Lipids: Nutrition and Health
Lipids play diverse roles in the normal functioning of the body. They serve as the structural building material of all cell membranes and organelles. They provide energy for living organisms - providing more than twice the energy content compared with carbohydrates and proteins on a weight basis. They function as molecular messengers and signalling molecules in the body.
Lipids are also biomarkers of disease and are involved in several pathological conditions. Lipids are also known to play a role in genetic modification and inﬂuence risk of chronic disease.
Some of the fatty acids need to be taken in diet. This includes essential fatty acids (EFAs), linoleic acid (LA, an omega-6 fatty acid, 18:2n-6), and a-linolenic acid (LNA, an omega-3 fatty acid, 18:3n-3). These help in formation of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) used in cellular structures and as precursors for the biosynthesis of many of the body’s regulatory molecules like long-chain PUFAs, arachidonic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5n-3), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6n-3) and eicosanoids. DHA again is necessary for normal neural and retinal development in the infant and young child.
