Why do I need more EPA & DHA Omega-3 fatty acids?

Both omega-6s and omega-3s are essential fatty acids. According to experts and the world health Organization, the optimal ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 is approximately 5:1. The average American’s ratio ranges from 12 – 18:1. Typical western diet is to blame. Our food supply contains an abundance of omega-6 fatty acids from vegetable oils such as corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, olive oil and meat. Many metabolic/physiological functions depend on a balanced ratio between these two essential fatty acids. It is recommended that people try to improve this ratio as good health depends on it. To achieve optimum balance, we should attempt to consume fewer omega-6s (vegetable oil and meat) and more omega-3s (fish and fish oil).
