This fatty acid is an important substance that sustains the evolution of the human brain. It has the functions of enhancing intelligence, improving memory, ensuring vision, suppressing blood pressure, improving sleep, preventing myocardial infarction and cerebral embolism, lowering blood lipids and promoting insulin secretion, and also prolonging hypoglycemic effect. Effects, inhibition of physiological functions such as complications.

The terminal of alpha-linolenic acid metabolism in the body will form eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are recognized health foods.
