Our bodies function best when we eat foods similar to those eaten by our primitive ancestors—lean, wild meats, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, and a balanced supply of essential fats.
When it comes to essential fats, a healthy balance between the omega 3 and the omega 6 is necessary for good cellular health. And it needs to become a top priority for anyone who wants to look, feel and perform their best.
Unfortunately, omega 3 fats started to disappear from the American diet about 75 years ago. Instead of a 1:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fats, the average American now consumes a 15:1 ratio! With an EFA imbalance this severe, the body is forced to use inferior and/or heat-damaged oils to create and repair its cell membranes. Inflammation, fatigue, chronic pain and low energy are just a few of the unavoidable results.
