Omega3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids which possess most potent immunomodulatory activities. Omega 3 fatty acids are vital for normal metabolism but some of potential health benefits of supplementation are controversial. Omega 3 fatty acids are considered as essential fatty acids because that cannot be synthesized by human body. There is tentative evidence that marine omega polyunsaturated fatty acids reduce the risk of breast cancer but this is not conclusive on humans. Omega 3 fatty acids on rats inhibit the development of premalignant and malignant lesions on rat model of bladder cancer, which may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-proliferative, and anti-angiogenic properties. Animal experiments and clinical intervention studies indicate that omega fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and, therefore, might be useful in management of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Omega 3 fatty acids prevents against heart diseases, diabetes and also against Dementia and Alzheimer’s diseases and slows ageing and reduces depression levels, risk of cancer and improves blood cholesterol level and bone strength. Omega fatty acids are seems to be ‘panacea’ for good health. Found in fishes such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, herring, soybean, flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, spinach, walnuts and salad greens, omega fatty acids can be easily included in your diet.
