The benefits of the fatty acids found in omega 3-6-9 are now well understood. While our body has the ability to produce omega 9, critical for heart health, omega-3 and omega-6 are two types of fats considered “essential” as they cannot be manufactured by the body; therefore they have to be provided by a good diet or supplementation. However, it can often prove difficult to achieve through our diet, adequate levels and forms of each kind of fatty acid. Omega-6 fatty acids tend to be over-supplied while omega-3 fatty acids are under supplied in modern Western Diet, especially in vegetarian diets.
Besides, due to industrial food oil production, most omega-6 fatty acids in the diet come from poor quality vegetable oils such as soybean oil or corn oil which tend to promote inflammation. It is becoming increasingly clear that the profound imbalance between our intake of poor quality omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids can have dire consequences such a higher incidence of heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and premature ageing.
One of the biggest challenges for our diet, especially for the vegan and vegetarian diet, is getting a proper balance of healthy fats.
