OMEGA 3-6-9 Benefits
One of the first olive oils that has been proven to cover 5 of the health claims of the EU regulations, now available for your diet.
Omega-3 fats have several important functions, including:
IMPROVING HEART HEALTH
Omega-3 fatty acids lower triglyceride levels and increase good cholesterol lipoprotein levels. They have also been shown to have the ability to reduce platelet aggregation, which can prevent coronary artery blockage.
Research on omega-3 fatty acids has demonstrated that they also increase arterial compliance, reduce atherosclerosis through their effects on metabolism and reduce inflammatory markers in the body.
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
Clinical research has demonstrated that omega-3s can cross the membrane of brain cells and interact with mood-related molecules inside the brain, always combined with their anti-inflammatory actions that may help alleviate symptoms of depression.
Omega-6 fatty acids are also essential and obtained from our diet and play a key role in our immune system and provide much needed energy.
These fatty acids can be metabolized through various enzymatic pathways, thus creating a few compounds that are protective for the body such as thromboxanes, prostacyclins, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, hydroxy- and hydroperoxy-fatty acids and lipoxins, which have been shown to have beneficial effects on our body's immune response, regulating cell growth, angiogenesis, inflammation, cellular immunology, and protecting against thrombosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
Omega-9 fatty acids are produced by the body, however, eating foods rich in omega-9 fatty acids can have significant benefits. Studies have found that an omega-9 rich diet is due to fewer inflammatory disorders, shielding the immune system by activating various pathways of competent immune system cells.
At the same time, omega-9 fatty acids have also been shown to protect against cancer by inhibiting cell proliferation.
There is conflicting research regarding the relationship between foods rich in omega-9 fatty acids and cancer prevention and treatment, except for omega-9 rich olive oil. This is because high oleic acid content is thought to possess chemopreventive activity against breast cancer, with the anti-cancer effect of oleic acid being mediated through multiple mechanisms, including suppression of proliferation and migration of both breast cancer cells and the activation of tumor suppressor genes.
