Omega-3 (Om-3)FATTY (F) acids have a double bond in the 3rd position of the methyl group and very long-Om-3 F acids (twenty or twenty-carbon atoms) are often discovered in F fish and fish oils and Om-3 unsaturated F acids (FAs) are essential and can Also act as precursor to eicosanoids, in fact Om-3s are so important for human health . The Institute of Medicine's Food and Nutrition Board currently maintains, for the first time, a minimum daily requirement. For years we believed that Only one essential insaturated F acid used to be present, Om-6 unsaturated F acid (found in soybean oils and vegetables), but Scientists have
now added Om-3 to the list of essential vitamins that humans will receive from their diet. For
proper functioning the two basic F acids, Om-3 and Om-6, have to be in balance with each other. If one or the other is too weak or too high, the effect is negative sanctions.
