Omega-3 Fatty Acids (EPA and DHA) otherwise called as Long Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (LCPUFA) are known as Essential Fatty Acids(EFA). The term ‘Essential’ means those substances that are crucial for good health. These are not synthesized by the body and hence must be supplemented through diet.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids when adequately available in the body, are incorporated into the bilayer phospholipids cell membranes. This ensures the strength, integrity and fluidity of the cell membranes. Regular intake of Omega-3 decreases cardiovascular incidents and severity and lowers mortality by 30%.It also reduces the chances of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Brain is second in terms of fat content only to adipose tissue, the fat store of the body, 60% of the brain is fat and more than 60% of this fat is DHA. DHA supplementation is mandatorily recommended for pregnant women and lactating mothers.
RECOMMENDED DOSAGE: Fish oil doses vary depending on the goal of supplementation. For general health, 250mg of combined EPA and DHA is the minimum dose and can be obtained via fish intake. The American Heart Association recommends 1g daily. If the goal of supplementation is to reduce soreness, a 5g dose spread over the course of a day will be effective. You may take 2g post lunch and 2-3g post dinner, or as directed by health care professionals.
