Essential Fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats and can be broken down into 2 different types omega-3s and omega-6s. They are known as essential because they are necessary for good health but our body cannot produce them. Omega-6 fatty acids are essential and mainly used for energy.
An easy way to get more Omega 3s. You probably already know that eating fish is a healthy choice. But do you know why? Fresh fish is a healthy, high-protein food, but it’s especially important for its omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential fats that your body cannot produce by itself. You can eat lots of cold water fish to get more of these essential fatty acids.
