Omega-3 and Omega-6, also known as essential fatty acids are on the tip of everyone’s tongue. What exactly are they, where do they come from and how do they help?
We need to keep the intake balanced because the essential fatty acids compete with each other in our bodies for enzymes. If you eat too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3, only omega-6 will be metabolised and your body won’t be able to use the omega-3 fatty acids. Such an imbalance can result in diseases.
