The Importance of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 Fatty Acids are among the litany of vitamins and nutrients that are vitally important for optimal human health and function.
One of the most essential reasons why Omega-3s are so integrally vital is the effect of these fatty acids upon the cellular structure, precisely, the structure of the cell membrane.
For cells to operate correctly as they should, the cell membrane should be flexible, able to allow the right chemicals and nutrients to pass through the walls of the cell. Omega-3s facilitate the ability of compounds to move efficiently through the cellular membrane.
This means that fats, minerals, vitamins, and proteins, as well as vital messengers such as enzymes and hormones, can do their job.
This improves health at the cellular level, which, in turn, improves systemic function and overall physiological function. If the cells can't do their job at an individual level, the adverse effects will only multiply at the organ level. This means that Omega-3s are a central aspect of wellness maintenance, and are a powerful tool in facilitating your ability to live a long and healthy life.
What Makes Omega-3 Fatty Acids Such an Important Part of a Balanced Diet?
The thing that makes dietary Omega-3 so important is that the human body has no means to produce its own Omega-3s.
Our bodies can manufacture a wide variety of enzymes, but we must obtain others from an outside source. For example, most animals can produce their Vitamin C naturally, but humans are one of the few mammals that are unable to make their own Vitamin C.
Because we are unable to fabricate our own Omega-3s, these nutrients are also known as Essential Fatty Acids.
Omega-3s Provide Powerful Results for the Cardiovascular System
The benefits of Omega-3s are widespread and potent. The heart is one of the organs that benefit from Omega-3s the most.
When the body receives sufficient Omega-3s through supplementation and diet, the heart is allowed to thrive.
For the heart to beat efficiently, the muscle cells must be highly flexible, able to contract forcefully to deliver blood to the disparate parts of the human body.
These benefits also extend to the arteries. Atherosclerosis is the hardening of the arteries, and it has disastrous effects upon healthy blood flow. Omega-3s contribute to healthy, flexible arteries.
On the other hand, Trans-Fats have the opposite effect on cardiovascular health, as well as overall cellular function. Trans-Fats contribute to the increased rigidity of cellular membranes.
In the case of the heart and arteries, this means that the muscle cells won't be able to contract as effortlessly, which impairs blood flow.
Trans-Fats should be avoided at all costs to preserve a healthy body and a healthy heart.
