What is Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acid


What is Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acid

Hello there.

I am very happy to be here today with everybody and want to say thank you to all our readers and subscribers.

Today will be about Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, the difference, its importance, and benefits to our heart.

Before I dive in, something very funny happened recently at home :).

My four-year-old son went to school with my Omega 3 supplement and started giving a health presentation.

He was a scientist on the day of their school science and art’s exhibition.

I was surprised to hear what he said during his talk, he taught his classmate and teachers,

-a little of what he knows about my omega 3 supplement (don’t want to name the product cus they didn’t pay me for the advert).

“he said my mum’s omega 3 is the only soap that can wash butter and cheese away from the water pipe inside our heart

so that we don’t die like a heart attack” lolzzzz 🙂 🙂 :).

when you hear my rendition of the presentation you will laugh and roll on the ground.

That is why we advise parents not to say or do the wrong things in front of their toddlers, they are very smart and sharp.


Back to the Business of the day what is omega 3?.

Back to Basics: Essential fatty acids defined…

The body can make most of the fats it needs to function.

But certain fats—known as essential fatty acids (EFAs)—must come from the diet alone.

Our bodies don’t have the necessary enzymes to make them. Both of these fatty acids are needed for growth and repair.

Such is the case with the omega-3 and omega-6 families of fatty acids.


Both omega-3 (ω-3) and omega-6 (ω-6) fatty acids are important components of cell membranes and are-

-precursors to many other substances in the body such as those involved with regulating blood pressure and inflammatory responses.

There is increasing support for omega-3 fatty acids in protecting against fatal heart disease and it is known that-

-they have anti-inflammatory effects, which may be important in this and other diseases.

There is growing interest in the role of omega-3 fatty acids in the prevention of diabetes and certain types of cancer.


Within each family of fatty acid, there are specific fatty acids that come from different parts of our food supply.

For example, there are a few types of omega-3 fatty acids; the most common omega-3s are alpha-linolenic

acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

ALA is found in plants, primarily flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts, and their oils.

EPA and DHA are called long-chain omega-3 fatty acids because they have 20 or more carbons in their structure.

These fatty acids are found in fatty fish such as albacore tuna, herring, salmon, mackerel, sardines, and trout.

Most scientific and clinical studies carried out to date have examined the effectiveness of this long-chain omega-3s found in fish.

Consequently, most scientists who work in this area believe these are the omega-3s that have the greatest anti-inflammatory

-and brain-protective benefits.

ALA is a plant-based precursor to EPA and DHA, meaning your body in some cases can convert it into EPA and DHA.

However, some research has shown that this conversion is not all that effective, and credible studies indicate that individual humans

-have dramatically different capacities to carry out this conversion.

So to be safe, most studies indicate that you are better off getting your omega-3s from fish rather than plant sources.


There are also several commonly found omega-6 fatty acids that include linoleic acid (LA), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA),

and arachidonic acid (AA). LA is by far the most common fatty acid found in the human food supply.

It is a primary fatty acid found in cooking oils, including vegetable, corn, canola, peanut, soybean, safflower, and sunflower.

GLA is in less common oils—mainly borage, black currant seed, and evening primrose.

AA is found in red meat, eggs, and poultry products.



?The proper omega-6 and the omega-3 ratio

Do we need both omega-6s and omega-3s in our diet? The short answer is, yes, we do.

Our body requires both of these fatty acids for proper growth, immune response, repair, and brain development.

However, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids have very different functions.

Omega-6 fatty acids are the precursors of several molecules that cause ?Inflammation?, which we now know is

-the primary driver of most human diseases. In addition to inflammation, omega-6 fatty acids impact blood clotting and cell growth.

In contrast, the omega-3 fatty acids—and especially the long-chain omega-3s—reduce inflammation and blood clotting

-and are critical for brain development and function. When both families of fatty acids are in balance, good health results.

But herein lies the problem.

The standard western diet is very high in omega-6s, particularly LA and today we are imbibing this diet!

Especially in the past several decades, with the rise of LA-enriched cooking oils and processed foods,

our intake of omega-6s has skyrocketed.

In fact, the amount of omega-6s we ate 50 years ago represented about 1.5 percent of our calories.

Today, it’s an astounding 7-10 percent.

There is no single nutrient in the modern Western diet that has increased so dramatically over the past

50 years as omega-6 fatty acids.

Since omega-6 fatty acids are converted to pro-inflammatory molecules, several studies suggest that this high omega-6

-(and, comparatively speaking, low omega-3) intake is increasing our risk of systemic inflammation and inflammatory

-diseases—Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and asthma, to name a few.

Today, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is typically 10 to 1 or greater.

Ideally, your ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids should be closer to 2 to 1.

But with vegetable oils and processed foods so common in the standard American diet,

-even the most diligent dieter tends to consume way more omega-6s than necessary.

This imbalance both reduces the amount of omega-3s in circulation and in tissues and overrides the powerful

-and important benefits of omega-3s that you do get in your diet.


To tip the scales in favor of anti-inflammatory omega-3s, you need to limit processed foods and vegetable-based oils,

while at the same time consuming more of the omega-3 rich foods listed above.

?As an extra insurance policy, I take an omega-3 supplement everyday ? brain traumas such as concussions.

So you really need a good balance of both to reap their full health benefits.


I take an omega-3 formulation (taken every single day) that contains both compounds,

DHA and EPA in the right proportion, with confidence that I’m doing my heart, brain, and entire body a world of good.


Here is it?

The best formulation of Omega3 in the market to reverse Blood Omega 3 deficiency and begin to correct Omega 3: Omega 6 ratio

Look at this scientific study?

Why you need to take a good quality Omega 3:

Not all Fish oils/Omega 3 are equal. You need a high-quality one like the one I use, (don’t

-want to name the product cus they didn’t pay me for the advert)

Omega 3 made from the Arctic sea/Cold water fish which have fish with low mercury level and high omega 3 content…

It is produced using the cold process (unlike most commercially produced Omega 3 made with the hot-

-process that is faster but low-quality yield)!

The higher the BLOOD Omega 3 level, the lower the heart attack risk! Over 90% reduction!!!

A study was done and published in New England Journal of Medicine!!!

It is scientifically proven!
