In order to maintain optimum health, the body requires a variety of different fats. Two of these—omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids—are essential. As a result of industrialized farming practices and modern food processing technology, the American diet is very high in omega-6s, but low in omega-3s. Correcting this imbalance through foods and supplements can be beneficial for the entire body.
The Story Behind Omega-3s
The best sources of omega-3 fats are cold water fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel. The omega-3s that come from marine animals are different from the plant forms (such as walnuts and flaxseed), in that many people cannot effectively convert the plant forms to the animal forms, which are the more potent and biologically active versions that the body ultimately requires.
Since most people do not consume cold water fish regularly, supplementation is critical for those concerned about any of the health issues listed to the right, and is also recommended for healthy individuals in order to maintain a good baseline balance of fatty acids.
