HEALTH PEARL #815
I have talked before about the essential fats OMEGA-3 and OMEGA-6. This means they are “essential” for our body.
However, we cannot make them ourselves; so, we need them from an outside source.
Fish offers the highest amount of OMEGA-3s, with flax and chia seeds as secondary sources.
And OMEGA-6s are primarily found in nuts, seeds, grains, and beans.
I’ve also mentioned that OMEGA-3’s are always anti-inflammatory, while too many OMEGA-6s in our diet can become inflammatory.
Recent studies now have revealed that the active fat in OMEGA-6, called GLA (or Gamma Linolenic Acid), when given in the right amounts, can help to significantly reduce pain in people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, chronic low-grade inflammation, Osteoporosis, some cancers, atopic dermatitis, and acute respiratory distress.
So, if you suffer pain from any of these, come-in and try some high-potency OMEGA-6 GLA …at the Gesundheit! Nutrition Center on North 19th Avenue.
