Omega 9

Omega-9 fatty acids are fatty acids stored in your body fat. Your body has a little omega-3, more omega-6 and lots of omega-9. Your fat cells make omega-9 fat from the fatty acids your body doesn't consume as energy.

Because omega-9 fatty acids have been shown to increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol and decrease LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, they help eliminate plaque build- up in the arteries, which causes heart disease.
