Toning cell membranes There are two essential fatty acids:
linoleic acid and linolenic acid.
From these two fatty acids, the organization can synthesize all the other fatty acids, including those that are directly involved in the production of prostaglandins.
Prostaglandins are substances whose action is similar to that of hormones.

Two long-chain fatty acids of Omega-3, EPA and DHA are participating in a direct way to the training of prostaglandins.
These fatty acids are found in particular in fish oil, especially cod liver oil.
