Omega 3,6,9: Potentially one of the missing elements in your healthy journey


Omega-3s are essential fatty acids and need to be consumed through food or supplement. They help with your heart and decrease cellular inflammation.


Omega-3s are primarily found in vegetable oils, nuts (especially walnuts), flax seeds, flaxseed oil, and leafy vegetables, seafood, fatty fish and shellfish.


Omega-3s help with weight loss by stimulates secretion of leptin, a hormone that decreases appetite and promotes the burning of fat.


Omega-6 fatty acids are found in most vegetable oils, including sunflower, corn, and canola oils, as well as meats, such as chicken, pork, and beef


There is no need to supplement with Omega-6s because most people already consume Omega-6s in their day to day diet, so you don’t want to go out of your way to consume more of them because they will throw off your 3 to 6 ratio.


Omega-6’s are pro-inflammatory in cells so you want to have a good balance of 3s to neutralise the inflammation.


The omega-6s are also a critical fuel for reigniting sluggish mitochondria, the energy engines in our cells


omega-6s help stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and maintain the reproductive system.


Omega-9s are a pro anti-inflammatory element and aren’t considered essential, so the body makes them as long as you are consuming 3’s and 6’s.


9s play a role in utilising fat as fuel.


During a day you should get a higher omega-3 consumption, if you are healthy, 200–500 milligrams of DHA and EPA per day is recommended.


Overall you want to consume 1000-2000 of Omega 3,6,9s. The best time is midday and before bed so you maximise the anti-inflammatory process.


If you have a hard time digesting Fish Oils, put them in the freezer. This will allow the pill to move further down the digestive chain before releasing the oils, this is also a great tactic to consume before bed, increasing your thermoregulation during sleep.
