For example, essential fatty acids that are not produced by our body provide energy, transport and help absorb fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K. They have a protective function as they form a layer around organs such as the heart  and the kidney and serve to produce hormones and other substances. In addition, they allow flavoring food.
