What are Essential Fats?

Scientists have given essential fats their name because the body must have them to survive, but cannot synthesize them from any other substance we eat, so a direct food source is required. Hence the name essential. There are many kinds of fats but only two kinds of essential fats, Omega 3 Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and Omega 6 Linoleic Acid (LA), both of which are unsaturated fats. Each EFA is turned into several derivatives by the body, provided enough undamaged Omega 3 and Omega 6 are supplied in the right ratio. All other fats, such as Omega 9 (monounsaturated), Omega 7 and saturated fat are non-essential because the body can produce them from sugars and starches.


Getting the Omega 3 and Omega 6 balance right

Flax oil is an excellent source of omega 3 ALA but is a poor source of omega 6 LA. Flax is considered to be too rich in omega 3 for the long-term and can lead to omega 6 deficiency because omega 3 and omega 6 EFAs compete for enzyme space in our cells. That is why it is important to move onto a balanced blend of Omega 3 and 6 once your Omega 3 levels have increased. Although it is generally considered that the western diet contains enough omega 6, they generally come from poor, damaged sources. Today’s main sources of omega 6 are cooking oils and margarines, which have been processed heavily with harsh chemicals to ensure a long shelf life. This has left us in the situation where although we do get some omega 6 intake, it is damaged to the extent where it is now harmful, rather than beneficial to health.  Therefore, once you have built up your Omega 3 intake, maintain it daily with Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend.


This means that flax oil is an excellent choice for those who already have quality omega 6 sources in their diet or for those wanting to build their omega 3 levels before switching to a balanced blend. A period of around 3 months will be sufficient for most people to build up their Omega 3 levels sufficiently. Bodybuilders who are dieting for competition and trying to release as much stored fat as possible, will gain most benefit from flax alone for the final 3-4 weeks before competition.
