Essential fatty acids (efa's)


 
Health
Essential Fatty Acids are oils, omega-3 and omega-6, that you can find, in certain amounts, in all oils that you can purchase in most the health food and regular grocery stores. These fatty acids are called essential because you cannot create them in your body and your cells use them every day.

If you do not eat enough of these oils… guess what… you’re going to get sick. What kind of sick? The list is quite extensive and it depends on your deficiency.

* Acne * ADD/ADHD * Alzheimer’s disease * Arthritis * Asthma * Cancer * Diabetes * Eczema * Eye diseases * Growth retardation * Hair loss * Heart disease * High blood pressure * Immune dysfunction * Kidney deterioration * Kidney deterioration * Memory loss * Psoriasis * Schizophrenia

It’s a good idea not to be short on these fatty acids, because this list is still not complete.

80% of the American people will come down with serious illness because of nutritional deficiencies

It is not enough to eat essential fatty acid randomly. They need to be eaten in balance. You will need to balance the Omega-3 with the Omega-6. Most people are eating around 15 tablespoons of Omega-6 to 1 tablespoon of Omega-3. If you are one of these persons then expect to be harboring or creating one of the diseases listed above

What are Essential Fatty Acids?

There are four important types of Essential Fatty Acids:

* Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) or Omega-3 Oil * Linoleic Acid (LA) or Omega-6 Oil * Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) * Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)

The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are found in everyday oils that you use for cooking, baking, and eating.

* Flax seed oil – contains four times more omega-3 than omega-6 * Perilla seed oil – contains three-four more omega-3 than omega-6 * Hemp oil – contain the ideal ratio of 4:1, four times more omega-6 to omega-3. * Pumpkin oil – contains 3 times more omega-6 than omega-3 * Walnut oil contain ten times more omega-6 than omega-3 * Safflower – has no omega-3 and 75% of its oil is omega-6 * Sunflower – has no omega-3 and 65% of its oil is omega-6 * Wheat germ oil – slight amount of omega-3 but mostly omega-6 * Olive oil – no omega-3 and 8% of its oil is omega-6 * Corn oil – contains mostly omega- 6

You can see that most oils have very little omega-3. This is why you hear a lot about flax seeds and flax seed oil because they are high in omega-3.

In recent years, a new source of omega-3 was found in the seeds of the Perilla frutescens plant. Perilla oil was found not to cause digestive upset when used in large quantities. This oil is similar to flax seed oil in content except that 19% of it oil is saturated compared to 7% for flax seed oil.

It’s cheaper to buy perilla it in liquid form, since one tablespoon contains 7700 mg of omega-3 and one capsule contains 550 mg.

It is best to alternate between oils, using one bottle at a time of flax, perilla, and hemp oil. In this way you will get the benefits that the different oils have to give.

When buying your oils, try to buy them in dark bottles. This prevents oxidation from occurring and assures that you get active and fresh oils that contain strong levels of omega oils.

Other sources of omega-3 oil are,

* Flax seeds * Chia seeds * Pumpkin seeds * Walnuts * Dark greens * Soy products

Limit your use of soy products. These products use up your body’s minerals and have been associated various body diseases. They cause fibrin to settles in your tissues and organs. Fibrin tends to clog up your organs and causes arteries to close off when you’re short on systemic enzymes.

Fish are also high in omega-3 oil. Include these in your diet by eating them at least once a week. The fish to eat are,

* Salmon * Sardines * Halibut * Trout * Albacore tuna * Mackerel

Add the essential fatty acids to your eating habits everyday and gain the benefit of a better life.
