The author has come to a conclusion that essential fatty acids are important part in organism. Essential fatty acids are the building blocks for all the other fats in our body. The essential fatty acids are linoleic and alpha–linolenic acids.
Alpha–linolenic acid more is called to an omega 3 fatty acid. In large amounts it is found in flaxseeds, also in canola, hempseeds, nuts, pumpkin seeds, spinach, salmons, and others. Research has shown that omega–3 is found in a more stable form in vegetables, fruits and beans not in fish.
Linoleic acid is called as an omega–6 fatty acid. It is found in safflower oil, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, hempseeds, olives, borage oil, black currant seed oil, primrose oil, chicken, and others.
Whereas all materials about this theme were gathered only from internet, this paper may not seem reliable but actually books about essential fatty acids are very rare. However, the aim was just to tell these paper readers what actually they are, why people organism needs them and where they are found.
