Eat The Good Fats

Not All Fats Are Created Equal

Essential fatty acids or EFA’s, are among the good for you fats, and are necessary for maintaining a glowing complexion and optimal overall health.

But since your body doesn’t produce them on its own, you have to get them through your diet. Without them, you may experience depression, fatigue, dry or itchy skin, brittle hair and nails, the inability to concentrate, and even joint pain.

Powerful Omega-3 Fats

Omega-3’s have been studied extensively and show that they play a big role in reducing inflammation within our bodies. There’s almost no end to the good that kind of benefit brings, but here’s list of some of the strongest reasons to include more Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet –

  • Reducing cardiovascular disease
  • Preventing your blood from clotting excessively.
  • Lowering cholesterol and triglycerides from bloodstream
  • Increasing activity of a chemical called Nitric Oxide located in our endothelial cells to help your arteries relax and dilate. This reduces joint pain.
  • Decreasing bouts of depression
  • Helping prevent cancer cell growth

Don’t Leave Out Omega-6 Fats Entirely

A healthy diet is one that contains both omega-3’s and omega-6’s. The omega-6’s are easy to find in foods such as refined vegetable oils that are used in making cookies, crackers, and sweets. What we need to do is aim for a more advantageous balance of fats in our regular diet with the omega-3’s exceeding the mega-6’s.

Excessive amounts of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and a very high omega-6:omega-3 ratio lead to many diseases that may otherwise be prevented or made manageable.   Omega-6’s have been shown to actually promote inflammation within the body.

Since American diets tend to be heavy on sources of omega-6’s and are lacking enough omega-3’s, we need to include more healthy fats in our diets and keep a closer eye on the food we are eating every day.
