Omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids are all important dietary fats. Each one has a number of health benefits for your body.
Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats, a type of fat your body can’t make. Since the human body can’t produce omega-3s, these fats are referred to as “essential fats,” meaning that you have to get them from your diet.
Omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omega-6 fatty acids are also essential, so you need to obtain them from your diet.
These fats are primarily used for energy.
Omega-9 fatty acids are monounsaturated, meaning they only have one double bond.Omega-9 fatty acids aren’t strictly “essential,” meaning they can be produced by the body. In fact, omega-9 fats are the most abundant fats in most cells in the body.
