What are fatty acids?
Fatty acids are the most important form of dietary fat. There are two main types of fatty acids, saturated and unsaturated.
What are the essential fatty acids?
The essential fatty acids for humans are Ω3 polyunsaturated, α-linolenic acid and Ω6 polyunsaturated linoleic acid.
A diet rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids can lower blood levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL) without significantly affecting the levels of ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL), thereby helping to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. .
Did you know that … The intake of fatty acids is done exclusively through diet and it should be noted that they are not synthesized in the body!
Spiroulina PLATENSIS contains essential fatty acids γ-Linolenic acid (GLA), α-Linolenic acid (ALA), Linoleic acid (LA)
γ-Linolenic acid (GLA): helps regulate blood pressure, the body’s response to inflammation and cell proliferation. In addition, research has shown that γ-linolenic acid has beneficial effects in the treatment of atopic eczema and premenstrual syndrome, has antibacterial activity, and strengthens the immune system.
α-Linolenic acid (ALA): based on this, the human body synthesizes important Ω3 fatty acids, which play an important role in the development and function of the brain. Research has shown cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as a possible positive effect on the central nervous system.
Linoleic acid (LA): It is used in the biosynthesis of arachidonic acid, having previously been converted to γ-linolenic acid. It is also a fatty acid essential for the skin.
