Biosynthesis of Omega 3fatty Acids and the Activation of Anticancerous Effect in Human

Dr. Y. Thangam [11] | B. Ranchitha


Abstract: Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function, as well as normal growth and development. They have also become popular because they may reduce the risk of heart disease. Fish contain unsaturated fatty acids, which, when substituted for saturated fatty acids such as those in meat, may lower cholesterol. The main beneficial nutrient appears to be omega-3 fatty acids in fatty fish. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of unsaturated fatty acid that may reduce inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation in the body can damage the blood vessels and lead to heart disease. Patients taking more than 3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids from capsules should do so only under a physicians care. High intakes could cause excessive bleeding in some people. However, more recent research suggests that other nutrients in fish or a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and other nutrients in fish may actually be responsible for the health benefits and the prevention of diseases like Coronary heart disease, Atherosclerosis, Rheumatic arthritis, Cancer diagnosis, Breast cancer, and Cardio vascular diseases.
