“It not only plays a vital role in the health of the membrane of every cell in our body, it also helps protect us from a number of key health threats” says Laurie Tansman, a nutritionist at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.
Because our bodies cannot manufacture Omega 3, we have to get it from the foods we eat. Gleaning enough Omega 3 from the average American diet is difficult and there is another tricky challenge to the Omega 3 dilemma; maintaining the proper balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6. These essential fatty acids work in tandem to perform important physiological functions and guard against many chronic conditions.
Many dietitians now recommend a ratio of 4 parts Omega 3 to 1 part Omega 6. The typical diet contains 20 times more Omega 6 than Omega 3! Clearly, most people have a long way to go to correct the imbalance.
If your great-grandmother gave each of her children a spoonful of cod liver oil every day, she instinctively understood the critical necessity of Omega 3. If you want your family to get enough Omega 3, you could give them fish oil in liquid or capsules (-Keep a few tins of Altoids on hand) or, you could give them Xocai Chocolate Omega Squares.
Xocai Omega Squares have 200mg of DHA and EPA per three 11 gram squares. If you enjoy Xocai Chocolate Omega Squares daily, you can eventually correct the Omega 3-Omega 6 imbalance in your body.
The following information about Omega 3 is from the Harvard School of Public Health:
“Omega 3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
