Lipids: Nutrition and Health

Lipids play a huge role in the normal functioning of the body and act as structural building material of all cell membranes and organelles. They provide energy for all the living organisms and provide almost thrice the energy content as compared to carbohydrates and proteins on a weight basis. They function as molecular messengers in the body. Lipids are also called biomarkers of disease and are involved in several pathological conditions. Some of the fatty acids need to be taken in diet include essential fatty acids (EFAs), linoleic acid (LA), and a-linolenic acid (LNA). DHA again is a daily requirement for normal neural and retinal development for the infants and young children.
