omega-6 to omega-3 ratio

Omega-6 promotes inflammation, vessel constriction, blood clotting, pain, airway constriction and more, while omega-3 promotes anti-inflammatory effects, blood vessel dilation, a decrease in pain, airway dilation, blood cell fluidity (increased hormone communication) and more. This ratio in most individuals is upwards of 16:1 omega-6 to omega-3 causing as you can already understand, predominant effects of inflammation, blood vessel constriction, pain, airway constriction, and more. Both omega's are important, but keep this in mind when planning your next meal. A healthy range for omega-6 to omega-3 is between 4:1 to 1:1.
Balance your life!
