The less saturation of a fatty acid the higher the melting point of the compound and is thus less likely to be liquid at room temperature. This review is an overview of sources of omega 3 fatty acids, conversion interfering factors for ALA to EPA and DHA, along with epidemiological and treatment studies suggesting that deficits in dietary-based omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids may make an aetiological contribution to mood disorders and that supplementation with omega 3 fatty acids may provide a therapeutic strategy in major .

During conditions of fasting, prolonged starvation or diabetes the brain can use fatty acid (FA) oxidation to support its energetic by: The brain and the nervous system are the tissues with high content of two polyunsaturated fatty acids: arachidonic acid (, omega-6, AA) and DHA, this last fatty acid being the most important omega-3 long-chain fatty acid in the brain phospholipids, comprising 25% of the total fatty acids of Cited by: 3. The EFAs, particularly the omega-3 fatty acids, are important for brain development during both the fetal and postnatal period. Dietary decosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is needed for the optimum functional maturation of the retina and visual cortex, with visual acuity and mental development seemingly improved by extra by:
Stimulation of fatty acid biosynthesis by dietary cholesterol and of cholesterol synthesis by dietary fatty acid February Journal of Lipid Research 35(2) The brain is composed of nearly 60% fat, with lipids and fatty acids playing important roles in brain function, which here we observe as a clear marker for the distinction between brain and eye. The possibility that the NE or 5-HT effects involve the oxidative metabolism of the monoamines by MAO was also investigated.
