What are "Omega-3" and "Omega-6" fatty acids?
Omega-3 and omega-6 are families of essential fatty acids used to make local hormones that control the local functioning of tissues throughout the body. The omega-6 fats tend to have pro-inflammatory effects, and the omega-3s tend to have non-inflammatory effects. We need to have a balanced intake of mega-6s and omega-3s for optimal health. The essential fatty acids include the omega-6 fatty acids, (as found in most common vegetable oils and products from livestock animals raised on grain, and the omega-3 fatty acids, as found in flaxseed oil, wild ocean fish, wild game, products from livestock raised on green vegetation, and fish oil). Most people consume too much omega-6 fats and insufficient omega-3s. Therefore, we need to decrease the intake of omega-6 sources and increase the intake of omega-3 sources.
What is flax oil and is it the same as flaxseed oil?
Yes, flaxseed oil and flax oil are the same. The seeds of the flax plant are pressed to obtain the nutrient rich oil that they contain. Flax oil is classified as a polyunsaturated vegetable oil. Flax oil is unique in this category, because it is the richest source of omega-3 as well as containing omega-6.
