Omega-9, monounsaturated fats are considered nonessential fatty acids because they can be produced by the body from starches and sugars. Oleic Acid is the most common form of omega-9. Omega-9 is present in all animals and plants; excellent sources include olive, canola, peanut, safflower, and sunflower oils. Other great sources are avocados, peanut butter, nuts and seeds. Omega-9 plays a role in lowering cholesterol levels and promotes healthy inflammation responses.Omega-9 may also aid in the production of prostaglandins, which have many great health benefits. Omega-9 should be present in the body in healthy ratios as compared to omega-3 and omega-6.
There are no recorded side effects from the use of omega-9. As omega-9 is typically used in ratio with omega-3 and omega-6, be cautious if using anticoagulants or antiplatelet drugs due to the increased risk of bleeding.
As with all drugs and supplements, consult a health care professional before use. Omega-9 has no reported side effects but as it is used with omega-3 and omega-6, watch triglyceride levels.
