Why You Need Omega-3
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, meaning it’s required for human health, however, it cannot be manufactured by the body. For this reason, Omega-3 must be obtained from food, but most people don’t get enough omega-3 fats in their diet. A deficiency in these fats can contribute to serious mental and physical health problems.
The Omega-6 to Omega-3 Balance
Omega-6 is another essential fatty acid that is required for human health. However, because Omega-6 is primarily sourced from corn, soy, canola, safflower, and sunflower oils; which dominate the standard American diet, our ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 is often very imbalanced. A ratio high in Omega-6 promotes inflammation, blood clotting and constricts blood vessels, in fact, many scientists believe that one reason there is a high incidence of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, premature aging, and some cancer forms today is this profound omega-6 to omega-3 imbalance.
The ideal ratio between Omega-6 and Omega-3 that is crucial for health is 1:1. A one-to-one ratio promotes less inflammation, less constrictive blood vessels and prevents clot formation, all important functions in preventing many diseases.
Today’s common diet ratio is approximately 20:1 – 50:1. Because the typical American diet consists of too many omega-6 fats and very little omega-3, supplementing with a high-quality Omega-3 is usually necessary. Clary Sage Seed Oil has an ideal fatty acid ratio composition of 1:4.5.
