Dietary fats are part of our everyday diet. They belong to a larger group of compounds called lipids. Of these brain lipids, approximately 35% are made up of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which include Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. They are important to brain development and functioning. But because they cannot be made or stored by your body and must be provided by food or supplements, they are called essential fatty acids (EFA).
