Western diets contain very little omega-3, not only because we do not eat adequate amounts of oily fish but because hydrogenation, the process used to give foods a long shelf life, removes them. This process also inhibit the body's conversion of omega-6 to GLA and CLA. In addition, changes in farming practices have meant that meat and dairy products contains less plant omegas 3 and 6.
Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish as well as plant oils. It is important to maintain an appropriate balance of omega-3 and omega-6 in the diet as these two substances work together to promote health. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development.
Omega 3 oils have been the subject of a multitude of scientific studies showing that they not only promote cardiovascular health, but also mood and cognition, as well as skin conditions.
Omega 6 oils are involved in a complex interaction that leads to the production of prostoglandins in the body. The body uses prostoglandins to control inflammation, dilate blood vessels and regulate immune function.
