Let's talk about how to balance your ratio of omega-fatty acids and why you need to do this in the first place.

The average person's diet is way too high in omega-6 fatty acids and too low in omega-3 fatty acids. The ideal ratio of omega-6 fatty acids to omega-3 fatty acids is 1:1. However, the average ratio of these fatty acids for Americans is about 20:1.

If you're deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, you could have cognitive issues or problems with your eyes. Men may also experience problems with low testosterone and fertility.

Having high omega-6 fatty acids and low omega-3 fatty acids may potentially lead to:
• Stiff red blood cells
• Thick blood
• Obesity (visceral fat)
• Insulin resistance or diabetes
• Inflammation
• Thrombus
• Vasospasm
• Vasoconstriction

The best and easiest way to balance your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is to increase your omega-3 fatty acids. Adding omega-3 fatty acids to your diet is even more important than removing the omega-6 fatty acids.

Both fish oil and cod liver oil are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids. But, cod liver oil also has vitamin D and vitamin A. Algae is an excellent vegan source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Here are a few more ways to balance this ratio:
• Replace your salad dressing with olive oil
• Avoid fried foods from restaurants
• Consume fatty fish 2 to 3 times per week
• Consume grass-fed beef
• Limit the amount of chicken and grain-fed animal products you consume
• Consume walnuts
