While Omega-3 [(n-3)] fatty acids have been linked to healthy aging throughout life, these essential fats are especially important for children, as they play an important role in growth and development and are associated with numerous health benefits. The functions of the human immune system depend on the intake of micronutrients, which can act as antioxidants. Recent clinical trials have found that antioxidant supplementation can significantly improve certain immune responses. The harmful activities of free radicals are associated with damage to membranes, enzymes, and DNA. The ability of antioxidants to destroy free radicals protects the structural integrity of cells and tissues. One study found that n-3 PUFAs enhanced mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation and antioxidant capacity in humans. Scientific research also found that omega-3 fatty acids may enhance brain health, promote better sleep, and improve ADHD and asthma symptoms. Like omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. These fats are primarily used for energy. Consuming omega-9, a monounsaturated fatty acid, instead of other types of fat may have a number of beneficial health effects. One large study found that high-monounsaturated fat diets could reduce plasma triglycerides and “bad” very-low-density-lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol by in patients with diabetes. The same study found that humans who ate high-monounsaturated fat diets had less inflammation and better blood sugar regulating hormone sensitivity than those who ate diets high in saturated fat.
