Omega-3 fatty acids like omega-6 are an essential type of polyunsaturated fat, considered essential, although the body cannot produce them. Therefore, they must be incorporated through foods, such as fish, nuts and vegetable oils like canola and sunflower oils.
WHAT TYPES OF OMEGA-3 AND 6 FATTY ACIDS ARE THERE?
They correct imbalances in the modern diets that bring health problems. A diet rich in omega-3&6 fatty acids can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke and cancer; it also reduces LDL or "bad" cholesterol.
ALA - A diet rich in ALA helps prevent coronary heart disease and stroke by lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels, improving the elasticity of blood vessels and preventing the buildup of harmful fatty deposits on artery walls. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has reported that the diet of most Americans no longer contains the amount of omega-3s that the body needs for maintaining a good health condition and general well-being of the body.
AEP/ADH - A diet rich in AEP and ADH contributes to brain and eye development, prevents cardiovascular disease; it can also help prevent Alzheimer's disease. For example, diets especially rich in ADH have been reported to promote protection against retinal degenerative processes and to increase problem-solving ability in nine-month-old infants. A 10-year research correlated a higher intake of ADH/AEP by various segments of the population with the relative risk of death from coronary heart disease. Those who increased ADH/AEP intake up to 664 mg/day were associated with an approximately 40% reduction in the rate of cardiovascular disease and a significant reduction in the overall mortality rate. Currently, all infant formulas contain supplemental ADH.
Most of them are incorporated into the diet through plant-based oils; for example, linoleic acid. Excessive consumption of this acid can lead to inflammation and cause coronary heart disease, cancer, asthma, arthritis and depression.
OMEGA-3 AND OMEGA-6 FATTY ACIDS: LOOKING FOR THE BALANCE
In a diet balanced in omega-3 and omega-6, both substances can work together for the health benefit. The consumption of these acids without a correct balance and of omega-6 fatty acids in excessive amounts produces inflammation and can contribute to the development of diseases; for example, of a coronary character, cancer and arthritis.
In a healthy diet the proportion of omega-6 acids should be approximately two to four times higher than that of omega-3. In a standard American diet, the proportion of omega-6 fatty acids can be 11 to 30 times higher than omega-3, facilitating the increased rate of inflammatory disorders in the United States.
