Omega-3 fatty acids (omega-3s) are a kind of fat that are found both in the human body and in foods, especially seafood and shellfish. The types of omega-3s found in the body differ. The most abundant in the brain is called Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). This type of omega-3 is important for brain and eye development and function throughout life. It is also beneficial for heart health. Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) is another type of omega-3 fatty acid that is important for overall health, but unlike DHA, the body does not store EPA in large amounts.

Like omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omega-6 is also an essential nutrient, meaning it must be obtained from supplements or diet. This kind of fatty acid is primarily used for energy, the most common omega-6 is linoleic acid, which can be converted into arachidonic acid (ARA); an important chemical in the immune system. Unlike omegas 3 and 6, omega-9 fatty acids are monosaturated fatty acids. They are not an essential nutrient but that only means they can be produce by the body. Studies have shown that omega-9s can reduce inflammation within the body, increase blood sugar-regulating hormone sensitivity, and reduce bad forms of cholesterol.

Omega-3 fatty acids are among the most studied nutrients. Supplements have been shown to significantly reduce blood triglycerides. These are also a type a fat that are found within the blood but high levels of may raise the risk of coronary artery disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22113870

Omega-3s importance for brain health, especially DHA, is why they may benefit individuals with psychological and psychiatric conditions. They have also been shown to possibly reduce the risk of developing certain kinds of cancers. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15570047/

Like omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omega-6 is also an essential nutrient, meaning it must be obtained from supplements or diet. This kind of fatty acid is primarily used for energy, the most common omega-6 is linoleic acid, which can be converted into arachidonic acid (ARA). https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21366864

ARA is used to produce eicosanoids, a kind of signaling molecule, which can have negative side effects due to ARA being pro-inflammatory. Though they are pro-inflammatory they are still important chemicals in the immune system. However, when too many of them are made, they can increase inflammation. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21366864, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25149823

Though omega-6 is essential and important, most diets in the Western world contain exceeding levels of omega-6 fatty acids. It is therefore recommended that a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is 4:1 or less. Western diets have a ratio between 10:1 and 50:1. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18408140

Unlike omegas 3 and 6, omega-9 fatty acids are monosaturated fatty acids. They are not an essential nutrient but that only means they can be produce by the body. The most common omega-9 fatty acid is called Oleic acid. Diets that replace saturated fats with omega-9 have been shown to decrease inflammation and increase blood sugar-regulating hormone sensitivity. A large study found that high-monosaturated could reduce plasma triglycerides and “bad” very-low-density-protein cholesterol in patients with diabetes. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25626736, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9497173
