Omega 6 EFA Protocol

    

“Traditional diets contain nearly equal amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids.” Weston A. Price Foundation

            

“It appears GLA is a very potent blood-pressure-lowering nutrient.” Engler et al

“Series 2 prostaglandins that the body makes from arachidonic acid both encourage and inhibit inflammation under appropriate circumstances. Arachidonic acid is vital for the function of the brain and nervous system.” Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation Journal 20:3

“Over consumption of high Glycemic Index foods leading to a high level of insulin can produce a high level of inflammatory arachidonic acid.” Kreisberg et al, Note it's not the arachidonic acid that is the problem

“A higher omega 3 EFA to omega 6 EFA ratio may reduce the risk of breast cancer especially in pre-menopausal women.”  Goodstine et al, Note more Omega 3 and/or less Omega 6

“Animal fats contain many nutrients that protect against cancer and heart disease; elevated rates of cancer and heart disease are associated with consumption of large amounts of vegetable oils.” Fed Proc July 1978 37:2215

“Reducing dietary vegetable oils and increasing the omega-3 fats EPA and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) by consuming fatty fish such as cod, salmon, mackerel, and sardines can benefit individuals experiencing chronic inflammatory conditions.” Adam O et al

“Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids of the omega 6 class found in corn oil and safflower oil may be involved in the development of breast cancer, where as long chain omega 3 PUFAs found in fish oil can inhibit breast cancer.” Bagga et al

“To reach optimal health, the ratio of omega 3s to omega 6s should be close to 1:1. When omega-6 fats predominate in your diet, as is common in the United States, this encourages the production of inflammation in your body. Since so many diseases have now been linked to chronic inflammation, this really is one of the most important nutrition concerns to get right. Many scientists believe that one major reason for today's high incidence of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, premature aging, and some forms of cancer is the profound imbalance between your intake of omega-6 and omega-3 fats.” Doctor Joseph Mercola

“People who consume higher amounts of vegetable oils (corn oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, etc.) lose their vision 3.8 times faster, and have twice the risk of macular degeneration.” Doctor Paul Beaumont

"New research from Germany and France suggests that supplements containing flaxseed or borage oil may protect skin against reddening and improve skin health from within. The omega-3 and omega-6-rich oils from flax and borage also led to a decrease in skin roughness and so-called skin scaling, according to findings published in the British Journal of Nutrition. (Journal of Nutrition Vol. 136, pp.165-1569)."  Swanson Vitamins

"Grass-fed beef is best because this is the food nature intended the cattle to eat—not the grains they are forced to consume. Their EFA structure is drastically unbalanced with grain and much more balanced with grass. However, if you choose a nutritional supplement, you can counteract this effect and eat all the grain-fed beef you desire." Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note IMO not quite all, there is still the toxic additives issue and MANY people over cook thus denaturing the omega 6 however Brian's point is the omega 6s in beef are undenatured

"AA (arachadonic acid) is a critical omega-6 derivative and major biochemical component which occurs in virtually every cell we have. It is the building block of the most potent anti-aggretory (“helps blood thinning”) agent known, termed prostacyclin. AA also inhibits platelet adhesion making it a natural “blood thinner.” AA even helps SOLVE vascular problems as a response to injury." Doctor Brian Peskin PhD

Book Review: This is an EXCELLENT book. You will understand fats

“Transfats can increase blood cholesterol levels by 15% and blood triglycerides levels by 47% very rapidly after ingestion. If our diet includes cholesterol this effect is enhanced.  Omega EFA found in flax and cold water fish oil reverse the bad effects of transfats.” Udo Erasmus PhD, Note the triglycerides are ten times more productive of CVD than cholesterol

"If there is insufficient unprocessed parent omega-6, experiment shows that the cholesterol structure will incorporate oleic acid (nonessential omega-9) instead. Physical-chemical experiments show that linoleic acid (parent omega-6) can bind twice as much oxygen and disassociates at a much higher pressure, much closer to hemoglobin, than oleic acid does. Oxygen disassociation curves for oleic acid compared with linoleic acid, omega-6, show a 50% reduction in oxygen transfer, given EFA deficiency. With insufficient functional parent omega-6, you will easily surpass the 35% cancer-causing threshold!" Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note parent omega 6 is unprocessed food high in omega 6

"Health practitioners often suggest you use no additional parent omega-6 and that instead you use supplements exclusively with parent omega-3. This is incorrect because the omega-6 we do consume in our foods is highly processed, harmful and often loaded with cancer-causing transfats. You need the additional pure parent omega-6 to compensate for this. Because the parent EFAs are so much more effective than EFA derivatives, you need a much lower total quantity than other formulations." Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note parent omega 6 is unprocessed food high in omega 6. In addition to ingesting GOOD omega 6s we need to ELIMINATE the denatured omega 6s

"Get enough copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc, in a “truly chelated” bioavailable form. These are the minerals that Dr. Warburg would use because they influence and maximize the respiratory (co)enzymes for maximum oxygen transfer to occur. They help EFAs do their job. Make sure they are in bioavailable form (truly chelated meaning chemically bonded to an amino acid) or they won’t be maximally effective."     Doctor Brian Peskin PhD

"Since LA is an essential fatty acid, the form in which it is ingested is critical. In the past several decades, processed foods—in particular, frozen foods and restaurant cooking oils—have increasingly incorporated trans fats and other unhealthy fats and oils. Moreover, when heated in air, the LA in these oils changes to hydroperoxides, which are biochemically damaging to the body. This results in less functional LA for incorporation into cell membranes." Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note LA is omega 6 EFA 

 

"If there is a deficiency of fully functional LA in the diet, the body will substitute into cell membranes a nonessential fatty acid, such as oleic acid (omega-9) found in olive oil. This forced substitution results in a marked decrease of cellular oxygen transport with adverse effects on cellular metabolism and function, including possible chronic hypoxia in the heart leading to potential myocardial dysfunction."    Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note LA is omega 6 EFA, this is a big part of the cancer and sudden heart death problems IMO

"LDL-C, the transport vehicle for PEFA delivery into the cell, will transport any kind of LA—defective or not—into cells, including oxidized or trans entities. So, while statins do reduce the amount of LDL-C, thereby automatically reducing the amount of nonfunctional parent omega-6 from processed food that reaches cell membranes, they simultaneously lower the transport of vital oxygenating functional PEFAs into cells. In fact, over a 24-week period in which patients were given 40 mg daily of simvastatin, mean serum omega-3 levels dropped 34%, and omega-6 levels dropped 28%; both highly significant amounts." Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note PEFA is parent EFA the unprocessed Whole food source of EFA, LDL-C is the cholesterol faction of the LDL packet, Note these losses border on cancer causing; the defective LA will also build less functional endothelial cells more vulnerable injury and plaque initiation

"It was also found that cholesterol esters (chemically attached fatty acid structures) are the predominant lipid fraction in all plaque types, and that both cholesterol and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), in particular, abundant parent omega-6, may form oxidized derivatives that are toxic to most types of arterial cells. Most interesting is the conclusion that arterial plaque rupture, which can cause thrombosis and vessel occlusion and increase the potential for myocardial infarction and stroke, was significantly related to oxidation of the LA." Doctor Brian Peskin PhD            

"What if the cholesterol structure in the arterial intima contained significant amounts of oxidized or nonfunctional parent omega-6 attributable largely to ingestion of foods containing LA oxidized or otherwise damaged in the course of routine food processing, before any in vivo oxidation? We know that the intima consists of a single layer of endothelial cells containing significant LA, but no ALA. Consumed, processed LA deposited in arterial intimal cell membranes leads to abnormal oxidation at the vascular injury site, thus causing injurious inflammation. In this case, abnormal oxidation involves formation of a hydroperoxide from LA. What else could cause LA in the endothelial cells to become oxidized? Could significant amounts of LA already defective from routine food processing transported by LDL-C be the real culprit?" Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note ALA is omega 3 EFA. IMO Brian has nailed the initial break in the endothelial layer it is from the denatured processed omega 6 we are consuming by the 100,000s of tons. The endothelial cells are constructed with this inferior fat. This is an IMMENSE breakthrough

"Gerhard Spiteller, who has investigated EFAs and their degradation products—specifically, the influence of these substances in mammalian physiology—concluded that consumption of oxidized PUFA-cholesterol esters is responsible for the initial damage to endothelial cells and that cholesterol oxidation products are incorporated into LDL-C in the liver. LDL carries these toxic compounds into the endothelial walls where they cause cell damage, and thus injury is not caused by an increase in free cholesterol but by an increase in oxidized cholesterol esters." Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Note at last the proof cholesterol is innocent it is the cholesterol esterified with the denatured omega 6s that is a bad actor 

"Substantial evidence that omega-6 oils powerfully induce inflammation and immune suppression when consumed in large amounts. Those eating a Western diet are consuming 50-fold higher amounts of this type of oil (called linoleic acid) than needed for health. These oils include corn, safflower, sunflower, canola, peanut and soybean oils. So, we see that the average child is exposed to a number of substances in their food and environment that can also alter immunity, making them not only more susceptible to natural infection, but also to vaccine complications."  Doctor Russell Blaylock MD, Note there is no contradiction between what Doctors Peskin and Blaylock are saying. Only eat undenatured omega 6 in amounts no greater than two times your undenatured omega 3 and both will be happy

"The study also found that cholesterol esters (chemically attached fatty acid structures) are the predominant lipid fraction in all plaque types, and that both cholesterol and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), in particular, abundant parent omega-6, may form oxidized derivatives that are toxic to most types of arterial cells. Most interesting is the conclusion that arterial plaque rupture, which can cause thrombosis and vessel occlusion and increase the potential for myocardial infarction and stroke, was significantly related to oxidation of the LA.”    Doctor Brian Peskin PhD, Excellent Article on Atherosclerosis, Note LA is omega 6

"Over the last century, most western countries have undergone a dramatic shift in nutrition. Omega-6 is a rarity in our historically natural diet, but since the rise of cooking oils and convenience foods, beneficial omega-3 fatty acids have been flooded out by competing omega-6. These come mainly from oils such as soya and sunflower, found in every kitchen and used in industrial frying for almost all ready meals, snack foods and takeaways. And, following this growing imbalance in the ratio of omega-3 and 6, most western societies have seen a surge in inflammatory conditions such as asthma and arthritis, neurological disorders like dementia, and aggressive public behavioral trends. Industrial societies where omega-3 consumption has remained high and omega-6 low because people eat more fish, such as Japan, have lower rates of murder and depression and higher child IQs."    Dietary Book Denounces [Excess] Omega-6 as the Devil’s Fat

     

Omega-6 EFA

Omega 6 EFA is required for life. Omega 6 EFA is described as an oxygen magnet. It will draw oxygen to itself. If your cell membrane has abundant Omega 6 EFA oxygen will cluster around the cell and be drawn into the cell. Once inside the cell the oxygen is attracted to the cell wall from the INSIDE thus each of your 100 trillion cells respires and is protected by an oxygen barrier. Many pathogens and disease processes are thus foiled in their attack on the cell. Omega 6 EFAs are denatured and rendered unfit for consumption when heated (See Cooking Protocol) above about 300 F. IMO attempt to get equal amounts of good omega 3 EFA and good omega 6 EFA in your diet.

  

Omega-6 EFA exists as

  • LA - linoleic acid
  • GLA - gamma-linolenic acid
  • AA; ARA - arachidonic acid

Lots of modern "foods" contain omega 6 EFA our problem is most of these foods are not fit to eat. For example most of the oils in the supermarket (See Supermarket Oils Protocol) contain  DENATURED omega 6 EFAs most of these are not fit for human or animal consumption (See Polyunsaturated Oils Protocol). Many processed foods (See Processed Food Protocol) contain DENATURED omega 6 EFA we should avoid these. Fast foods (See Fast Food Protocol) are loaded with perfectly AWFUL types of DENATURED omega 6 EFAs.

   

Omega-6 EFA from Grain Fed Animals

http://www.real-foods.net/images/healthy-milk.gif

Real Foods

Grain feed animals (See Meat Protocol) and their products also contain omega 6 EFA. Of all major commercial sources of omega 6 commercial meat as bad as commercial meat can be, does supply a good omega 6. Just don't cook your meat over 300 F; this will oxidize the omega 6 turning it into a toxin. Be sure to balance the high omega 6 obtained from commercial meat with omega 3 obtained elsewhere. This is one reason you cannot eat too much commercial meat. Grass fed meat will have a balance between the omega 3 and the omega 6.

   

Omega 6 EFAs MUST be balanced with Omega 3 EFAs

“Traditional diets contain nearly equal amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids.” Weston A. Price Foundation

 Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fats

 http://www.genesmart.com/filebin/images/resized_images/Figure-8-omega6-omega3.jpg

Healthy Fats: Omega 3 vs. Omega 6 , Note our American ratio is about 20 to 40 to 1, a very unhealthy ratio

     

Omega-3 Fats and Cardiovascular Disease

“Recognizing the unique benefits of EPA and DHA and the serious consequences of a deficiency the US National Institutes of Health recently published Recommended Daily Intakes of essential fatty acids. They recommend a total daily intake of 650 mg of EPA and DHA, 2.22 g/day of Omega 3 EFA and 4.44 g/day of Omega 6 EFA.” Note IMO this is LOW I try to get between 5 and 10 grams/day of each omega 3 and 6 on average This requires a LOT of vitamins C and E to keep the EFAs from oxidizing..

“The best fats or oils rather, since they are liquid at room temperature, are those that contain the essential fatty acids so named because without them we die. Essential fatty acids are polyunsaturated and grouped into two families, the omega-6 EFAs and the omega-3 EFAs. Seemingly minor differences in their molecular structure make the two EFA families act very differently in the body. While the metabolic products of omega-6 acids promote inflammation, blood clotting, and tumor growth, the omega-3 acids act entirely opposite. Although we do need both omega-3s and omega-6s it is becoming increasingly clear that an excess of omega-6 fatty acids can have dire consequences. Many scientists believe that a major reason for the high incidence of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, premature aging, and some forms of cancer is the profound imbalance between our intake of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Our ancestors evolved on a diet with a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 of about 1:1. A massive change in dietary habits over the last few centuries has changed this ratio to something closer to 20:1 and this spells trouble.” Fish Oils: The Essential Nutrients

"The higher the amount of omega 3 relative to omega 6 in an aging individual's total fatty composition, the greater the benefit."   Life Extension

“… Replacing dietary saturated fats with omega-6 PUFAs increased all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality and mortality from coronary heart disease. Not only that, but, "An increase of 5% of food energy from [omega-6 PUFAs] predicted 35% and 29% higher risk of cardiovascular death and all cause mortality, respectively". Similarly, the updated meta-analysis found that increasing dietary omega-6 PUFAs in isolation was associated with increased mortality risk from both coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease overall. And Omega-6's are the main components of polyunsaturated fats in the Western diet - and they are found in vegetable oils and margarines - the very things we started to eat more of forty or so years ago when we were warned saturated fats would give us heart disease!”    Saturated fat: not so bad after all

"There seems to be no ‘corrective’ metabolic response to prevent fatal tissue combinations from being developed. As much as humans might wish for some protective re-adjustment of the metabolic promiscuity, the enzymes seem to continue assembling harmful and harmless combinations in response to supplies ingested – without much regard to or feedback from the consequences."    Lands W.E.  Note a diet too heavy in omega 6s may be hard for your body to deal with
