Natural copepods are superior to enriched artemia nauplii as feed for halibut larvae (Hippoglossus hippoglossus) in terms of survival, pigmentation and retinal morphology: relation to dietary essential fatty acids. (1/446)

Replicate groups of halibut larvae were fed to d 71 post-first feeding (PFF) either the marine copepod, Eurytemora velox, or Artemia nauplii doubly enriched with the marine chromist or golden algae, Schizochytrium sp., (Algamac 2000) and a commercial oil emulsion (SuperSelco). The fatty acid compositions of eyes, brains and livers from larvae fed the two diets were measured, and indices of growth, eye migration and skin pigmentation were recorded along with histological examinations of eye and liver. The docosahexaenoic acid [22:6(n-3); DHA]/eicosapentaenoic acid [20:5(n-3); EPA] ratios in Artemia nauplii enriched with the SuperSelco and Algamac 2000 were 0.4 and 1.0, respectively. The E. velox copepods were divided into two size ranges (125-250 and 250-400 microm) with the smaller size range containing the highest level of (n-3) highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA). The DHA/EPA ratios for the two size ranges of copepods were 2.0 and 0.9, respectively. The total lipids of eyes, brains and livers of larvae fed copepods had higher levels of DHA and lower levels of EPA than those of larvae fed enriched Artemia. The percentage of survival of the halibut larvae was significantly higher when copepods rather than enriched Artemia nauplii were fed, but larval specific growth rates did not differ. The indices of eye migration were high and not significantly different in larvae fed the two diets, but the percentage of larvae undergoing successful metamorphosis (complete eye migration and dorsal pigmentation) was higher in larvae fed copepods (40%) than in larvae fed enriched Artemia (4%). The rod/cone ratios in histological sections of the retina were 2.5 +/- 0.7 in larvae fed copepods and 1.3 +/- 0.6 in larvae fed enriched Artemia (P < 0.01). Histological examination of the livers and intestines of the larvae were consistent with better assimilation of lipid from copepods than lipid from Artemia nauplii up to 46 d post-first feeding. Thus, marine copepods are superior to enriched Artemia as food for halibut larvae in terms of survival, eye development and pigmentation, and this superiority can be related to the level of DHA in the feed.  (+info)

Differences in essential fatty acid requirements by enteral and parenteral routes of administration in patients with fat malabsorption. (2/446)

BACKGROUND: Essential fatty acid (EFA) requirements of patients receiving home parenteral nutrition (HPN) are uncertain. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to evaluate the influence of the route of administration (enteral compared with parenteral) on plasma phospholipid EFA concentrations. DESIGN: Intestinal absorption, parenteral supplement of EFAs, and plasma phospholipid EFA concentrations were investigated in balance studies in 4 groups (A, B, C, and D) of 10 patients with short-bowel syndrome and a fecal loss of >2000 kJ/d. Groups A (fat malabsorption <50%) and B (fat malabsorption >50%) did not receive HPN, whereas group C received HPN containing lipids (7.5 and 1.2 g/d linoleic and linolenic acids, respectively) and group D received fat-free HPN. RESULTS: Intestinal absorption of linoleic and linolenic acids was 8.9 and 1.3 g/d and 2. 6 and 0.4 g/d in groups A and B, respectively, whereas EFA absorption was negligible in groups C and D. Thus, intestinal absorption of EFAs in group A corresponded to parenteral EFA supplements in group C, whereas group D was almost totally deprived of EFAs. The median plasma phospholipid concentration of linoleic acid decreased by 21.9%, >16.3%, >13.8%, 11.0%, and >7.7% and linolenic acid by 0.3%, 0.2%, 0.2%, >0.2%, and 0.1%, respectively, in 10 healthy control subjects and groups A, B, C, and D (P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Intestinally absorbed EFAs maintained plasma EFA status better than did an equal quantity of parenterally supplied EFAs. Intravenous requirements of EFAs in patients with negligible absorption of EFAs are probably higher than the amounts recommended to patients with preserved intestinal absorption of EFAs.  (+info)

Lipoprotein(a), essential fatty acid status and lipoprotein lipids in female Australian vegetarians. (3/446)

In the present study we investigated serum lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] levels, plasma lipids, the serum phospholipid polyunsaturated fatty acid profile and correlates of serum Lp(a) in healthy free-living female vegetarians (n=50) and omnivores (n=24) to assess differences which may have implications for cardiovascular risk. Dietary saturated fat and total plasma cholesterol were significantly lower in the vegetarians compared with omnivores. The mean serum Lp(a) concentration was lower in the vegetarians (171 mg/l) than in the omnivores (247 mg/l). The serum Lp(a) concentration was significantly negatively correlated with carbohydrate intake (as % of energy), and positively correlated with plasma total cholesterol. Compared with the omnivores, the vegetarians had significantly lower concentrations of 20:3,n-6, 20:4,n-6, 22:5,n-6, 20:5,n-3, 22:6,n-3 and total n-6 and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and a lower n-3/n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid ratio, in serum phospholipids. Lower concentrations of plasma total cholesterol, serum phospholipid total fatty acids, total saturated fatty acids and arachidonic acid, and a tendency towards a lower serum Lp(a) concentration, in vegetarians may have beneficial effects on cardiovascular disease risk. However, the decreased concentration of serum phospholipid n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids may potentially promote thrombotic risk. Based on the present data, it would seem appropriate for omnivores to reduce their dietary intake of total fat and saturated fat in order to decrease their plasma cholesterol, and vegetarians should perhaps increase their dietary intake of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and thus improve the balance of n-3/n-6, in order to reduce any thrombotic tendency that might increase their generally low risk of cardiovascular disease.  (+info)

The impairment of essential fatty acid metabolism as a key factor in doxorubicin-induced damage in cultured rat cardiomyocytes. (4/446)

The clinical use of the antitumoral doxorubicin (DOX) is limited by its cardiotoxicity, which is mediated through different mechanisms. The membrane lipid peroxidation induced by DOX may cause disruption of the unsaturated fatty acyl chains; in the endoplasmic reticulum, containing the system catalyzing the desaturation/elongation of fatty acids, DOX could interfere with the metabolism of linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids. Using primary cultures of neonatal rat cardiomyocytes we demonstrated that the exposure to different concentrations of DOX (10(-5) and 10(-7) M) for 24 h caused an increase in the production of conjugated dienes, an impairment in the desaturation/elongation of essential fatty acids, and a reduction in the cellular content of highly unsaturated fatty acids. Conversely, 1 h exposure to 10(-5) M DOX was sufficient to induce alterations in the desaturation/elongation of linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids, but did not cause either formation of conjugated dienes or modification of the fatty acyl pattern. Therefore, DOX has a dual negative effect, depending on its concentration and on the time of exposure, one directed against the membrane highly unsaturated fatty acids, the other against the system which is required for the synthesis of these fatty acids themselves. These two effects synergically act in causing heart cell damage.  (+info)

Essential fatty acid requirements of vegetarians in pregnancy, lactation, and infancy. (5/446)

Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) derived from linoleic (18:2n-6) and alpha-linolenic (18:3n-3) acids are required for the normal development of the retina and central nervous system, but the extent to which they can be synthesized from the parent fatty acids is debated. Consuming LCPUFAs markedly increases their proportions in tissue lipids compared with their parent fatty acids. Thus, it has been argued that LCPUFAs must be supplied in the diet. LCPUFAs are generally absent from plant foods, thus it is important find out how essential fatty acid requirements are met by vegetarians. A developing fetus obtains LCPUFAs via selective uptake from its mother's plasma and LCPUFAs are present in the breast milk of vegetarians. There is no evidence that the capacity to synthesize LCPUFAs is limited in vegetarians. However, there are greater proportions of n-6 LCPUFAs and lower proportions of n-3 LCPUFAs in vegetarians compared with omnivores. This difference is probably a consequence of the selection of foods by vegetarians with high amounts of linoleic acid. Although lower concentrations of docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3; DHA) have been observed in blood and artery phospholipids of infants of vegetarians, it is uncertain whether their brain lipids contain lower proportions of DHA than do those of infants of omnivores. On the basis of experiments in primates that showed altered visual function with a high ratio of linoleic acid to alpha-linolenic acid, it would be prudent to recommend diets with a ratio between 4:1 and 10:1 in vegetarians and that excessive intakes of linoleic acid be avoided.  (+info)

Neonatal dietary zinc deficiency in artificially reared rat pups retards behavioral development and interacts with essential fatty acid deficiency to alter liver and brain fatty acid composition. (6/446)

The objective of this study was to investigate whether short-term zinc deficiency in the early neonatal period would exacerbate the effects of essential fatty acid (EFA) deficiency on liver and brain long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid (LCPUFA) composition, as well as on behavioral development in artificially reared rat pups. Using a 2 x 2 factorial design, male Long-Evans rat pups were reared artificially from postnatal d 5 to 16; pups were fed through gastrostomy tubes with rat formula deficient in zinc and/or EFA. As expected, EFA deficiency significantly reduced levels of arachidonic acid [AA, 20:4(n-6)] and docosahexanoic acid [DHA, 22:6(n-3)] in liver phosphatidylcholine (PC) and brain phosphaditylethanolamine (PE), and increased 22:5(n-6) levels in liver and brain PC and PE. There were significant interactions between zinc and EFA in liver such that zinc deficiency reduced AA and DHA in the EFA-adequate groups, but significantly increased AA in the EFA-deficient groups. Contrary to the hypothesis, short-term zinc deficiency did not exacerbate the effects of EFA deficiency in liver phospholipids. In brain PE, a significant interaction between EFA and zinc was observed such that zinc deficiency increased 22:5(n-6) concentrations in EFA-adequate but not in EFA-deficient groups. Regardless of their EFA status, zinc-deficient rats were growth retarded and demonstrated deficits in locomotor skills. Possible effects of long-term zinc and EFA deficiency on brain function should be investigated in future studies.  (+info)

Fatty acids specifically related to the anisotropic properties of plasma membrane from rat urothelium. (7/446)

Four different luminal surfaces of rat urothelium differing in their fatty acid composition were prepared by dietary induction. In order to induce lipid changes, each of four groups of rat received a basal diet rich in one of the unsaturated n-3, n-6 or n-9 fatty acid families and a commercial (control) diet. The effects of the dietary regime on the fatty acid composition of luminal urothelial membranes and their relation to the mobility of fluorescent probes were studied. In comparison with the control diet membrane, all three fatty acid-rich diets induced a decrease of the percentage amount of saturated fatty acid while that of the unsaturated fatty acids was increased. Accordingly, all three diets increased the unsaturation index in comparison with the control diet. The anisotropy across each membrane fraction was assessed using the n-(9-anthroyloxy) fatty acid fluorescent probes 3-AS, 7-AS and 12-AS, which locate at different depths in the membrane. Two different anisotropy profiles were observed. One profile showed the highest anisotropy at the C7 depth, whereas the other exhibited a continuous decrease of the anisotropy from the surface to the center of the bilayer. The molecular properties (isomerization) of 18:2n-9 fatty acid may account, at least in part, for the observed V-shaped profile (the ascending trend) of the membrane anisotropy values as a function of the respective 18:2n-9 fatty acid contents. Nevertheless, the minimum value of the profile did not correspond to the minimum 18:2n-9 fatty acid content, but rather to the higher amount of docosahexaenoic (22:6n-3) fatty acid. Thus, a modulating role of the 22:6n-3 fatty acid on the rigidifying effect of 18:2n-9 fatty acid is suggested, possibly mediated by relationships between fatty acid composition, saturated and unsaturated chain lengths, and freedom of motion of the phospholipid acyl chains.  (+info)

Importance of n-3 fatty acids in health and disease. (8/446)

In the past 2 decades, views about dietary n-3 fatty acids have moved from speculation about their functions to solid evidence that they are not only essential nutrients but also may favorably modulate many diseases. Docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3), which is a vital component of the phospholipids of cellular membranes, especially in the brain and retina, is necessary for their proper functioning. n-3 Fatty acids favorably affect atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, inflammatory disease, and perhaps even behavioral disorders. The 38 articles in this supplement document the importance of n-3 fatty acids in both health and disease.  (+info)

The effects on humans of the ω-3 (omega-3) and ω-6 (omega-6) essential fatty acids (EFAs) are best characterized by their interactions; they cannot be understood separately. Arachidonic acid (AA) is a 20-carbon ω-6 conditionally essential fatty acid. It sits at the head of the arachidonic acid cascade - more than 20 different signalling paths that control a wide array of bodily functions, but especially those functions involving inflammation, cell growth and the central nervous system. Most AA in the human body derives from dietary linoleic acid (another essential fatty acid, 18:2 ω-6), which is derived from nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and animal fats. In the inflammatory response, two other groups of dietary essential fatty acids form cascades that parallel and compete with the arachidonic acid cascade. EPA (20:5 ω-3) provides the most important competing cascade. It is ingested from oily fish, and algae oil or derived from dietary alpha-linolenic acid found in, for instance, walnuts, ...

the body eats foods containing these nutrients.. In days past when there were better agricultural and livestock feeding practices, our foods were higher in these essential fatty acids.

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS (EFA, vitamin F) Two fatty acids that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be provided by the diet. The essential fatty acids LINOLEIC ACID and ALPHA LINOLENIC ACID are polyunsaturated FATTY ACIDS, that is, they possess two or more double bonds and lack several hydrogen atoms found in saturated fatty acids. They differ in their location of double bonds, that is, bonds between carbon atoms that are deficient in hydrogen atoms. This small chemical difference has a huge nutritional impact. Linoleic acid contains 18 carbon atoms and belongs to the omega-6 family of fatty acids, in which the first double bond occurs at the sixth carbon atom of the molecular chain. Linoleic acid serves as the parent of a large polyunsaturated fatty acid, called ARACHIDONIC ACID. Arachidonic acid in turn forms PROSTAGLANDINS (PGE2) and thromboxanes (TXA,), hormone-like lipids that tend to promote blood clotting, induce pain and inflammation and cause smooth muscle contraction.

By now most of the public has come to appreciate the health promoting benefits of obtaining adequate amounts of the omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs). Many also understand that our health is well served by maintaining an appropriate balance in our diet between the anti-inflammatory omega-3 EFAs, and the generally pro-inflammatory omega-6 EFAs. That balance often depends on reducing the intake of sources of omega-6 EFAs (especially reducing the consumption of processed and refined grains, fast foods, and polyunsaturated vegetable oils) and increasing the intake of omega-3 EFAs.. You may be surprised, then, to learn that my instructions for optimal intake of the EFAs often includes an omega-6 EFA. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an anti-inflammatory member of the often maligned, but truly necessary, family of EFAs (see recent blog entry Put out the fire). GLA demonstrates anti-inflammatory, and possibly hormone balancing qualities. It may also be useful for promoting healthy skin, hair and ...

Other studies suggest that many of us have a very poor ability to convert the short-chain omega-3 fats such as ALA into the long-chain omega-3s. This may apply particularly to those with an ancestral heritage in which fish has been a large component of the diet for many generations and thus there has been a genetic adaptation to these fats in the diet. Since EPA and DHA were in abundance in the diet it is possible that these genetic types may have lost the ability to produce their own effectively.. In one study when 1000 mg of ALA was consumed, only 27 mg of long-chain omega-3 fats were produced. The implication of this is that even if you are consuming the recommended daily intake of ALA, your body may only be producing around 1 or 2% of your daily requirement for EPA and DHA.. This knowledge has prompted some nutrition experts to state that it is impossible for those eating a vegan diet to get enough EPA and DHA. So does this mean that a vegan must eat fish or take fish oil capsules or ...

Oils contain a large variety of fatty acids, with stearic, oleic, and linoleic acids among the most abundant.2 The fatty acid profile for a certain oil helps to determine the oils characteristics with respect to skin feel, substantivity, occlusive ability, penetration, biologic activity, and stability. Stability is influenced by susceptibility to oxidation: fatty acids with a higher degree of unsaturation are oxidized more easily. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are those that the body cannot synthesize and, therefore, must be obtained topically or in the diet. Vegetable and fish oils contain EFAs such as ω-6 and ω-3 fatty acids. EFAs influence skin barrier function, membrane fluidity, cell signaling, and the inflammatory eicosanoid pathway. Nonessential fatty acids and EFAs play important roles in skin function. ...

  • Did you know that the deficiency of essential fatty acids (EFAs) can make us vulnerable to various complications, including cancer and arthritis? (
  • Fat supplies essential fatty acids (EFAs). (
  • Your body is incapable of producing the EFAs, known as linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, so it must derive them from food," explains Wahida Karmally DrPH, RD, professor of nutrition at Columbia Universityand director of nutrition at The Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. (

  • Among the unsaturated fats, Omega-3s , which are known as 'essential fatty acids' or EFAs , are one of the most beneficial. (
  • Researchers have known about the essential functions of Omega-3s and other EFAs since the 1930s, but it's only been over the last 30 years or so that awareness of their true potential has begun to develop. (
  • Essential fatty acids (EFAs) is a term referring to the PUFAs animal body needs but cannot produce (or convert from other fats), so they must be obtained from diet. (
  • Her fat-free diet was extremely low in essential fatty acids (EFAs). (
  • That is why nutritionists call omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs "essential" fatty acids. (
  • EFAs omega-3 and omega-6 as well as "non-essential" omega-9 are considered the "good fats" and are currently a very hot research topic that has been featured prominently on the news and online discussions. (
  • Similar to Omega-3s, omega-6 EFAs are polyunsaturated fats, essential for human health because the body cannot manufacture it. (
  • Omega-9 EFAs can be used by the body as a substitute for omega-3s or 6s if these essential fats are not present. (
  • By now most of the public has come to appreciate the health promoting benefits of obtaining adequate amounts of the omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs). (
  • Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an anti-inflammatory member of the often maligned, but truly necessary, family of EFAs (see recent blog entry Put out the fire ). (

(
  • The EFAs, essential components of the diet that are not synthesized in the body, are ubiquitous in immune and anti-inflammatory response mechanisms and in oxidative cell injury defense. (
  • noting such injury involves 'predominately and selectively' the neuronal membrane phospholipids that are highly enriched in EFAs, particularly arachidonic acid [AA] and DHA, which are most sensitive to free radical-mediated peroxidation. (
  • Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) play an important role in muscle building and fat loss. (
  • These fats are called Essential Fatty Acids or EFAs for short. (
  • Omega 9 fatty acids are necessary but are considered "non essential" because the body can manufacture modest amounts of them provided there are enough EFAs present. (
  • Our bodies can't create essential fatty acids (EFAs) - also known as 'good fats' - so it's important that we have them in our diet. (
  • It has taken decades to establish essential fatty acids (EFAs), particularly omega 3's, as a reputable nutritional category, and only now are they starting to get the attention they rightfully deserve. (
  • Put simply, EFAs are essential to human health because they cannot be manufactured in the body, so it is imperative that they be consumed through the diet. (
  • Recent research indicates that feeding horses essential fatty acids (EFAs) can support their skin and hooves, as well as the brain, joints, and digestive, reproductive and pulmonary systems. (
  • Horses on pasture eat living plants that contain fatty acids as part of their cell wall structure, as well as seed heads of grasses and other grains that also contain large amounts of EFAs. (
  • Unfortunately, typical equine diets lack EFAs because grains are processed and hay is dried, thereby damaging their natural fatty acid content. (
  • Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are fats that must be supplied in the diet because the body cannot produce them. (
  • Despite the fact that the AAFCO still does not recognize EFAs as essential nutrients, more and more manufacturers include them in their products and of course proudly advertise the fact. (
  • When it comes to eating healthy, you have probably heard a lot about Essential Fatty Acids…EFAs…or Omega 3s and Omega 6s. (
  • We just said that EFAs consist of long chain of carbon and hydrogen atoms with a carboxylic acid group at the end. (
  • EFAs are a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) that cannot be synthesized in our bodies and must therefore be obtained from the diet. (
  • There are two classes of EFAs: omega-6 (n-6) and omega-3 (n-3) fatty acids. (
  • Essential fatty acids, or EFAs, are fatty acids that cannot be constructed within an organism from other components, generally all references are to humans, as there are no known biochemical pathways capable of producing them. (
  • Omega fatty acids, also known as essential fatty acids (EFAs), are the healthy or "good" fats we all need to support normal function of all tissues in the body. (
  • Although the body can produce some fats, it cannot make two important EFAs: omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. (
  • Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are key strategic ingredients currently being considered by several food and beverage companies possessing functional foods programs. (
  • The key members of the omega 3 family of EFAs are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). (
  • These two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs). (
  • Udo`s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is a unique blend of organic cold pressed seeds - delivering essential fatty acids (EFAs) Omega 3,6 & 9 in a 2:1:1* ratio pioneered by Udo Erasmus for optimum health. (
  • Some of the damaging effects on the body are postulated to be related to the deficiency of essential fatty acids (EFAs) which may occur during stress due to inhibition of enzymes involved in formation of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are essential for the normal functioning of each and every organ. (
  • Arachidonic acid (AA) is present in meat and animal products. (
  • Arachidonic acid (AA) is a 20-carbon ω-6 conditionally essential fatty acid. (
  • It sits at the head of the "arachidonic acid cascade" - more than 20 different signalling paths that control a wide array of bodily functions, but especially those functions involving inflammation, cell growth and the central nervous system. (
  • In the inflammatory response, two other groups of dietary essential fatty acids form cascades that parallel and compete with the arachidonic acid cascade. (
  • In the arachidonic acid cascade, dietary linoleic acid (18:2 ω-6) is desaturated and lengthened to form arachidonic acid, esterified into a phospholipid in the cell membrane. (
  • Arachidonic acid, with two such positively changed carbons, has this character of essential fatty acids markedly increased. (
  • The relationship between the character of essential fatty acid and intermediary positive carbon is further confirmed by the fact that arachidonic acid, with two positive and one negative intermediary carbons, is also a more active essential fatty acid than linoleic and linolenic acids, each of which has only one positive intermediary carbon. (
  • Perhaps the most crucial effect is preventing arachidonic acid (AA) from being released by cells. (
  • As said eariler, Series 2 PG's are made from arachidonic acid. (
  • The conditionally essential fatty acids include gamma-linolenic acid, arachidonic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid. (
  • Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA) are important components of neural membrane phospholipids. (
  • Basselin M, Chang L, Seemann R, Bell JM, Rapoport SI (2005) Chronic lithium administration to rats selectively modifies 5-HT2A/2C receptor-mediated brain signaling via arachidonic acid. (
  • Arachidonic acid, an important omega-6 fatty acid, is used to synthesize pro-inflammatory prostaglandins. (
  • Good examples of polyunsaturated fatty acids are linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids and they are known as essential fatty acids since they are required by the body, yet cannot be manufactured by the body, but can in some instances be synthesized by other nutrients. (
  • 5,8,11-Eicosatrienoic acid (20∶3n−9) accumulated in cellular phospholipids, and arachidonic acid (20∶4) decreased. (
  • The EFAD was rapidly reversed by the addition of as little as 10 μM linoleic or arachidonic acid to the medium. (
  • In order to study the role played by the fetoplacental unit in providing the human fetus with arachidonic acid, delta 5- and delta 6-desaturase activities were studied in microsomes from human fetal liver and placenta after 18 and 22 weeks of gestation. (
  • As in adult liver, delta 6-desaturation is the rate-limiting step of arachidonic acid synthesis. (
  • Arachidonic acid concentrations were higher in fetal serum than in maternal serum while the opposite was observed for linoleic acid. (
  • The fetal liver microsomal content in arachidonic acid was low. (
  • Taken together the data suggest that arachidonic acid is supplied to the fetus through a preferential transfer across the placenta. (
  • There are three basic types of essential fatty acids: linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and arachidonic acid. (
  • Linoleic acid is the most vital of these because it can be converted to linolenic and arachidonic acid. (
  • DHA/ARA supplement providing 200 mg/day docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from DHASCO®-S oil and 200 mg/day arachidonic acid (ARA) from ARASCO® oil (DSM Nutritional Products). (
  • Recently, we have shown that photorelease of arachidonic acid leads to GPR40 stimulation and subsequent activation of trimeric G-proteins together with [Ca 2+ ] i signaling in MIN6 cells ( 16 ). (
  • There is some conflicting information, however, surrounding another omega 6 fatty acid, arachidonic acid (AA), which in large amounts has been found to trigger excessive inflammation, a root cause of many chronic diseases. (
  • What Is Arachidonic Acid? (
  • Arachidonic acid is a major essential (must have/can't make) omega-6 fatty acid. (
  • Arachidonic acid (AA), found in the body fat of poultry, lean meat, egg yolks and some fish oils. (
  • Arachidonic Acid: The Culprit? (
  • The "culprit" may just turn out to be arachidonic acid (AA), one of the omega-6 fatty acids. (
  • The main omega-6 fatty acid in these foods is linoleic acid (LA). The body converts linoleic acid to gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which then can be broken down into arachidonic acid (AA) and other substances. (
  • The diagnosis is confirmed by decreased levels of linoleic, arachidonic, and eicosatrienoic acids and an eicosatrienoic:arachidonic acid ratio of greater than 0.4 or linoleic:arachidonic acid ratio of greater than 2.3. (
  • Arachidonic acid (AA) tends to be unhealthy because it is the precursor of inflammatory eicosanoids - such as prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane A2, and leukotriene B4 - which promote inflammation. (
  • Sesame lignans not only increase beneficial DGLA but they also impede the conversion of GLA into the proinflammatory mediator arachidonic acid. (
  • DGLA can also be desaturated to arachidonic acid (AA) which is then acylated and incorporated in membrane phospholipids. (
  • Although the human organism normally produces arachidonic acid itself, most (up to 90%) is supplied from food. (
  • Arachidonic acid fulfills an important function in our body, but in excess it promotes the formation of mediators and precipitators of the inflammatory process, especially the "free radicals. (
  • These food groups contain many calories and also inflammation-promoting arachidonic acid. (
  • In contrast, vegetables don't contain arachidonic acid. (
  • Meat and meat products, eaten as sources of protein, can be easily replaced with legumes (chickpeas, linseed, peas) and soy products such as tofu-foods that are rich in protein and free of arachidonic acid. (
  • Fat-rich fish from cold oceans such as herring, mackerel, wild salmon, and eel (no hatchery fish) are an exception among the low arachidonic acid foods. (

  • While getting the adequate amounts of essential fatty acids can promote good health, it's important to get the proper ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fats. (
  • Essential Fatty Acids are oils, omega-3 and omega-6, that you can find, in certain amounts, in all oils that you can purchase in most the health food and regular grocery stores. (
  • Essential fatty acids are necessary to make cell membranes and for many of the important hormones and other chemical messengers that tell your body what to do. (
  • Omega 3 Fatty are necessary for proper formation of cell membranes. (
  • Today, the usual diet in industrial countries contains much less ω-3 fatty acids than the diet of a century ago and a much greater amount of air pollution on a daily basis that evokes the inflammatory response. (
  • For example, high levels of omega-6 fatty acids (relative to omega-3 fatty acids) can raise the risks of chronic diseases with inflammatory component. (
  • In contrast, the metabolites produced from omega-3 fatty acids are less inflammatory and more anti-inflammatory. (
  • It is interesting to note that a Texas a&M University study (titled "alteration in the Inflammatory Response in athletic Horses Fed Diets Containing omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty acids") revealed that crude unrefined soybean oil reduced inflammatory responses in horses. (
  • Balancing fatty acids is all about decreasing intake of the "inflammatory" omega-6 fatty acids versus "anti-inflammatory"omega-3 fatty acids in order to have a better omega-6:omega-3 ratio. (
  • Systemic implications of essential fatty acid deficiency are widespread and include neurological (dementia, poor neurological development), visual, inflammatory, gastrointestinal (elevated hepatic enzymes), hematological (hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia) and endocrine system deficits. (

  • Omega-6 and omega-3 are essential fatty acids that are essential for the healthy functioning of the human body. (
  • EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids that play a vital role in the functioning of the body. (
  • Since our body cannot produce them, we are dependent on foods, which are rich sources of these acids. (
  • The human body cannot synthesize essential fatty acids and depends entirely upon outside sources. (
  • They're essential for the proper functioning of your brain, nerves and cells throughout body. (
  • Essential fats must be consumed through ones diet because the body cannot synthesis them. (
  • Lipase is a digestive enzyme essential in breaking down fats and oils within the body. (
  • Now here's the thing about Omega-3s-because they're essential fatty acids, it means that the body cannot manufacture them. (
  • Because the human body cannot produce linoleic acid, we must get this essential fatty acid from food. (
  • The body needs these fatty acids, but is unable to manufacture them. (
  • Essential fatty acid (EFA), also known as polyunsaturated fat, is not made by the body, so it is essential to get EFA from food. (
  • Essential fatty acids are basically fats that cannot be produced by the human body and must be taken in via diet. (
  • There are a number of functions that these fatty acids perform for the body and this is the reason they are termed essential. (
  • Fish oil and flaxseed oil are the most common choices for essential fatty acids, but these other choices can also provide the omega 3 and omega 6 that the body needs. (

  • It has nothing to do with being essential to your body, it's just a perfumery phrase. (
  • Fats from each of these families are essential, as the body can convert one omega-3 to another omega-3, for example, but cannot create an omega-3 from scratch. (
  • Essential fatty acids are just that - fats that the human body cannot produce so must be taken in from the diet. (
  • All other fatty acids can be synthesized in the body from other fats, making them non-essential. (
  • Omega 3 fatty acids aren't produced naturally in the body, but are needed to maintain a healthy body - and healthy hair. (
  • Some are non-essential, but two are essential, meaning firstly that they cannot be manufactured by the body and hence have to be ingested, and secondly that, once ingested, they fulfill important functions not served by alternative sources. (
  • These fatty acids are called essential because you cannot create them in your body and your cells use them every day. (
  • Essential fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential for the normal functioning of the human body and must be supplied by the diet as the body can not synthesize them. (
  • Stearidonic acid is found in rarer types of seeds and nuts, including black currant seeds. (
  • Like vegetable oils, the types of essential fatty acids you get from nuts and seeds are ALA and LA. Sunflower seeds, pine nuts, pecans and Brazil nuts have 6 to 10 grams of omega-6 in a 1-ounce serving. (

  • Carefully cold-pressed to protect the delicate fatty acids inside the seeds, pale green, certified 100% organic Hemp Seed Oil is high in the Omega 6 essential fatty acid (EFA) linoleic acid. (
  • Without focusing too much on the details, the basic premise of this paper is to refute the current thinking on omega-6 fatty acids and suggest, instead, that 5% to 10% of daily calories (or about 12 to 22 grams a day) should come from omega-6's (remember that that includes most of the vegetables oils, such as corn, sunflower, safflower, and soybean oil, as well as nuts and seeds). (
  • Most of our intake of these essential fatty acids (or EFA's) comes from vegetable oils: soybean, safflower, sesame, and corn oil, as well as from nuts, seeds, and some vegetables. (

  • For instance, ω-3 18:4, or 18:4 ω-3, or 18:4 n−3 indicates stearidonic acid, an 18-carbon chain with 4 double bonds, and with a double bond between the third and fourth carbon atoms from the CH3 end. (
  • Similarly, about half of the amino acids are essential and half are non-essential (or inessential). (
  • When protein is metabolized, it's broken down into amino acids before it can be used by the body's muscles. (
  • Since Omega 3s improve this process, muscles have access to more of the amino acids they need to repair themselves and grow. (

  • Omega-9s are the most abundant fatty acids of all in nature, and they are not in short supply in our diets. (
  • DHA is the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, with EPA being found in only small amounts. (
  • ω-9 fatty acids are not essential in humans because they can be synthesized from carbohydrates or other fatty acids. (
  • However, humans can convert both LA and ALA to fatty acids with longer carbon chains and a larger number of double bonds, by alternative desaturation and chain elongation. (
  • The apicoplast-localized fatty acid synthesis (FAS II) pathway, a metabolic process fundamentally divergent from the analogous FAS I pathway in humans, represents one such target. (
  • Humans can synthesize longer omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids from the essential fatty acids LA and ALA, respectively, through a series of desaturation (addition of a double bond) and elongation (addition of two carbon atoms) reactions. (
