Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are nutrients required for many key functions in the human body including cell growth, brain development, muscle activity, immune function, joint health, and many others.* While some fatty acids can be produced inside the body, “essential” fatty acids cannot be produced by our bodies and we rely on the food we eat to supply us with these important nutrients. The most common of the essential fatty acids are omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Modern science suggests for optimal health, humans should consume a one-to-one ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids in the foods they eat. Unfortunately, due to the abundance of omega-6 fatty acids in vegetable oils and our increasing consumption of fried and fatty foods, the Western diet includes omega-6 fatty acids in a ratio as high as 15 to one. While our diets must include some omega-6 fatty acids as essential nutrients for life, the disproportionate consumption of omega-6 fatty acids, along with unhealthy hydrogenated or trans fats, has been linked to poor health. Studies also link low intake of omega-3 fatty acids to reduced mood and cognitive function.
