Benefits of Omega-6 in aging

Our bodies need essential fatty acids for general human health, especially for bones and healthy brain aging. Aside from other fatty acids, our bodies do not naturally produce Omega 6, so food and food alternatives (eg. Ensure Gold). With that said, it can easily be under consumed. Fatty acid’s importance is not only for children, but for seniors who are wishing to keep their independence.2, 7

Strengthens Joints and Bones

People who do not get enough essential fatty acids, especially Omega 6, are more likely to have bone loss. This is especially important for those over the age of 65, where our bones break down faster than being replaced, making them brittle. Omega 6 keeps tissues elastic, stimulates bone material production, and keeps cells resilient. It also reduces some form of inflammation so that you have less pain in joints, swelling, and morning stiffness, which are all possible side effects of aging.2, 3

Healthy Brain Aging

You actually need Omega 3 along with Omega 6 as balance is key for a healthy mind and body. Both works together to help keep your mobility in your advanced years while keeping brain function consistent in terms of memory power. This is important because although most seniors might not develop major neurological conditions, they will have some memory loss as the brain functions become less efficient with aging. Older adults are also prone to depression due to either loss of mobility or loneliness, so a diet rich in Omega 3 & 6 can help balance chemicals in the nervous system.4, 5
