Omega-3 fatty acid (Alpha-linolenic acid) is an essential fatty acid that plays an important role in brain function and may aid in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Research on the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acid have shown that it may be useful for supporting the following conditions. Asthma, diabetes arthritis, osteoporosis, some cancers, high cholesterol high blood pressure, attention disorders, depressive disorders and digestive disorders,

There are many health conditions that can be prevented by the daily intake of Omega-3 essential fatty acids. EPA helps to promote a healthy heart and circulatory system, improves joint flexibility, lowers triglycerides, supports proper immune function, and promotes positive mood and emotional well-being.

DHA is essential for healthy brain function, protects the aging mind, supports a healthy pregnancy, promotes good mood and emotional well-being, improves behavior, focus, and learning in children, supports healthy visual and brain development in fetuses and infants, and reduces the harmful effects of stress. Higher oleic acid reduces blood LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.

Linoleic acid is an omega 6 fatty acid and is an essential fatty acid and natural sources of this fatty acid include sunflower oil and safflower oil. Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a naturally occurring fatty acid which is produced in the human intestine. 

This form of fatty acid is commonly found in the animal and dairy products like meat, milk, egg, cheese, poultry, etc. Research shows that one of the probable reasons for obesity and weight gain problems in people is absence or insufficient amounts of linoleic acid in their diet. It is believed that Linoleic acid is quite effective in making people lose weight and gain muscle mass. Moreover, this fatty acid is also beneficial in reducing risks of different types of cancers like breast, prostate, lung, stomach, etc. by inhibiting cell proliferation.

Oleic acid is essential to the human body and we can manufacture a limited amount, oleic acid is also known, as Omega-9, or monounsaturated oleic and stearic acid, is a non essential fatty acid produced naturally by the body whenever there is enough of either Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.

This fatty acid plays a role in preventing heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels. Other benefits of omega 9 are that it reduces hardening of the arteries and improves immune function. Within the body omega-3 fatty acids are converted to DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid, respectively). 

DHA and EPA are highly unsaturated fats that play very important roles in the vision development and brain function of infants. A lack of DHA has been associated with Alzheimer disease, attention disorders, phenylketonuria, cystic fibrosis and other diseases.
