TOOLS for FOOD CHOICES
Omega 3-6 Balance Scores show the likely impact of a food item on your body’s HUFA balance. Use apps to plan meals, shop or talk about foods with friends. Replace foods that have negative scores with foods having more positive scores.
PEOPLE MAKE DIFFERENT FOOD CHOICES
Traditional ethnic foods have different balances of essential fatty acids. The foods lead to different proportions (25% to 85%) of omega-6 stored in body HUFA. Remember to NIX the 6 and EAT the 3.
OMEGA 3 & 6 EFA LINK FOOD TO HEALTH
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) are stored in the body as highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA), and HUFA form potent hormones (eicosanoids) that alter health. Many co-morbidities have more n-6 than n-3 HUFA.
EFA RESEARCH STORIES
How we got to “NIX6 and EAT3”. Research results on essential fatty acids (EFA) and their balance. EFA-based hormone-like molecules act with both benefit and harm. Balancing 6 and 3 has important outcomes.
The USDA and the HHS make Dietary Guidelines about food intake. Omega-6 in the absence of omega-3 nutrients has a very narrow therapeutic window. Lower health risk links to lower proportions of n-6 in HUFA. Get a healthy balance of essential fatty acids as you NIX6 and EAT3.
