Fat for better health

Posted by nutritionist 15/12/2017 0 Comment(s) weight and diet,diabetes management,

Did you know that eating the right amount of dietary fatty acids makes you healthier, not fatter? 

Both Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids present in food are beneficial to our health. However when Omega-6 is too high, it can contribute to excess inflammation in the body, potentially raising the risk of many diseases, such as diabetesmetabolic syndrome, cardiovascular diseases and so on. There is approximately 4-6 times more excess amount of Omega 6 in vegetable oils we are eating daily such as corn oil, sunflower oil and soybean oil, some margarine is also high in Omega 6. While consuming more Omega 3 fatty acids in fact has a positive effect on cholesterol level and it reduces inflammation. Make sure you are aware of the fat you are eating every day, replenish food high in Omega 3 or with a balanced ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6(approximatedly Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids ratio is 2:1). To boost omega 3 fatty acids intake naturally, one can eat fatty fish at least two times a week. If you are vegetarian, select more nuts and oils high in Omega 3 such, walnuts, flax seeds and camelina oil.
