What are Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)?
These are a group of unsaturated fatty acids that are essential for growth and body function. EFA activity requires three polyunsaturated fatty acids (linolenic, linoleic and arachidonic). The most essential are linoleic and arachidonic, which are closely involved in metabolism, transport of fats and maintenance of cell membranes. While linolenic and arachidonic acids can be synthesised by the body, linoleic cannot.
There are two types of essential fatty acids – Omega 6 fatty acids and Omega 3 fatty acids. Most people get adequate amounts of Omega 6 fatty acids through their diet, but not enough Omega 3. Over the past 50 years, the consumption of Omega 3 fatty acids has significantly declined in the West.
Essential fatty acids are needed for normal growth and development of children (this beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2 g of ALA and a daily intake of 10g of LA) – click here for EFSA scientific opinion.
Omega 3 oils are generally found in fatty fish, deep green vegetables and some grains and seeds. They contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is metabolised into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the body. DHA is found in high concentration in the grey matter of the brain and the retina of the eye, and is instrumental in the function of brain cell membranes (which are in turn important for the transmission of brain signals).
Unlike Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, Omega 9 fatty acids are not classed as EFAs. This is because they can be manufactured by the human body from unsaturated fat and are therefore not “essential” in the diet. Having said that, vegans, vegetarians, semi-vegetarians and others with restricted diets (for whatever reason) may require greater dietary input.
