5 Power-Packed Oils for Improved Health!

Dietary fat has been plagued with a bad reputation for decades, as reduced-fat products hit the shelves and low-fat diets became the focus.

But wait a minute, how did scientists miss the fact that dietary fat as well as essential fatty acids are two critical components for good health, including nervous system health and brain function?

Fat plays a role in just about every aspect of health, right down to the very cells that make up your body. Fortunately, it’s easy to get the fat that you need, and your body is even able to create its own fatty acids to prevent deficiency.

There are certain types of fatty acids, however, that you must get through your diet as your body is not able to produce them. That’s exactly why these are known as ‘essential fatty acids’! Getting enough of these healthy fats in your diet is crucial for maintaining optimal heath and preventing deficiency.

Questions & Answers On Essential Fats

9 ‘FAQs’ on Essential Fatty Acids & their Benefits!

Basically, there are two essential fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-3. These two fats are termed “essential” because they cannot be produced by the body, and must therefore be obtained from the diet or from a supplemental source if you want to stay healthy.

Unlike other non-essential fats, the body uses essential fatty acids to maintain proper growth, cell formation and optimising functional needs, rather than for fuel. This means they do not get stored as fat in your fat cells.

Once we get into nutrient deficiency, it does not take long for the body to protest, reminding us to slow down, get more rest, eat right and supplement. In order to remain robust, energetic and healthy, we need a variety of nutrients. These include amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, lipids and fatty acids. Essential fatty acids work best in the presence of ample amounts of vitamins A, B3, B6, C and E and the minerals magnesium and zinc.

Many assert that a perfect balance of nutrients can be achieved by following a diet in which protein, carbohydrate and fat are maintained in certain strict proportions. The Western Price Foundation in ‘Tripping Lightly Down the Prostaglandin Pathways’ says this is a highly simplistic view of the complex interactions of the body, one which does not take into account individual requirements for macro and micro nutrients, nor of imbalances that may be caused by nutritional deficiencies, environmental stress or genetic defects.

Because our modern lifestyle leaves almost everyone with some sort of nutrient deficiency everyone could benefit with and increase of healthy fats. What we do know, is that they are “essential”.

Here are nine frequently asked questions on essential fatty acids … and the answers.
