Fatty acids omega-3 belong to the group of the most important of healthy fats. The body cannot synthesize them, which is why it is so important to provide them from outside in optimal amounts. The benefits of supplementation are in fact invaluable.
The most important property of omega-3 is the reduction of inflammation and improve of the immune response. The second important property is the ability to synthesize so called eicosanoids. These compounds regulate blood pressure, have affect on erythropoiesis, inhibits platelet aggregation, maintain normal bronchial smooth muscle tone, "look after" the functioning of the digestive, vascular, nervous and immune system.
Omega-3 also intensify the blood circulation (one of the protective mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases) and regulate lipid profile (effectively lower triglyceride levels). It is also worth mentioning that, according to the latest research, appropriate dosage of these fats, regularly used can have anticancer effect, especially in respect of breast, prostate and colon cancer. But remember that omega-3 thin the blood, so it is not recommended to take it for example with aspirin.
