The body needs fatty acids to survive and can make all but two of them; linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family. These must be supplied by the diet and are thus considered essential fatty acids (EFAs). As we will see in the next sections, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for a healthy diet and these omega-3 and omega-6 supplements can improve life expectancy.



What foods contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids?

Omega-3 fatty acids are found in coldwater fish and fish oil and in perilla and flaxseed oils. Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the Western diet. In contrast. large amounts of food are consumed that contain high levels of omega-6 fatty acids. Although EPA and DHA can be synthesised in the body from alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), synthesis may be insufficient under certain conditions and with a typical Western diet.



Omega-3 to omega-6 ratios

Most people in the Western world generally consume far too many omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and not enough omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Some Western diets contain 20 parts of omega-6 fatty acids to only one of omega-3 fatty acids, whereas the ideal ratio would be between 1:1 and 4:1. With the omega-3 and omega-6 soft gels, the balance and ratio are achieved perfectly.



The Mediiterranean diet and greater life expectancy

Numerous studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet, which contains large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids such as those in olive oil, fruits rich in antioxidants, vegetables and herbs, is associated with cardiovascular health and a longer lifespan.Mega EPA/DHA can help achieve optimum levels of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are frequently insufficient in those who have a Western diet. In short, these healthy supplements can improve your chances of living longer.
