Essential Fatty Acids
Essential fatty acids are those fatty acids that the body cannot synthesize (i.e. produce) itself. Therefore, they urgently need to be ingested in sufficient quantities through food like vitamins, minerals etc.. Probably the best known unsaturated and essential fatty acids are omega-6 (linolenic acid) and omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid), but omega-9 fatty acid is also becoming increasingly popular, as they generally increase health and well-being.
You may notice a lack of fatty acids in dry skin, brittle fingernails or dandruff. But also psychological problems, reduced vision, headaches and fatigue can occur. Increased symptoms of allergies, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), arthritis, eczema as well as a change in appetite, joint and muscle pain or difficulty concentrating are also frequently reported.

Omega-3 and Omega-6: essential fatty acids
Both linoleic acid (also linolenic acid; omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (also alpha-linolenic acid; omega-3) belong to the essential fatty acids that the body cannot produce itself. Yet they are essential for life, as they are jointly responsible for a large number of processes in the organism. In particular, they are needed for the formation of cell membranes. If there is a deficiency, this can be seen in skin problems, hair loss, infections, a poor immune system, vision problems, depression, concentration difficulties and much more.
In addition to Omega-3 and Omega-6 supplements also cod liver oil and other essential fatty acids!
