The body requires all kinds of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins for optimum health. And in the Standard American Diet (SAD), none are more deficient than Omega-3 Fatty Acids. An array of critical bodily processes are dependent on these fats for proper function, particularly in the immune system and brain. From concentration to managing inflammation, peak performance to cardiovascular health, and even fertility, Omega 3 Health is a cornerstone of your vitality and well-being.
When it comes to eating healthy fats and oils, what most people don’t realize is that the ratio of the right kinds of fats is what’s really important.
Most experts agree that a ratio of 3 or 4:1 of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is ideal, but most people’s actual intake is more like 20:1, more than 10 times what is necessary.
Unfortunately, many of our sources for healthy Omega-3s are poor: degraded by our food systems, by our polluted environment, by the lack of choices available in restaurants and grocery stores. Unless you’re paying vigilant attention to your dietary fat intake, you’re probably out of balance.
You probably need more Omega-3s.
This is where supplementation can make all the difference.
