Why are Omega-3 fatty acids important for athletes?

Omega-3 fatty acids are very important for the human body. Together with Omega-6 fatty acids, they are called "essential" fatty acids because they cannot be biosynthesized by the body, but they have to be introduced with foods. In addition to being one of the main constituents of cell membrane, these essential fatty acids have a key role in several body tissues. In particular, Omega-3 fatty acids are known for their anti-inflammatory effect, for their ability to decrease the amount of triglycerides and to improve the immune system. Omega-3 fatty acids are also very useful for athletes: they have a role in prostaglandin synthesis, which in turn, are involved in hormone synthesis, immune system and cardiovascular health. Basically these "good fats" are able to make the body work correctly.
