Scientists estimate that our ancestors consumed Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats in a ratio of close to 1:1 which is ideal.
Omega-6 fats are inflammatory, omega-3s are anti-inflammatory, and for you to be healthy, this ratio MUST be balanced.
It is literally one of the most important numbers of your body, yet when was the last time your doctor checked this for you? (In fact, do they even know about this number?)
However, as vegetable oil consumption (soy, corn, safflower, sunflower, processed foods, non-grass-fed animal protein, etc.) and processed grain consumption have risen, so has the ratio of Omega-6s to Omega3s.
As I mentioned, the ideal ratio should be 1:1, and no more than 4:1, yet the research shows the average American has 19x more pro-inflammatory Omega-6 fats compared to the anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fats.
And in many cases, this ratio is 25:1, and I have even seen 50:1!
In fact, in a study of murders and patients in insane asylums, they found the average Omega-6 / Omega-3 ratio to be 70:1!
Since the brain is 60% fat, the Omega-6 fats have inflamed the brain so much, it has literally taken their brains out!
Excessive intake of omega-6s and inadequate intake of omega-3s predispose us to an exaggerated inflammatory response, which is at the core of every healthy condition from fatigue, bad skin, poor digestion, to chronic disease.
While we need to pay more attention to these acidic foods that are increasing our Omega-6 fats…
It is also CRITICAL for the average adult to take 3,000mg of Omega-3 Fish Oil EVERY SINGLE DAY!
It will help you balance your Omega-6 / Omega-3 ratio, regulate healthy cholesterol, and keep inflammation
levels at bay in your brain and your body.
