Omega-3 fatty acids‚ also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)‚ are essential fatty acids that are implicated in several bodily functions. However‚ the body cannot make these fatty acids‚ making it necessary to get the required amounts from food (e.g. fatty fish) or supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish‚ such as salmon‚ cod‚ tuna‚ and halibut‚ other seafood including algae and krill‚ some plants‚ and nut oils.
Although Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in supporting healthy cardiovascular function and are popular for their ability to help manage risk of heart disease‚ they are also extremely important for brain function as well as normal growth and development.
Ethyl Ester (EE) versus Triglyceride (TG) forms of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Most fish oil supplements are either available in Ethyl Ester form or the Triglyceride form. Structurally‚ the major difference between the two forms is that in Ethyl Ester‚ the fatty acids (EPA & DHA) are esterified to an ethanol backbone‚ while in TG‚ the fatty acids are esterified to a glycerol alcohol backbone; there are absolutely no differences in the two forms of fish oil in terms of stability. The vast majority of clinical studies examining supplemental Omega-3s have been performed on the Ethyl Ester form and results from studies comparing the relative bioavailability of the EE form versus the TG form have found increased bioavailability of the TG form in the short-term (2 weeks)‚ but this difference disappears when fish oil is routinely supplemented and a steady state has been achieved over a longer period of time.
The scientific evidence currently available does not point to any significant differences between the two forms in terms of bioavailability or health benefits when taken over extended periods of time (which is the norm for most individuals) and the decision to supplement with the TG form versus the EE form is‚ in most cases‚ a matter of personal preference.
Balancing the Omega-3 to Omega-6 Ratio.
It is important to note that the typical American diet tends to contain 14 - 25 times more Omega-6 fatty acids than Omega-3 fatty acids‚ which many nutritionally oriented physicians consider to be way too high on the Omega-6 side. The high consumption of Omega-6 either from diet and/or supplementation is problematic because Omega-6 fatty acids are pro-inflammatory and excess consumption of these fatty acids can lead to health conditions for which inflammation is a risk factor. Consuming enough Omega-3 fatty acids‚ on the other hand‚ is necessary to balance the pro-inflammatory action of the Omega-6 Fatty Acids and is crucial to achieving and maintaining optimal health.
