Eating the right fats is now essential for optimum health. The good fats include the two essential fats: Omega- 3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) also called super polyunsaturated, and Omega-6 Linoleic Acid (LA), more commonly known as polyunsaturated fat.

These fats are essential because our bodies cannot exist without them and most importantly, they must come from food. A serious deficiency of either results in progressively poorer health. For these reasons, healthy fat is every bit as important as protein, minerals and vitamins. Essential fats act as lubricants, cushions and insulators, guarding against the stresses that we encounter. They provide structural rigidity to cell membranes, and specifically in the case of the Omega-3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), provide a range of anti-inflammatory benefits.

To reverse the present imbalance many people have, we need to increase consumption of oils rich in Omega-3 fatty acids - Flaxseed (52-62%), Fish Oil (30%) and Cod Liver Oil (up to 25%), and reduce Omega-6 oils - Safflower, Sunflower, Sesame, Peanut, most other vegetable oils and fatty meats. The ultimate objective is to have an equal (1:1) ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
