Answer in Brief

Give three uses of fatty acids.

Advertisements

Solution

  1. After being digested by the body and transferred to the cells, fatty acids are absorbed into the blood and are crucial for an individual's overall health.
  2. They generate a variety of hormones, including progesterone and testosterone.
  3. Fatty acids also make up the axonal coverings that surround the neurons.
Concept: Formation of ATP
