Essential Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids are lipids that are not metabolised by the body and therefore must be obtained from the diet. There are two primary families of essential fatty acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6, with constituent lipids within each group. Western diet typically includes Omega-6 fatty acids in large amounts, and foods like grains, plant-based oils, poultry, and eggs are rich in Omega-6 lipids. However, Omega-3 fatty acids, primarily present in cold-water fish, are not as commonly consumed, and consequently supplementation with Omega-3 has been recommended.
