What are the Differences Between Omega 6 and Omega 3 Fatty Acids?

There are two fatty acids people are talking about: Omega 3 and Omega 6. In 
general, you need both of these fatty acids, but finding the balance is important for optimal body function. Omega 3 can be found in things like flax seeds or walnuts, but the highest concentration you can consume comes from seafood or wild, fatty fish. This is because there is an acid called ALA that is found in things like flax seeds which the body converts to DHA and EPA fatty acids. If you are eating fatty fish like salmon, the Omega 3 will already be converted to DHA and EPA for use in your body.


Omega 6, on the other hand, can be found in seed oils like peanuts, sunflower, and sesame. Omega 6 is most notably found in corn, which is used in some shape or form in almost everything on store shelves. We use corn for sweetener, we feed it to our livestock, and it is a filler in nearly everything we eat. There are many reasons to love corn, but the amount of Omega 6 we are taking in is out of proportion, which can lead to inflammation. If you’re anything like most Americans, you are getting more than enough Omega 6 and not much Omega 3 fatty acid in your diet, which can lead to illness and issues like diabetes and heart disease.


Some of the benefits of getting the right proportion of Omega 3 include increased brain function, vision, a better attention span, reduced inflammation, optimal heart function, and a stronger immune system. Until now the only way to get the Omega 3 you need was to eat copious amounts of fish and walnuts or take large smelly fish oil pills. There are many reasons why those solutions may not be perfect for your lifestyle, but it is still important to make getting the right amount of Omega 3 a priority for your diet.
