Rather than get really technical and bore you to death with long chemical words, there are two fatty acids that are considered. “essential”. One is omega-3 (alpha-linoleic acid) and the other is omega-6 (linoleic acid).
Both are polyunsaturated oils and are considered “essential” because the body cannot produce them on its own, despite the body needing them for many functions. Because of this we must make sure that we get enough of these “essentials”.
Omega-6s are easier to get through various oils like corn, safflower and sunflower. It is, however, most important to make sure that we get adequate intakes of omega-3s for many, many reasons.
Inflammation reduction, preventing excessive blood clotting, maintaining cell membrane fluidity, lowering the amounts of fats such as cholesterol and triglycerides circulating in the bloodstream, decrease thickening in the arteries, causing the arteries to dilate and relax, minimize arthrosclerosis, reduce the risk of obesity by stimulating the secretion of leptin, the hormone that helps to regulate food intake, body weight and metabolism, and helps to prevent the growth of cancer cells.
In a more practical approach, looking at what conditions or symptoms in the body would indicate a need for more omega-3s, we find that depression, cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, fatigue, dry itchy skin, brittle hair and nails, inability to concentrate and joint pain to be the more prevalent.
Adding insult to injury we add Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, ADHD, migraine headaches, and multiple sclerosis.
What I find extremely interesting is that the combination of omega-3s and organic sulfur crystals, B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium and zinc will keep you amazingly healthy.
But omega-3s, like polyunsaturated oils, are damaged from heat, light and air. When exposed to these for too long rancidity occurs. Not only is the flavor and smell altered but also the creation of free radicals is increased. So, polyunsaturated fatty acids must be stored in dark glass, tightly closed containers in the refrigerator or freezer.
What’s funny about this is that the people who simply want to make a buck tell us that salmon is the best source of omega-3s. For you guys that eat salmon, don’t you usually cook it before you eat it?
The very best source of omega-3s are chia seeds, which have a density value percentage of 609.7 (the DV% of salmon is 87.1), followed by flax seeds (146.2%) and walnuts (94.6%), In addition, chia seeds have 6 times more calcium than milk, 3 times more iron than spinach, 2 times more potassium than bananas, 15 times more magnesium than broccoli, 2 times more fiber than bran flakes, 6 times more protein than kidney beans, 9 times more phosphorus than whole milk and more antioxidants than blueberries.
The bottom line is that the plant world will keep you well, as long as you consume as much organic as you can and stay away from GMOs, and the flesh world will drag you down and make and keep you ill.
Keep your money in your own pocket and stop giving it to a person that will give you repeated prescriptions for synthetic chemicals that will give you other symptoms you never had before and which the politicians have passed laws against you suing for what happens to you from ingesting these deadly synthetic chemicals.
