Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are the es­sen­tial fatty acids. As th­ese fatty acids can­not be made by the body, they have to be con­sumed through diet. Omega 6 fatty acids are avail­able in the veg­etable cook­ing oils, and Omega 3 fatty acids are present in non-veg­e­tar­ian sources, in­clud­ing sh and egg to some ex­tent. With re­gard to the veg­e­tar­ian sources, Omega 3 is present in chia seeds, ax seeds, pump­kin seeds, sunower, al­monds and wal­nuts. Omega 3 fatty acids are anti-inam­ma­tory, which re­duce bad choles­terol, im­prove skin tex­ture, ef­fec­tive in con­trol­ling Type 2 di­a­betes, and im­prove hair loss and dry, brit­tle hair. It also helps in im­prov­ing the brain func­tion­ing. Hence, it is said that eat­ing soaked al­monds helps in sharp­en­ing the brain.
