recommended level. This can result in low Omega-3 EFA levels, which may cause dry itchy skin; joint discomfort, swelling and stiffness; slowed wound healing; and poor memory and concentration. Because of this, most people will benefit from increasing their dietary Omega-3 consumption.
Nutra-Life Fish Oil with Vitamin D is sourced from sustainably-harvested populations of cold-water fish including anchovy, and caught in the oceans off the coast of South America, then manufactured and packed right here in New Zealand.
