What Are Omega 3 Fatty Acids? - Hemp Well

Hempseed oil is beneficial because of the omega 3 fatty acids. These acids are important for a number of reasons, including maintaining heart health and preventing chronic diseases. The omega fatty acids in hempseed oil can help to lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. They can also help to reduce inflammation throughout the body, which can lead to a number of chronic diseases.

Hempseed oil is an excellent source of these omega fatty acids and can be a helpful addition to your diet if you are looking to improve your overall health.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in foods, such as fish, corn and flaxseed, and more commonly found in dietary supplements like fish oil, hemp oil and flaxseed oil.

Their are three main omega-3 fatty acids; alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is most common in plant oils such as flaxseed, hemp, soybean, and canola oils. DHA and EPA are found in fish and other seafood.

ALA is an essential fatty acid, meaning that your pet's body cannot make it, it must be consumed from food or supplements. An animal's body can convert some ALA into EPA and then to DHA in very small amounts. Therefore, getting EPA and DHA from foods (and dietary supplements if necessary) is the best way to increase levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the body.

Omega-3s are important components of the membranes that surround each cell in the body. DHA levels are especially high in retina (eye), brain, and sperm cells. Omega-3s also provide calories to give animals energy and have many functions in your heart, blood vessels, lungs, immune system, and endocrine system (the network of hormone-producing glands).
