Omega-3-6-9 is a supplement containing omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9.
Omega 3 is an essential fat that your body does not produce naturally, which means you have to get your daily recommendation through food or supplements. The 3 most common types of omega-3 fatty acids include eicosapentaenoic acid/EPA, which comes from fish and helps reduce inflammation, docosahexaenoic acid/DHA, which also comes from fish and makes up 8% of brain weight and is very important for brain development, and alpha-linolenic acid/ALA which is mainly found in plants and is converted to EPA and DHA once digested. Benefits of omega-3 includes improving heart health, supporting mental health, reducing weight and waist size, decreasing liver fat and more.
Omega-6 is also an essential fatty acid not produced by the body. Omega-6 acids have shown benefits in treating symptoms of chronic disease and can help with symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Other studies have shown that taking omega-6 with a breast cancer medication has been more effective than taking only the breast cancer medication. It is also thought that taking this supplement (3.2g) daily will reduce body fat. Alternatively, Omega-6 helps with turning essential fats into energy.
Omega-9 fatty acids aren’t as essential, as they can be produced by the body, and are the most abundant fat in most cells of the body. It is thought that high-monounsaturated fat (omega-9) diets could reduce plasma triglycerides by 19% and “bad” very-low-density-lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol by 22% in patients with diabetes.
In conclusion, Omega-3-6-9 is effective in maintaining good health due to the natural fatty acids found inside, directly supplying the patient with the fatty acids they may be missing.
