Fatty acids are the basic structural units of lipids. Lipid is the general term which refers to dietary fat. The body can synthesize many fatty acids. However, those which it cannot manufacture in adequate amounts must be obtained from the diet, and are termed essential fatty acids (EFA's). Fatty acids can be saturated, monosaturated or polyunsaturated depending on the degree to which the basic carbon chain of the molecule is filled with hydrogen. The two essential fats are defined as alpha-linolenic ? an omega-3 fatty acid, and linoleic acid ? an omega-6 fatty acid. The terms, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, refer to what carbon atom of the fatty acid molecule the first double bond is located. Many nutritionists and scientists feel the American diet emphasizes omega-6 fatty acids while omega-3 fatty acids are under consumed. Including more omega-3 rich foods in the diet and decreasing the consumption of animal meats, hydrogenated oils and other saturated fats may protect us against many of today's degenerative diseases.

EFA's are found most abundantly in fish oils and unadulterated seed oils such as, canola, sunflower and safflower oil. Flaxseed oil is an exceptional oil contain- ing both essential fats in appreciable amounts. Flax is nature's richest source of omega-3 fatty acids. Cold saltwater fatty fish such as, herring, haddock, cod, mackerel and salmon are also rich in omega-3 polyunsaturates and serve as the source of fish oil supplements.

It has been recognized that EFA's have profound beneficial effects on the body and influence hormone production, immunity and cardiovascular health. Deficiencies of these various fatty acids have been associated with hormonal imbalance and degenerative disease. Fatty acids maintain the structure and function of the cellular and sub-cellular membranes. Cholesterol transport, degradation and removal from the body is regulated by EFA's. In addition, prostaglandins, hormone-like substances in the body, are influenced by omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids through a series of enzyme-dependent reactions. Prostaglandins function to promote smooth muscle contractions, reduce xxxxxxx, regulate gastric secretions and influence other hormones. Essential fatty acids are also important for normal growth, especially of blood vessels and nerves. In addition, they keep the skin and other tissues youthful and supple via their lubricating capacity. The most important fatty acids include: Linoleic Acid, Linolenic Acid, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA).
