What are Omega-3 fatty acids?

You have surely already heard that there are 'good' and 'bad' fats. Fats which, on the one hand, can cause illness in our affluent society – on the other hand, other fats which are vital for our organism. Few people are aware of the fact that, within the second group of good fats, there are also those who can act as true health-bringers. The latter undoubtedly include the omega-3 fatty acids, which affect important metabolic functions in the human body and, therefore, can aid both the prevention and treatment of several diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer’s, arthritis depression and asthma.
