For years we have been told to cut down on the amount of fat we eat, but the most recent research has suggested that it is not how much fat we consume, but the types of fat that are important. Fat is essential for our body to function properly. In fact, it plays a critical role in the function of every cell in the body. Therefore, we should be most concerned with lowering the amount of “bad” fats and increasing the amount of “good” fats we consume for optimal health. Most consumers are aware that scientists and nutrition experts agree the consumption of saturated fats in the diet should be limited. Polyunsaturated fatty acids are vital for normal life functions, but since they cannot be made in the human body, they must be supplied through the diet.
Two types of polyunsaturated fats, omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids, are vital for such
basic functions as energy production, cell membrane formation and proper hemoglobin manufacturing. When the body is in short supply of these essential acids, a myriad of problems can arise including fatigue, immune weakness, gastrointestinal disorders, heart and circulatory problems, reduced growth rate and more. It is also likely that a deficiency in these fatty acids plays an important role in the development of many common diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis and asthma. To put it plainly, these fatty acids are “essential.”
Nutrition experts believe the body functions best with a 1:1 or 2:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. However, the average diet supplies an overabundance of omega-6 fatty acids by at least 10:1. Since most of us consume sufficient omega-6 fatty acids (mostly from vegetable oils), the focus should be on obtaining more omega-3 fatty acids. There are two main types of omega-3 fatty acids that warrant the most attention when considering omega-3 supplementation. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is a direct precursor to beneficial hormone-like compounds called eicosanoids, important regulators of vital body functions.* Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is especially vital for the health of nerve tissues in the brain, eyes and retina. Our bodies need a balance of both of these types of omega-3s to reach peak nutrition. The most common dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids are cold-water fish such as mackerel, herring, halibut and salmon. Because so few of us eat a significant amount of these fish on a regular basis, most modern diets do not come close to supplying the body with adequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
Flaxseed oil is a secondary source of omega-3 fatty acids, although there are compelling reasons to choose fish oils over flaxseed oil. Flaxseed oil is a good source of alpha-linolenic acids (ALA). This type of omega-3 is a medium chain omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a precursor of EPA and DHA, the long chain omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil. In order to utilize ALA, the body must first convert it to EPA and DHA through a process that is relatively inefficient. Approximately 10 times more ALA must be consumed than EPA and DHA to achieve the same effects. It is difficult for the digestive system to break down raw flaxseeds sufficiently in the first place. In addition, unlike fish oil capsules, flaxseed oil capsules turn rancid very quickly and should therefore be refrigerated.
In order to reach the greatest level of benefit from Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, you need a high-quality fish oil supplement that meets industry, safety and purity standards, and that’s also effectively balanced in EPA and DHA fatty acids.
