OMEGA 3 BENEFITS
Understanding (AA) Arachidonic
Acid - (Omega 6 – Pro Inflammatory Fat)
There are two types of fats that fall into the category
of "good" fats. These are the monounsaturated fats and
the long chain omega 3 fats. You get monounsaturated fats from
olive oil, selected nuts and avacados. Long chain omega 3 fats
come from fish and fish oils. These are exceptionally powerful
allies in your quest for a longer and healthier life.
However, there are some fats you want to restrict in your diet.
These are saturated fats, trans fats and (AA) arachidonic acid.
I consider these to be really "bad" fats. Arachidonic
acids are found primarily in fatty red meats, egg yolks and organ
meats. This particular polyunsaturaed fat may be the most dangerous
fat know when consumed in excess and is known as an Omega 6 fat.
In fact, you can inject virtually every type of fat (even saturated
fat and cholesterol) into rabbits and nothing happens. However,
if you inject (AA) arachidonic acid into the same rabbits they
are dead within three minutes. The human body needs "some"
arachidonic acid, but too much can be toxic.
Ironically, the higher your insulin levels, the more your body
is stimulated to make increased levels of arachidonic acid. (AA)
is a long-chain omega-6 fatty acid. Enchaned production of good
eicosanoids requires the presence of EPA and DHA long chain "omega
3" fats, found in Ultra Refined fish oil.
Remember, long chain omega-6 fatty acids (found in high concentrations
in vegetable oils) are the building blocks used to manufacture
"bad" eicosanoids. The balance of good and bad eicosanoids
will be the primary factor determining your physical and mental
As you may have already guessed, fish oils are rich in long chain
omega 3 fats. Central to my wellness plan are the long chain omega
3 fats called EPA and DHA. DHA is the needed fat for the brain,
whereas EPA is the key fat for your heart and overall health.
Utlra Refined omega 3 is rich in both.
