You may be deficient in Essential fatty acids

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACID

Must be obtained through the diet because the body cannot make them

Omega 3 From fish and oils

ALA (ALPHA-LINOLENIC-ACID) = flax (linseed), pumpkin, walnuts

Converts to:

EPA =Eicopsapentaenoc acid (fish oil) physical

DHA = docosahexaenoic Acid (fish oil) mental

Omega 3 –

  • Anti inflammation (plus good for crohns disease)

  • Cardiovascular

  • Pregnancy and lactation. Low levels = pre-eclampsia in pregnant women

  • Dysmenorrhea (anti inflammatory)

  • Brain health DHA comprises of 25% of the brain. Low amounts = memory loss, visual and other neurological conditions

  • Auto-Immune. Many involve inflammatory processes eg rheumatoid arthritis

Omega 6 from borage oil

LA (LINOLEIC ACID) = nuts and seeds

Converts to:

GLA = gamma-linolenic-acid (evening primrose, borage oil)

DGLA = dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (breast milk)

Omega 6

  • Anti inflammation (prostaglandin series 1) Better results when combined with omega 3

  • Pre-menstrual syndrome. When converted to GLA, then prostaglandins (hormone like substances)

  • Menorrhagia (heavy periods) Plus reduce meat and dairy products
