Omega-3 Essential Fatty acids

Earth Cuisine for LongevityYears ago a Purdue University study showed kids low in omega-3 essential fatty acids are significantly more likely to be hyperactive, have learning disorders and display behavioral problems. Omega-3 deficiencies have also been linked to inflammatory diseases, neurological problems and heart disease. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is devoid of omega-3s, except certain type of fish. The human brain is 60% structural fat, just as muscles are made of protein and bones of calcium.But it’s not just any fat-it’s a certain type that we no longer eat. Green leafy vegetables, certain seeds and nuts and wild game are rich in omega-3s. Instead, we are consuming saturated fats and vegetable oils high in omega-6 fatty acids-all of which interferes with our body’s attempt to utilize the small amount of omega-3 which it does get. This problem is most severe for children whose brain is still developing. Their brain is struggling to use the other fats that it is getting, which are the wrong ones,and therefore the neural network develops slowly and is defective.The child now has learning, memory and behavioral problems. The answer is in the diet accompanied by supplementation.Supplementation would come in the form of Fish oil, krill oil and flax seed oil.

    Fermented cod liver oil to the rescue…check out greenpastures.com for some of the best, also with butter oil for vitamin K. We take it every day with our regular vitamins. It’s one of the best supplements, if not THE best that you can take.
