Omega Eating Habits
Although we’re encouraged to eat a variety of foods each day so they can work together, reducing the risks of preventable diseases. Different foods have different nutritional benefits, by eating a variety of foods makes it more likely that adequate portions of all the essential nutrients are consumed. This goes for consuming a variety of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids foods, however getting the right balance of the 2 fatty acids is the tough part, because omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids both use up the same enzymes and transport systems to produce systems to produce biochemicals in the body. *When there are more omega-6 fats, greater amounts of inflammatory compounds are created, and lesser enzymes will be available for omega-3 fats to create chemicals that are anti-inflammatory. What’s even more interesting is that high levels of omega-6 fatty acids can actually reduce and replace omega-3 fats.
