The Ratio

The essential fatty acids from both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids serve as building blocks for other fatty acids and substances in the body. It is almost impossible to look at these substances individually because they always interact with each other. Among other things, it is about the formation of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory substances (so-called eicosanoids).

Relevant here is the existence of a balance.

And that’s the name of the “Omega-6 / Omega-3 fatty acid ratio”. This is unfortunately imbalanced by the western diet today because while one often observes a ratio of 1:1 to 2:1 in the diet of primates, it is up to 20:1 in humans in the industrialised nations.

Which foods contain Omega-3?

The OMEGA-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are found mainly in high-fat fish species (cold-water wild fish) and seafood.

Omega-6 / Omega-3

Today, the Omega-6 / Omega-3 ratio in the typical western diet is between 10:1 and 20:1. This means that we consume up to 20 times more Omega-6 fatty acids than Omega-3 fatty acids. An imbalance between Omega-6 and Omega-3 can increase the risk of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes or obesity.

> 10:1

You can achieve health improvements by achieving an Omega-6 / Omega-3 ratio of less than 5:1.

< 5:1

The Test

Testing your Omega-3 and Omega-6 ratio

Using a simple blood sample that you can do yourself at home and then send in the pre-paid envelope, you can quickly find out how much Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids you have in your body, both before and after several months of EQ Pure Arctic Oil use. You will find the corresponding test kit in our store.
