The brain is one of the organs with high levels of lipids (fats), brain fats, fatty acids formed by, participating in the structure of cell membranes. 50% of the fatty acids are a polyunsaturated gray matter, one third is from the family of omega-3 and its origin lies in our daily diet. Omega 3 and Omega 6 acids in our diet are stored in the cell membranes. It should be noted that on the cardiovascular level, the actions of Omega 3 are benign but not the excess of Omega 6.
The Omega 3 is the precursor for the development of DHA that it needs to generate fetuses for brain development, as well as during the first years of childhood. Omega 3 fatty acids include "alphalinolenic" and its derivatives the "Eicosapentanoic" (EPA) and "Docosahexaenoic" (DHA) fatty acids. The most important Omega-6 fatty acid is ARA, arachidonic acid (ARA). DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is the predominant fatty acid in the structure of the brain and retina, it represents approximately 40% of polyunsaturated fatty acids of the brain and 60% of our eyes, it is made from DHA Phospholipids cell membranes, which is their final location, where they have the most metabolic functions.
