Omega 3-6-9 = the good fats to beat the bad fats!
Contrary to popular myth, the body truly needs fat. However, it must be the right kind of fat.
Essential Fatty Acids (omega fats) are the basic building blocks of which fats and oils are composed. The fatty acids that are necessary for health and that cannot be made by the body are called ESSENTIAL fatty acids or EFAs. These essential fats must be supplied through the diet.
Our three basic categories of essential fatty acids are designated Omega-3, Omega-6 & Omega-9 based upon their chemical structures.
- Omega-3: found in fresh deepwater fish, fish oil, and certain cold pressed vegetable oils such as canola, flaxseed oil, and walnut oil.
- Omega-6: found primarily in raw nuts, seeds, legumes, and unsaturated vegetable oils such as borage oil, grape seed oil, primrose oil, sesame oil, and soybean oil.
- Omega-9: found in canola oil, safflower oil, avocados, olives, almonds, cashews and macadamia nuts.
EFA’s have desirable effects on many disorders. They improve the skin and hair, reduce blood pressure, aid in the prevention of arthritis, lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and reduce the risk of blood clot formation. They are beneficial for candidiasis, cardiovascular disease, eczema, and psoriasis.
