Chemical Structure

The term omega-3 reveals that the first double bond exists as the third carbon-carbon bond from the terminal methyl end of the carbon chain. The chemical structure of alpha-linolenic acid (18:3?9C, 12C, 15C, ALA) given in Fig-1, is an essential n-3fatty acid (18:3?9C, 12C, 15C indicating the chain of 18 carbons with 3 double bonds at 19th, 12th, and 15th carbon).There is a dispute between the chemists and physiologists for naming of the fatty acids as the former ones count them from the co-end of…

Essential Fatty Acids?

Why are they called essential fatty acids? The essential fatty acids were given their name when researchers found that they were essential to the normal growth in young children and animal (William E.M Lands, 1992).A small quantity of omega -3 in the diet (1% of total calories) enabled normal growth. Increasing the had little to n additional effect on growth. Likewise, researchers found that omega-6 Fatty acids (such as y – linolenic acid and archidonic acid) play a similar role in normal growth. The increasing awareness of health…

Importance of Mankind

Fish Oil and Their Importance for Mankind It is established that fish oils have beneficial effects on various human diseases, especially on coronary heart disease. So much so, there has been focal attention around the world on the use of fish oils as a curative, particularly in respect of coronary heart diseases in human, since 1970s.Omega-3 fatty acids form fish oils can prevent\cure human coronary heart disease (Kanth,1987;Jehangir).both health professionals and the public have been evincing keen interest on the role of these oils in the…

Health Benefits

Cardiovascular Disease The importances of omega -3 fatty acids have been known since 1930 for better health and growth. But the importance of awareness of their benefits increased later as two Danish scientist Dyer berg and bang came out with results of their extensive research in 1970s Green land Eskimos which showed that a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids significantly reduced plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and improved fat tolerance, prolonged bleeding time. They said diet reduce platelet counts because the Greenland Eskimos used to…
