Major Trouble Ahead If You Don't Fix Omega-3 Fat Deficiency

Major Trouble Ahead If You Don't Fix Omega-3 Fat Deficiency

Story at-a-glance -

  • The American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) position on omega-6 fats runs counter to the vast majority of scientific research that supports the health benefits of lowering your omega-6 fat intake, and raising your omega-3 intake
  • Research shows that mega-3 fat deficiencies can lead to increased inflammation in your body, which predisposes you to chronic diseases like diabetes, allergies, and problems with mood and memory
  • The types of omega-3 and omega-6 fats you consume matters as much as the ratio. All dietary fats should come from whole foods that are organic, unprocessed, unrefined, and non-GMO; the AHA fails to address this
  • Your primary sources for both omega-3 and omega-6 fats should be organic, unrefined oils such as olive oil and avocado oil, raw milk and butter, free-range eggs, grass pastured beef, and whole seeds. Oils/fats you should avoid include corn, canola, soy, and margarine
