Omega 3 EFA Protocol Continuation

     

The Omega 6 EFA to Omega 3 Raito is a Key to Good Health

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

http://wakeforestchiropractic.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/ratio1.jpg

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

“Excessive amounts of omega 6 EFA and a high omega 6/omega 3 ratio as is found in the average US diet promotes the pathogenesis of cancer and other inflammatory diseases.” Life Extension

"Omega 3 EFAs combat CVD through a host of interrelated mechanisms, including the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, elevation of beneficial HDL, and reduction of triglycerides and VLDL. The ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 in blood and cell membranes strongly influences CVD factors."   Life Extension

"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

"Endothelial dysfunction the complex result of years of elevated cholesterol, inflammation and structural remodeling of tissue is improved in large arteries by 3-4 grams/day of combined omega 3 supplements."   Life Extension, Note this is because we most often have too much often denatured omega 6

"Telomeres—bits of DNA that cap and protect the ends of chromosomes—have been compared to the coating at the ends of shoelaces that prevent them from fraying. The current investigation revealed an increase in telomere length in association with reductions in the participants' plasma omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio, which declined in those who were supplemented with 1.25 grams or 2.5 grams per day EPA and DHA. Those who received the omega-3 fatty acids also had reduced levels of oxidative stress in comparison with those who received a placebo."    Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation Improves Marker of Aging

  

Is it easy to shift the omega-6:omega-3 ratio of my diet to one that is more beneficial?

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

    

The easy way to assure a good ratio, which is between 1:1 and 2:1 in favor of the omega 6, is to eat NO processed food which is loaded with denatured omega 6 and roughly balance your good whole food based omega 3 and good whole food based omega 6.  Most people can use some omega 3 supplementation to include EPA and DNA. Ocean fish such as salmon provide this in a delicious meal.

    

Omega 3 EFA is Key for Sudden Cardiac Death Avoidance

"Harvard researchers found people with total omega 3 levels above 8.1% of their total fatty acids were 90% less likely to die of sudden cardiac death than those with 4.3% or lower."   Life Extension, Note conversely those at 4.3 were ten times more likely

Low levels of omega 3 is a big factor in sudden cardiac death.

Omega 3 EFAs are HIGHLY Anti-CVD

http://healthiack.com/images/fish-and-omega-3.jpg

How much Omega 3 per day?

    

"Omega 3 fatty acids combat cardiovascular disease through a host of interrelated mechanisms, including the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, elevation of beneficial HDL and reduction of triglycerides and VLDL."   Life Extension

"Our findings contradict the current belief in the medical community that increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids produces only long-term cardiac benefits, In fact, our study group showed improvements in heart function in as little as two weeks." Fernando Holguin, MD, Emory University

“Omega 3 fatty acids reduced the incidence of fatal heart attacks even in patients with established coronary heart disease.” Bucher et al

"Omega 3 EFA and transfats have profound effects on cardiovascular health in incredibly small amounts. CVD risk is reduced by one third by 250 mg of DHA and EPA. Transfats are the  most harmful fats in the food supply. Eating 40 calories of transfats a day raises your risk of CVD by 30%."  Doctor Dariush Mozaffarian MD

"The researchers, from the Hanyang University in Seoul, matched 50 men and women with acute nonfatal myocardial infarction (heart attack) with 50 age and gender-matched controls who did not have a history of heart attack. Red blood cells were analyzed for levels of trans-fatty acids (undesirable fatty acids found in partially hydrogenated vegetable oil), and the beneficial omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (found in fish and the algae they feed on). The omega-3 fatty acid index, which is the sum of red blood cell EPA and DHA, was significantly lower in heart attack patients compared with controls, while total trans-fatty acids were significantly higher. Those whose omega-3 fatty acid index was among the top third of participants had a 92 percent lower risk of heart attack than those whose levels were in the lowest third. For those whose total trans-fatty acids were in the top third, the risk of heart attack was 72.67 percent higher than subjects in the lowest third.  The authors note that omega-3 fatty acids are associated with decreased blood viscosity, and have anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic, anti-arrhythmic, lipid lowering and vasodilatory effects. Conversely, trans-fatty acids have been associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease.”

"Omega 3 EFAs combat CVD through a host of interrelated mechanisms, including the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, elevation of beneficial HDL, and reduction of triglycerides and VLDL. The ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 in blood and cell membranes strongly influences CVD factors."   Life Extension

    

Omega 3 EFAs are HIGHLY Anti-Inflammatory

“Omega 3 EFA help to suppress the formation of undesirable inflammatory PE2 and promote the synthesis of beneficial PE3.” Kelley et al

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

“Seven days of dietary omega 3 oil effectively reduced inflammatory cytokine formation and thromboxane A2 production by platelets in rats.”  Ikeda et al 1995, Note thromboxane A2 promotes blood clotting

“Results showed that as omega-3 levels increased, CRP levels decreased, and "statistically significant inverse associations were also observed with the total serum long-chain omega-3 PUFA [polyunsaturated fatty acid] concentration and with the individual long-chain omega-3 PUFAs docosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid."   Omega-3 Again Linked to Lower Inflammation

Evidence shows that omega-3s may reverse sugar’s brain damage

Omega-3 supplements proven to be powerful medicine by drastically reducing CXCL-10 inflammation factors across the body

      

Your body uses its inflammation process to heal itself. There are two parts to inflammation; the pro-inflammation phase and the inflammation clean up. The Omega 6 EFAs tend to produce pro-inflammatory substances and the Omega 3 EFAs produce inflammation calming substances.  This is one reason the two should be balanced in your body. If you have 40 times as much inflammation producing as inflammation calming building blocks you are in trouble. If you eat a SAD (See SAD Protocol) you will have this unbalanced EFA problem.

    

Lack of Omega 3 EFAs may result in

"When a female patient on a fat-free TPN diet was given 500 ml of plasma lipoproteins (EFA's with red cell membranes) for a period of seven days her lipid values normalized promptly Her visual disturbances which characterized her EFA deficiency were reversed simply by giving a linolenate-rich infusion."   William Fischer, Note this demonstrated how quickly your body responds when you feed it well.

“Omega-3 deficiency is a common underlying factor for cancer.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

     

YOU are probably not getting enough Omega 3 EFAs

Recent statistics indicate that over 90% of people in the United States do not eat enough omega 3 fatty acids. Now since the omega 3 EFAs are ESSENTIAL for life what is this saying about our health and way of eating? You do not need much omega 3 EFA about ten to twenty grams a day and you need not get it every day, just average it. I often throw a whole can of wild salmon in a salad. A can of wild salmon contains about four or five grams of omega 3 EFAs. There is copious evidence more than an adequate amount of omega 3 EFA can be highly therapeutic.

There are very few good sources of Omega 3 EFAs. This is why there is a strong possibility, almost a certainty, that YOU are not currently getting enough of the absolutely critical Omega 3 EFAs. You MUST learn these few sources and WORK to include them in your diet. It is not easy but it is essential that you provide your body with this essential fat. When I was a boy almost all beef was loaded with omega 3 EFA. If you feed a steer on grass he will produce meat with lots of omega 3 EFA. All wild animals that eat their natural wild food contain omega 3 EFA. Take that same steer or salmon and feed him grain and you get MUCH less omega 3 EFA, about ten times less. What you get is more omega 6 EFA (See Omega 6 EFA Protocol).

    

Brain Function and Omega 3

“Sixty percent of your brain is made up of fat. DHA (docosahexanoic acid, a type of omega-3 fat) alone makes up about 15 percent to 20 percent of your brain's cerebral cortex. It's found in high levels in your neurons – the cells of your central nervous system, where it provides structural support. Because your brain is literally built from omega-3 fats, it makes sense that high doses of them following injury might support your brain's natural healing process.”    Family, Physician Believe Omega-3s Healed Teen's Brain

"Omega 3 fats DHA and EPA are essential for brain function. In fact 60 percent of the brain consists of DHA. A lack of t these fats is strongly associated with ADHD as well as eczema and immune deficiency."    Doctor Mark Hyman MD

“More research shows that polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), mainly the omega-3s found in fish, benefit maternal and infant health, immune function and total parenteral nutrition (TPN). One study showed that providing greater amounts of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 PUFA, and arachidonic acid, an omega-6 PUFA, to preterm infants with very low birth weights resulted in improved cognition. This study provides additional evidence that the fatty acids an infant receives from the mother during pregnancy are critically important for brain development.“  Life Extension

“Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, specifically arachidonic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a major component of fish oil, are accumulated in the brain of the fetus and infant during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first year of life. DHA, in particular, has been found to be important for the development of the infant’s central nervous system and visual acuity. Although infants can, to a limited extent, convert alpha-linolenic acid to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and DHA, by far the majority of the infant’s need for DHA must be met through mother’s milk or fortified infant formula. Danish researchers suggest that the transfer of DHA from mother to infant via breast milk may significantly deplete the DHA status of the mother.”    Danish Research, Note well mom if that can of salmon sounds good HAVE SOME

"Omega 3 fats DHA and EPA are essential for brain function. In fact 60 percent of the brain consists of DHA. A lack of these fats is strongly associated with ADHD as well as eczema and immune deficiency."   Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"The puzzle of the big brain change involved scientists putting together pieces that at first look had no relation. The first piece of the puzzle involved discovering early human populations that demonstrated greater intelligence. They found evidence in the East African Rift Valley and on the southern Cape of South Africa. The second piece of the puzzle was the discovery that docosahexaenoic acid, (DHA), was a large contributor to brain growth. The third piece was the discovery that DHA was found in seafood. When scientists put all the pieces together they found that the early humans who lived near water sources and ate seafood experienced the big brain change!”    DHA and your progenitor's Brain  

"Animal based omega-3 fats contain two fatty acids crucial to your health, DHA and EPA. These two fatty acids, not ALA, are pivotal in preventing heart disease, cancer, and many other diseases. It is also important to realize that over 50 percent of your brain is is made up of DHA Low DHA levels have been linked to depression, schizophrenia, memory loss, and a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's. In fact, the results of three studies published in 2008 showed that low concentrations of EPA and DHA resulted in an increased risk of death from ALL causes and accelerated cognitive decline. Researchers are now also linking inadequate intake of these omega-3 fats in pregnant women to premature birth and low birth weight, and to hyperactivity in children.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

"Parkinson's disease starts when genetic variants cause proteins to misfold in your sensitive neurons. New research shows you can stop these proteins from misfolding. The researchers in this study concentrated on a cell model with a mutation of a particular gene. This resulted in misfolding of the protein. They found that the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) protects the cells from the defect. Interestingly, the same research team had previously found that DHA induces the naturally occurring molecule neuroprotecting D1. This molecule promotes brain cell survival. It is capable of rescuing dying cells with the folding mutation. That means this omega-3 fat may protect your brain cells from abnormal mutations and from Parkinson's.”   Doctor Robert Rowen MD

Evidence shows that omega-3s may reverse sugar’s brain damage

The Incredible Oil that Helps Prevent Heart Attacks (And Stalls Aging Too!)

Omega-3 Improves Amyloid Clearance

"An article published in The FASEB Journal reports the ability of omega-3 to promote the brain’s clearance of beta-amyloid, a toxic protein that accumulates in the form of plaque in Alzheimer’s disease patients. Omega-3 fatty acids accomplish this by improving the function of the glymphatic system, a functional waste-clearance pathway for the central nervous system."   Omega-3 Improves Amyloid Clearance

Your brain is composed mostly of FATS with the omega 3s being an important part of these fats. Ten percent of the dry weight of your brain is the omega 3 fat, DHA. The evidence that omega 3s help build and can heal your brain is overwhelming. If you have any brain or neurodegenerative problems omega 3 fats can help and are required.

     

Depression and Omega 3

"[P]sychological surveys clearly showed an important change in anxiety among the students: Those receiving the omega-3 showed a 20 percent reduction in anxiety compared to the placebo group."   Eurekalert July 13, 2011

"What's more years of psychoanalysis will not reverse the depression that comes from profound omega 3 EFA deficiencies, a lack of vitamin B12, a low functioning thyroid or a chronic mercury toxicity." Doctor Mark Hyman MD

"How can exercise and fish oil be more effective for depression than anti-depressant drugs? Could it be because they are both potent anti-inflammatories? Could it be that depression is a low-grade inflammatory condition of the brain."    Doctor Mark Hyman MD

“A large survey of Finnish adults found that depressive symptoms were significantly higher among infrequent fish consumers (1) and other studies have shown that individuals with major depression have marked depletions in omega-3 fatty acids (2).” Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

“Several studies have established a clear association between low levels of omega-3 fatty acids and depression. Other studies have shown that countries with a high level of fish consumption have fewer cases of depression. Researchers at Harvard Medical School have successfully used fish oil supplementation to treat bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness) and British researchers report encouraging results in the treatment of schizophrenia.”    Hans R. Larsen, MSc ChE

“Because depression and dementia share the common vascular risk factors; the vasculoprotective properties of fish oil and its EPA could contribute to decrease depression and dementia risk simultaneously.”    Samieri et al 2008

Does the Military Know Omega-3s Work Better than Antidepressants?

Suicide is unfortunately an all too common complication of depression with about 30,000 people dying every year in the U.S. alone. Low DHA levels have been linked to this condition. Studies have shown that as DHA and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, another omega-3 fat) levels rise, depressive symptoms drop. Dr. Stoll, a Harvard psychiatrist, was one of the early leaders in compiling the evidence supporting the use of animal-based omega-3 fats for the treatment of depression. He wrote an excellent book that details his experience in this area called The Omega-3 Connection.”     Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

"In a brand new study, scientists in Japan have documented a strong correlation between low blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids and higher symptoms of depression.1 This study is important since depression is a growing worldwide health problem.1 Drugs to treat depression are only partially effective and produce side effects. A growing body of consistent findings reveals a close link between depressive symptoms and chronic inflammation.2-4 What this means is that compounds like omega-3s, with proven anti-inflammatory effects, may also alleviate depression—and that’s what new studies are finding! "  How Omega-3 Fights Depression

  

Omega 3 often in the form of fish oil has been shown in numerous clinical trials to be a potent anti-depressant.

Ohio State University evaluated blood samples taken from 43 older adults (average age 67), they found that study participants with high ratios of omega-6 to omega-3 not only had higher levels of various compounds involved in inflammation, but were more likely to suffer from depression.    

    

Omega 3 EFA and Omega 6 are THE Keys to Cancer

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

“Cancer cells with a high omega 6/omega 3 ratio continue to grow whereas cancer cells expressing high omega 3 characteristics undergo cell death. Clearly the need to balance the omega 3 to omega 6 ratio is indicated for the prevention and during the treatment of cancer”  Life Extension, Note here it is folks, here it is, oxygen is getting into those dying cancer cells.

“Excessive amounts of omega 6 EFA and a high omega 6/omega 3 ratio as is found in the average US diet promotes the pathogenesis of cancer and other inflammatory diseases.” Life Extension

"Telomeres—bits of DNA that cap and protect the ends of chromosomes—have been compared to the coating at the ends of shoelaces that prevent them from fraying. The current investigation revealed an increase in telomere length in association with reductions in the participants' plasma omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio, which declined in those who were supplemented with 1.25 grams or 2.5 grams per day EPA and DHA. Those who received the omega-3 fatty acids also had reduced levels of oxidative stress in comparison with those who received a placebo."    Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation Improves Marker of Aging

Read the above research paragraph a few times. Reread it again. Here is your cancer prevention in a nutshell. Get 10 to 20 grams of omega 3 per day. Get no more than 10 to 30 grams of GOOD omega 6 (See Omega 6 EFA Protocol). Ingest NO polyunsaturated omega 6 (See Polyunsaturated Oil Protocol). A high consumption of any and all omega oil requires a good ingestion of vitamin E and the fat soluble antioxidants to keep them from oxidizing.    

      

Good Sources of Omega 3 EFAs

“There are two types of omega-3 fat – plant-based and animal-based. Plant-based omega-3 sources like flax, hemp and chia are high in ALA and are important sources of nutrients, as we all need ALA. However, ALA has to be converted by your body into the far more essential EPA and DHA by an enzyme in which the vast majority of us have impaired by high insulin levels.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD,  Note so here it is folks keep your insulin LOW as we MUST for many other reasons and you will be able to convert the plant based omega 3 into the critical DHA and EPA

“There are many who argue you can get all of the omega-3 fats you need from plant sources, but I disagree. Plant-based omega-3 sources include flax, hemp, and chia seeds, which are all high in ALA. Your body can convert ALA into EPA and DHA—but only in small quantities, as I discussed earlier. While you certainly should consume these plant-based fats, you cannot rely on them exclusively to meet all your body's omega-3 fat  requirements. Your body needs all three omega-3 fats (ALA, EPA and DHA), and for this, you need both plant AND animal sources. You should avoid taking DHA-only products, for the same reason. For optimal health, then, it boils down to the need for balance among these various essential fats, and you can achieve this balance by eating a diet that incorporates a wide variety of whole foods from both plant and animal sources, and a good omega-3 supplement.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

Farm raised salmon (See Salmon Protocol), often-termed “Atlantic Salmon” is not as good a source of Omega EFAs as is wild salmon. Farmed salmon also contains about ten times the toxins as the wild. Canned tuna is just an OK source because it usually contains little of the tuna fat and too much mercury.

    

Flax a GREAT Omega 3 Source CAN BE a great source of EPA and DHA

https://cardamomvalley.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Flax-Seeds-1.jpg

"Flaxseed oil contains ALA.  To be converted into omega-3's (EPA and DHA), it must go through the enzyme Delta-6 Desaturase. Linoleic acid, which is found in a lot of high fat processed foods, is also metabolized through that enzyme, and so it competes for space with ALA. Linoleic acid is converted into compounds which promote inflammation. In the last several decades, the American diet has become dominated by these omega-6 fatty acids.  If you are eating like other Americans, you have significant competition for the enzyme needed to convert flaxseed oil into omega-3's.  Flaxseed oils themselves include omega-6's as well as omega-3's, about10-20%."    Omega-3's and Flaxseed Oil: The chemical pathway

Omega-3's and Flaxseed Oil: The chemical pathway

"After four weeks on a flaxseed oil diet EPA was elevated 150% and DHA by 70% over initial levels."   Doctor P.V. Johnson PhD commenting on the work of H.J. Mest

“Although flaxseed is high in the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, the researchers found instead a significantly higher level of the omega-3 fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in the red blood cells and prostate tissue of participants who received flaxseed, which suggests that ALA in flax was converted to EPA in the body.Demark-Wahnefried et al, UTHouston

As the above research suggests some of the omega 3 ALA may be converted by your body to the vital omega 3 EFA EPA and DHA (See DHA & EPA Protocol). It certainly helps if you eat no more than two times your omega 3s as omega 6s.

There is some controversy about this but IMO it looks to be happening in the real world.

    

Omega 3 EFAs are easily destroyed

 Omega 3 EFAs and all EFAs are denatured and rendered unfit for consumption when heated above about 300 F. Because the Omega 3 EFAs are so biologically active they are quickly turned rancid by heat, light and oxygen. You should eat your Omega 3 EFAs food sources fresh or freshly ground and take lots of fat soluble antioxidants to protect these easily oxidized EFAs inside your body. When cooking wild game a stew will assure cooking temperatures do not exceed 300 F.

Protect all supplements (See Supplement Protocol) from heat, oxygen and light; especially the EFAs and other oils. The Omega 3 EFA supplement should come in an oxygen sealed softgel capsule in a dark bottle. I keep my opened Omega 3 EFA supplements in my refrigerator. If you smell the Omega 3 EFA source you will quickly detect any rancidity. Throw out any rancid source; the free radicals it contains will harm you. Vitamin E and other fat soluble antioxidants will protect your bodies Omega 3 EFAs from oxidation.

If you are using large amounts of the EFAs for therapeutic purposes you must likewise use large amounts of fat soluble antioxidants, especially vitamin E to keep your EFAs from oxidizing within your body.

   

How much EFAs do you need?

“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

   

IMO this is LOW I try to get between 5 - 10 grams/day of each omega 3 and 6 on average. The less well you feel the more you need. Make sure you get plenty of Omega 3 EFA. Try to get equal amounts of GOOD Omega 6 EFAs (See Omega 6 EFA Protocol) and Omega 3 EFAs. The more EFAs you eat the more vitamin E and other fat soluble antioxidants you need to take to keep the easily oxidized EFAs from oxidizing within your body.

"As a general rule 9 to 30 grams daily (approximately 3 to 10 percent of the days calories) of the essential fatty acids seems to be about right for a normal person."   William Fischer

    

Good Omega 6 EFAs MUST be balanced with Good Omega 3 EFAs

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

http://wakeforestchiropractic.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/ratio1.jpg

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

“Omega 3 EFA consumption has declined to one sixth of that consumed in 1850.”  Udo Erasmus PhD, Note omega 6 consumption has also doubled or tripled since then

“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

“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

“The balance between omega-6 and omega-3 PUFA is important in the context of the production of pro- versus anti-inflammatory lipids. Chronic diseases like atherosclerosis and diabetic retinopathy are inflammatory diseases of the vasculature. Omega-6 PUFA are pro-inflammatory, while omega-3 PUFA—particularly EPA and DHA—are anti-inflammatory.” Donald B. Jump, PhD

IMO one of the BIGGEST problems in health currently is the excess of denatured omega 6 EFA over omega 3 EFA. The two should be eaten in about the same amounts. So many health problems can be traced back to this unhealthy ratio it confounds the mind. The numerous unhealthy sources of omega 6 should NEVER be eaten.

    

Excess Denatured Omega 6 Consumption Problems

       

Omega 3 EFA and Olive Oil are a Potent Combination

"Research also indicates that the combination of omega 3 EFA with olive oil polyphenols offers benefits beyond those provided by either alone. Hence dietary supplementation of such an oil mixture may be valuable in the prevention of atherosclerotic vascular disease."  Life Extension

Olive oil together with omega 3 EFA provide a powerful combination for your cardiovascular system.  We should be aware of the (extreme danger of most other processed vegetable oils found in the supermarket.) Using olive oil in place of these dangerous oils will give your health a powerful boost. IMO olive oil should be utilized by everyone as the go to kitchen oil.

      

Protect ALL Oil

Light heat and air are the top enemies of oil. Keep oil in a dark glass bottle in your fridge, tightly sealed. Oxygen promotes rancidity. Oil can easily go rancid when exposed to air, light or high temperatures.

    

Conclusion

Recent statistics indicate that over 90% of people in the United States do not eat enough omega 3 fatty acids. Its work to achieve a good Omega 3: Omega 6 ratio, as it seems omega 6, almost always denatured, is found everywhere these days. Do this work you are worth it. Try to get your Omega 3s from as many sources as possible be sure to include at least one vegetable and one animal source.

     

IMO the Drugs are the Problem NOT Omega 3 EFAs

Caution if you are taking toxic drugs for a disorder involving bleeding, bruise very easily, or are taking toxic drug blood anti-coagulants you should talk with your doctor before taking supplemental omega 3 fatty acids. Then work to get off the drug toxins so you can enjoy the benefits of the absolutely essential omega 3’s without worry. In most cases to pass up the ESSENTIAL omega 3 essential fatty acids for a NON-essential toxic drug is the height of misinformed medical insanity and will likely shorten your life IMO.
