We all know that it’s best to minimize omega-6 fatty acids, and to maintain a good ratio of omega-3:6s. Since we get Omega-6s in protein sources and nuts, most of us use flax oil to improve this ratio.
But fish oil provides EPA and DHA which convert to the most potent omega-3s. Can we forego most of our flax and use a large quanity of fish oil to adjust our omega-3:6 ratio to an optimal level for health and body composition?
Decreasing our flax consumption in favor of monounsaturates would cause less pro-oxidative damage. It also might be a little more convenient.
The Dr. Serrano interview reawakened my curiosity on this matter. Anybody looked into it?
