Let's Begin Your Juicing Escapades...
Excellent for skin moisturizing, healing, softening , great for hair and scalp, and good for the entire digestive system. Not to bore you with long story, I will mention what improved. The small holes in the grater section may take time to clean. April 18th, at 5: This feature is great for mixing different juices whenever you so desire. My understanding is that fish does contain some amount of naturally occurring omega 6.

Discuss about so many articles and different problems you have. You will learn your blood levels of omega-3 and your ratio of omega 6: Does the product or diet you are using, gives you the results you are looking for. If I encourage you, Mr. Kresser, and all others who are looking for answers to accept this opportunity would you be willing to know how to make it? I did just that, — one dry blood test, and got answers. I was not too bad, because I am generally interested in what I put in my mouth, but my ratio was about 6: I have made second test, waiting for result.
Exiting to monitor the effects of what you eat, both food and supplements. Too little Omega-6 seems also to be a problem for me. I was getting none, or as little to that as possible. My oils came from fish, bovine, home rendered lard, and coconut oil. I supplemented for a while with Flax seed oil and then stopped, about seven months ago. My eczema adult onset, age 55 became rampant a little over three months ago. The skin from my elbows and knees down, fell off.
I was forced to return to chemicals but I used them sparingly for about ten days to get control. I would like to add that I mixed the cream 1-to-7 parts water. Shaking it thickened and I was able to apply very little cream extremely thinly. The rest of the container sits in the fridge for the next emergency.
In early January I gave in and visited an MD. Now, with the addition of Sunflower oil and the re-addition of some Flax and chia seeds, and flax oil, my skin is improving. I use it on my skin and I imbibe it raw.
I homogenise everything together with water in my juicer. I apply the oily mixture over every centimetre of my skin, and I also imbibe the same mix of supplements with my two daily paleo meals. The change has been spectacular; after almost four months of pain, this concoction has improved my skin considerably with noticeable improvements daily. I also bath twice a day, after each meal, and then pat dry and immediately apply my concoction.
My meals are designed to be skin enhancing using every possible skin beneficiary. I suspect there is no one magic formula that works for all. Stress is also a definite factor in my skin problem: Namaste and care, mhikl. Approximately 15 years ago, small fatty deposits, lipomas? The only way i could remove them was to take a pointed knife or object and dig them out. I did this for a few years but they always returned. As a confirmed type 2 diabetic, my right eye had developed slight retinopathy and my legs below my knees began to feel cold even in warm weather.
I struggle continually to maintain normal A1C and bg levels. A well known biochemist, whose name I cannot recall, recommended fish oil as a viable treatment for type 2 diabetics. He apparently, in co-ordination with medical personnel, successfully treated diabetic patients whose legs and feet were in various stages of necropsy and neuropathy.
I began a daily regiment of mg fish oil a day for about years and still use about mg a day. After a few years of fish oil, the fatty deposits completely disappeared; no more cold legs. My retinopathy has remained unchanged. There have been other beneficial results. Well, this hardly constitutes a scientific study, from a dietary and exercise view, fish oil is the only real change i have made in the past 15 years. At 70 years, I am often told I look Recently, during an ultrasound examination of my legs, checking for a blood clot which turned out to be a staph infection I was told my veins appeared to be in very good condition.
Fish oil to me appears to have remarkable medicinal value. Hello George, thank you so much for making the post about Fish oils as a possible lipoma cure.
If you get a moment, could you let us know how many years before the fatty deposits resolved? George, when you took 2, mg of fish oil a day, was that the amount of fish oil in the capsules, or was it 2, mg of DHA and EPA. Hence, I wondered if the 2, mg you took was fish oil, or the omega 3 content. Long may it continue. Here in the UK you would expect at least a combined mg per 1, capsule.
A common one is mg per 1, capsule. His maintenance dose is 2. My concern with high doses is to stick to fish oils of a pharaceutical grade also NOT fish liver oils as these will have too much vitamin A. This is why I wrote this to you. It does not have to be guess work as you are seeking to have your Eicosanoid hormone system in balance and you can get a blood test to see where you are with omega 3 levels also relative to omega 6 and then judge if you need to start with a higher dose, re-test and then go to the maintenance dose.
I had no idea about the maintenance dose of omega 3s. Since you are from the UK, you may also be familiar with the work of Dr. In addition to that, he speaks highly of polyphenols and beta-glucans. His books about these subjects are fascinating. I am taking Nordic naturals Complete omega and also 2 pills of evening primrose oil.
Do you think Im getting too much 6? I am trying to fix inflammation with my joints and my scalp. The evening primrose oil is great. Dr Jeff I meant to ask if Krill oil is in the same category as fish oil and should it be avoided? Dear Dr Jeff Thank you for your comments. There are several different biochemical processes involved in your comments. Key processes are artificial trans fats, oxidised cholesterol, and omega 3 and 6.
I would also add high sugar and high insulin. My reading agrees with the dangers of oxidised small dense LDL cholesterol which causes an immune response in arteries. Oxidised cholesterol can be consumed but it is also more likely to happen with excess sugar in the body as this glycates or damages the protein outer shell making it more prone to oxidation.
We need both those made by omega 6 and omega 3. But too much omega 6 relative to omega 3 leads to too many of the pro inflammatory ones. Just google Harvard Medical School Resolvins for the centre of excellence on this. Many many drugs act on the Eicosanoid hormone system, it is well studied.
Also conversion of short chained omega 3 plant derived is inefficient outside of the range of 6months old and child bearing age, hence breast milk is so rich in long chained omega 3. The Eicosanoid production is also messed up by artificial trans fats and by high insulin sugar and carbohydrate intake.
If the human studies also listed participants on drugs affecting the Eicosanoid system, including statins those overweight hence not balancing their insulin, and those eating artificial trans fats, then you would have great data to analyse. The biochemistry however is clear. Learn to eat without spiking your insulin, avoid artificial trans fats then the fish oils will work properly, and there is a great by-product — weight control. If you believe his advice, just consume whole flax, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds.
Eat some from fresh coconut and maybe a supplement a source of GLA or eat more oatmeal. Eating capsules of oil multiple times a day is a joke for nutritional medical advice, unless your making a profit on selling those capsules.
Yes, we do need omega 6 in a fresh version of it, but the fishoils too. Stick with Nordic Naturals as part of a nutritious, wholefood diet. There is overwhelming evidence that we need to consume marine-derived omega-3s. Plant sources of n3 e.
Stick with Nordic Naturals to supplement a nutritious, wholefood diet. You have a naive understanding of biochemistry, these are steady state reactions as most processes are so the rate of conversion means nothing. The overwhelming majority of Omega-6 and Omega-3 stays in its natural 18 carbon state and is incorporated into cell membranes. Why would nature after millions of years make us deficient of fish oils?
I agree with you. What we can see today is that the ratio between omega3 and 6 is very different from how it was just a couple of generations ago. It seems also pretty clear that plantbased omega3 does not do the trick. Because of the quality of the product and the rest of the diet.
I even read my own test-results, frequently monitoring how my inner life is doing. I really enjoyed your article. It is important to know that flaxseed is available in 2 spieces. One rich in omega-3 oil, and second one in omega-6 oil. This is very dangerous, leading to inflammation, heart disease and cancer. Just adding more Omega-3 is NOT the answer, you need a lot more unprocessed Omega-6 in your diet to compensate for the processed crap that we are getting.
On average, our body is We need a lot of fresh, unprocessed Omega-6 everyday, the Omega-3 is just not as important. I love the articles that tell you their product is rich in omega fatty acids. They know they fool the consumers. Could you post the names of any research articles stating that the issue is nothing to do with the ratios, please? I just saw this post so sorry for the late response.
The easy way is to read the articles on http: He is very well researched and opinionated and he is correct about everything he says.
Many thanks for your reply. After asking this question I clicked on your name and found your website. Hence the link with Omega 6 and 3 link. He posted a link to a clear money making scam.
I wish I was making money, but alas, not so. But if I can make 1 person healthier, it will all be worth it. What is your science background? Our physiology is totally different. The naysayers should prove their point, perhaps? I function and feel better, taking n3 PUFAs, thanks. No need to imagine. I think the polyphenols are very important as well. We have taken a mean from several researches and made the following table:. The important thing is that we all need enough omega-3 fatty acids and we need to get them preferably from our diet and only supplement when needed.
There are different claims about ratio in different countries or regions. Scandinavians going to 3: When I talk with some of scientists in this area they recommend to keep ratio under 3: These times has passed with no return. About the results — the ratio in India, it is said to be much better in the countryside, but very bad in some cities.
Some bad new habits with fast food in the cities, I would guess to blame. I, for one, want to know why. I was taught who, what, where, when and why. Having a better understanding is more convincing. As for knowing what is in the food sources it really depends on the soil.
There is no definitive answer for numbers with depleted nutrient soil. Not to mention what they fish may have in them. Something else interesting is the ratio of potassium vs sodium. Our diets are no where near the 4: Then we wonder why there are so many kidney and heart problems. Yes, the heart works off a sodium potassium pump.
Balance is important in many ways. Wrong oils, wrong salts…. I eat some greens cointaining potassium, — most frequently avocados. I never measured how I am doing when it comes to that balance, — now you made me wanna do that.. I just saw a table that says 5. Is there a wide range of opinions on this? Seems like it would be pretty easy to make an accurate scientific determination. Hi Douglas, the fatty acid content actually varies depending on where the oil was produced and in the case of Canola, the effects of genetic engineering, which further alter the ratios.
The sad fact is that it only causes lesions in rats. No human safety trials have ever been done, we are the experiment. If that is the case, then why is Jamieson selling Omega supplements? If I should simply be taking Omega 3 supplements instead? OK, Omega-6, 18 carbon, unadulterated source, called Linoleic Acid is involved in making PGE-1, the most potent anti-inflammatory in the body. It is adulterated Omega-6 from cooking oil that causes the deposition of oxidized cholesterol in the intima of the arterial wall.
We need a balance of 2. When you try a supplement with this, you will be surprised at the results. So you mentioned we do not need Om3 from fish oil. As I know fish oil 20, 22 carbon with Poliphenols are best known combination to bring Omega 3 to our cells and bring body in balance.
There are many studies about it and I know many good results of individuals who struggled before with skin problems, high blood pressure, lack of energy, migraine and allergies, asthma of youngest generations and children. Many of those problems are got far more better or gone.
You should see what happens with the plant-based! But what does all this mean in real terms? According to this website: I have a bottle of cold pressed hemp seed oil in the fridge which states that it contains 52g of LA and 20g of ALA per ml of product.
Moreover, is mg of Om6 and Om3 daily enough? Hemp seed oil works because it has the proper 2. The fatty acid can be 16, 18, 20, 22 or more carbons long but would be still called Omega-3 or Omega The body only requires the 18 carbon Omega-6 and -3, it converts what it needs on an as needed basis only. If you really want to be precise, then the optimal ratio is 2. I could understand it if you meant that fish oil supplements tend to be rancid and therefore are no different than the oxidised vegetable fats on the supermarket shelves.
But I would have thought that consuming fresh oily fish was a good source of omega 3? Fish oil contains non-essential, 20 and 22 carbon fatty acids. We only need the 18 carbon, plant based versions that are essential i. The vegetable oil on the shelf is highly processed, therefore destroying the Omega content, leading to the myriad of chronic health problems we see today. This is really interesting, thanks so much for your contributions to these posts. Someone else asks whether krill oil is in the same league as fish oil, I was wondering the same thing too.
Thanks for all the posts you made today Dr Jeff Friday 6th Feb. Thanks for sounding the wake-up call. I wish you every success and good health. Until I started to take the Balance Oil I was sick and broken.
Four month later I did control test and that ratio is 3. Not only my test rezults are much better, but my health is so improved…I feel like a new person. Not to bore you with long story, I will mention what improved. I had back problems that kept me going to chiropractor every other day talk about expense. Sciatic nerve pain no longer bothers me. Lost 10 lb in three weeks. The biggest benefit to me is, I lost cravings for sweets.
My skin also improved. My husband said I am much nicer to him ever since I started taking Omega 3. I feel that I can handle lives challenges better.
No argument or article will ever change my opinion about how important Omega 3 is and that we can not get enough from the foods that are available and affordable. Of course I am talking about high quality, delicate Omega 3, that contains right antioxidant that may not be available at the stores. I am so happy someone told me about this: So…the sunflower seed butter that my kids like is NOT a good substitute for nut butter sandwiches. My picky eaters love my home made walnut butter that I make with small amount of Brazil nuts, mostly walnuts, ground flaxseed and vanilla extract.
I try to stay away from peanut legume butter, so cashew butter is one option and I thought sunflower seed butter would be a good option. Now, looking at this chart, I see there is NO omega 3 at all!
They like it too. Wonder if I should just add some ground flaxseed to it to offset the Omega 6. C, your homemade walnut butter sounds yummy. Would you share the recipe? Do your kids eat it on toast? I have heard great things about coconut oil and how good it is for you. I have also heard nutritionists say otherwise. I have read that is it good for an average person to have about tsp daily.
It is also an oil that turns solid. Hundreds of studies have revealed that this is incorrect — such a diet is actually damaging. But nutritionists and dieticians are still trained in a mistaken idea, and can be very defensive about it. Coconut oil turns solid below 78 degrees fahrenheit. Some solid oils, like hydrogenated fats, are bad for the body, but natural saturated fats like coconut oil are very good for people. As you point out, most islanders, who eat a lot of coconut oil, are traditionally very healthy.
Heart disease was unknown among them until coconut oil was replaced with sickly vegetable oils like corn and soy. I want to add some more. Hydrogenation adding more hydrogen is done to make double bonded chemical bond mono unsaturated acids to saturated.
This is mainly done in cosmetic industry. The advantage is that coconut oil is small chain fatty acids, the main component is just 12 carbon atoms. Whereas in Olive Oleic fatty acid has 18 Carbon atoms.
What is the advantage? It is easy to break down a smaller fatty acid than a long fatty acid. So Coconut oil can easily digested, compared with other long chain mono and poly unsaturated fatty acids. Having said that, since coconut oil contains saturated fat, over consumption is not advised. Actually type 2 diabetes is partially hereditary and partially caused by arsenic poisoning. This poison arsenic is in found in substantial quantities in rice both white and brown, pear juice, apple juice and grape juice.
Also, arsenic exposure can be from from rice, beer, chicken, brussels sprouts, water from wells unregulated in the US …. Too many to list. Here is one relating rice consumption: That would be a very narrow-sighted view. The PUFA evidence is quite convincing.
Was hoping for much worse because i hoped this could is my backinjury from a car crash, but since i had so nice ratio before starting i had my doubt. After 3months daily i felt so much better.
And after 4months i took the 2nd test that showed ratio 3: They say they have the right amount of omega9 oliveoil in this so that the body will use all amount of the omega 3.
Youtubevideo from the company: No wonder it got so many shares. We will implement bits of this information on our site http: Thank you very much. Is the attached Omega 3 product a good ratio? My daughter has Hashimotos and I am trying to find a really good Omega for her to reduce her inflammation and improve her thyroid anitbody levels. I am in school to become a dietitian and just want to say that this article and especially the comments blew my mind.
I never knew anything about omega 6 fatty acids and I hope that in the next few years I will have just half the knowledge I see here about the chemical break down of foods. Thank you to all! I just stumbled across this thread and some basic inaccuracies should be addressed. Omega-6 in its raw, unprocessed form is not the enemy here. The basic problem is the processing which it undergoes. Google vegetable oil processing corn or canola, soya etc. The Omega-6 is actually way more important than Omega-3 for cellular function.
Incorporating improper, processed Omega-6 into our cell membranes reduces the rate at which oxygen can cross the cell membrane, leading to anaerobic metabolism, rising acidity levels, inflammation, heart disease and cancer. DHA and EPA are longer chain fatty acids that are highly oxidizable due to there level of unsaturation. They are destroyed by the stomach acid fishy burps anybody?
They are not appropriate dietary supplements for most people if not all. Do you have a website or can you refer me to a specific source so I can gain more information on these points? I just started eating flax seeds, and my short-term memory suddenly started working again. I could actually feel something happening in my head, and then I was no longer forgetting stuff.
I used to do things like walk into a room, and forget why I went there in the first place. If you will send me your email I will provide you with information about clinically approved product. After you could choose by self to use it or not but will get some usable information. Hello Aigars, I too would like information about the clinically approved product for getting the omega ratio correct! I was making almond flour with the fibre but have stopped doing this since reading about the high 6 to 3 omega ratio.
Is there a distinction? Why drink milk at all? Just stick to a mostly vegetarian diet and you will put your cardiologist out of business. But what about bone density. My GP put me on Prolia for my osteopenia but what really helped my numbers the most was I have just through eating more dairy. Bone density will take care of itself with proper protein, fats and lower carbs. Milk non-whole milk drinking is associated with increased osteoporosis. Also bone strength is associated with weight training.
I was 35kg 13 months ago, I suffer from anorexia. I now weigh 44kg. I do eat salmon, flaxseed oil, loads of quinoa and a fair bit of omega 3 but I certainly do not think it would outweigh the amount of omega 6 in my diet. My diet is also high healthy low gi carbohydrates.
My experience with omega 6: It was was prescribed to me by my doctor never mind what for , who said to take mg a day. I blamed it on too much pizza: So, all in all, I decided to stop taking the primerose oil.
I know that this kind of natural medicine is becoming more popular and maybe it helps some but after my last experiences I start trusting Doctor Google more than regular ones.. However, I developed a lipoma on my shoulder last month and have just found out according that lipoma could be due to excess Omega 6 intake.
I have found a great oil that contains everything needed it is new to the USA. I had myself tested first. My understanding is that fish does contain some amount of naturally occurring omega 6.
I just checked Wikipedia and it says this on fish oil: What the asterisk might indicate is that fish oil capsules might contain little or no omega 6 if the omega 3 in the capsule is concentrated to a high level. If thats it, then it would also be fair to say any oil is good to cook with as long as you are balancing the other oils with what you intake. Example cooking your fish in an olive oil and a small amount of butter.
With all the variables in play I find it to difficult to wrap my head around the exact ballance. For the average Joe like myself, I think its best to do ourselves a favor and limit your fats and carbs and get more of your calories from protien and dont worry about what type of fats you are eating as long as you are limiting them.
Caveman diet, Atkins diet Then again.. I suggest you find out for yourselves about the effects of Long-medium and short chain fats. Can you tell me if the information given here is based on recent studies? By recent I mean within the last months. I have not read your book, but was very excited to see some of my beliefs validated on your blog and want to get to the book. The question is, when we eat this way, should we still take simply Omega-3 supplements?
Are all omega-6 fatty acids pro-inflammatory? During a discussion with a doctor chemist the following question came up. What are your thoughts on that? Apparently the World Health Organization endorses an n-6 to n-3 ratio of 4: The researchers at http: This ratio, of course, differs sharply from your target ratio.
Chris, could you comment on this? Why not test your fatty acid balance? To see if your diet or Product works? There is a dry blod sample test and I know how to get an extensive 30 pages test for free.
You are welcome to connect with me on facebook to get mere Info. Delighted to find a well-researched blog discussing omega 3 to 6 ratios, their background history, as well as modern sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Although Chris acknowledges the overwhelming advantage of seafood over plant-sourced omega3, we are left with a serious dilemma— fish bear an ever greater toxic burden. To obtain adequate amounts of long-chain omega3 fatty acids, we are forced to eat not only toxins naturally present with fish, but industrial toxins like mercury, lead, PCBs and even chlordane.
Our alternative to seafood is endogenous conversion of plant-sourced, short-chain omega3 fatty acids. Since the human history does not involve ready access to seafood at all locations, humans survived on alternative sources of essential fatty acids.
There may have been a native conversion ability to some degree, in particular populations. So, one potentially useful vein of research is the reason humans vary individually on their omega3 to 6 conversion ability— enzymes appropriate to the conversion are not evenly distributed in the population.
For most of us, lacking that conversion ability means we can obtain our DHA and EPA in complete safety from only molecularly-distilled fish oil. And to obtain a truly substantial amount of DHA and EFA by supplement not only requires ingestion of a considerable amount of oil, but is quite expensive.
Perhaps the better approach— hopefully made practical by research— is to identify and provide by oral supplement the enzymes needed to increase omega3 to 6 conversion efficiency with plant sources, such as flaxseed. One of the hazards of editing late at night is to see what is not there.
Here are two corrections—. I agree wholly with Pone. This is truly a , logical, rational and level headed thinking that we all should employ. The point the biochemists make in response is that the AHA studies with Omega-6 also use Omega-3, thus making causality to Omega-6 impossible to establish.
A superb article summarizing both sides of this argument fairly is here: I am a practicing MD. I have served as a clinical adviser to research scientists at Harvard Med School working on novel methods of controlling systemic inflammation.
I basically agree with all your points regarding the health issues created by our unhealthy American diet which is too high in omega6s and high glycemic index carbohydrates.
This is clearly the nations number one health issue and leads not only to atherosclerotic vascular disease and Type2Diabetes, but a whole spectrum of chronic degenerative diseases, allergies and auto immune disorders.
AA which is derived from omega6s is the most important promoter of chronic systemic inflammation. EPA, but not DHA competes for these membrane receptors with the general action of decreasing over all inflammation. Because our diets as you point out are so high in n-6s, we need a great deal of EPA.
Unfortunately if you try to obtain therapeutic levels of EPA using regular fish oil, you will consume too much DHA which is the portion of fish oil which causes the unpleasant GI effects. You need to either modify your diet or take a more pure form of EPA. Anthony, I have read the studies by biochemists like William Lands that agree with your comments about Omega-3 and Omega-6 competing for the same receptors.
So the implication of that is to increase Omega-3 to overpower the Omega The solution proposed by the AHA — to consume more Omega-3 to offset our overdose of Omega-6 — therefore subjects us to even more oxidative stress than Omega-6 alone would. You ask, why not just cut down on our n-6 consumption? Well certainly that would do the trick, although you still need EPA. Cutting down on n-6s is not a practical solution for people living in the USA.
Our entire food delivery system.. Processed foods have been seed oil dependent since the s. Adding seed oil fraction which is relatively resistant to oxidation, adds flavor and increases shelf life. Prior to the the development of seed oil presses, there were no supermarkets, because food products were too unstable. There is also another issue besides n-6 consumption which are high glycemic index carbs. Rapid absorption of sugars causes blood sugar spikes which triggers insulin release.
Insulin favors the AA pathway accelerating the rate and percentage conversion of n-6s to AA which increases systemic inflammation. He certainly makes the case for reducing foods that spike insulin and increasing intake of EPA in controlling AA production.
Following his protocol, especially his recommendation of 7. Could you comment on this? Chris, I am all confused. Few months ago there was a report based researched people who consumed high level of omega-3 had high risk of prostate cancer compared to people who consumed high level of omega Please comment on that. Also, can you please advise daily recommended intake of omega 3 and 6 for adult. Assume that somehow we manage to get our Omega-3 to Omega-6 balance closer to the ideal 1: In that case, what is the maximum amount of Omega-6 that we are allowed to ingest, and what is the reason for that limitation?
I live on the coast of australia and eat fish six nights a week not fried in any oil nonstick pan. Pizza on the seventh night. No need 4 fish oil. Non-stick pans contain a cancer causing chemical that transfers slowly over time into your food.
You should use cast iron with a splash of canola. This is only true for non stick using PFOE and similar. Ceramic coatings and the new diamond like film coatings are non toxic and metal utensil save. They can be found on many stainless steel and cast iron products. Modern ceramic and DLC nonstick surfaced are not you grannies poison.
We started our 8 year old on Eye Q http: In your experience, in just week, could this stuff be the cause of his body aches and change in personality? Chris, the Inuit Paradox is that the Western Greenland Eskimo used to eat lots of fat and hardly any vegetables yet they had a very low incidence of cardiovascular disease.
So you need something like oatmeal- the slow cook stuff not intant- has lots of it- I think hemp oil too? Chris et al We do not consume processed pre packaged foods, nor do we buy supermarket ready meals etc.
I cook from scratch. No breakfast cereals, no pasta, no rice, no flours as in baked foods are eaten. We are Omnivores, and eat protein of some source with every meal, plus non starchy vegetables, salads etc. Therefore we are low in fructose as well. I use EV Coconut oil or animal fat to cook with, butter on vegetables. Add chia seed and hemp seed and ground flax seed to my daily g yoghurt. We take a fish oil capsule a day, eat fresh salmon maybe once each week, but still suffer from extreme inflammation.
Vascular CVD and vasculitis…… Where are we going wrong? I actually eat low er carb myself. Do you bake with a lot of almond flour? I seem to recall one famous online doctor saying that unless animals are grass fed, the ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 in their will be unfavourably outbalanced. Hence, unless we eat grass fed meat we may be consuming too much omega 6. The lecture should be on the link below. If you are vegan, and want a vegans point of view, check out his lecture….
Thanks for uploading this video, it contains some excellent information … however, some of his advice seems a little dated. Potassium is abundant in many fruit and veg. Cholesterol rectifies the damage caused by inflammation in our arteries, but it gets blamed for causing the problem.
He also cautions against consuming coconut oil — yet we now know this is one of the healthiest oils we can consume. He also suggests that vegetarians and vegans could get some of their B12 requirements from fortified soy milk, yet we are told by other doctors that soy products — unless fermented — are tremendously detrimental to health, partly because of their phytate and lectin content, along with phytoestrogens which may disrupt hormone balance in some individuals.
An interesting article about this can be found on this website:. After saying all that, Dr Gregor gives some fascinating information about the dangers of homocystine and how it can be lowered with Vitamin B12, so thanks for uploading the video. Someone posted that Krill oil is more powerful or words to the effect than fish oil..
On the NEPT site there was is a study posted. Though I am an MD. I am not a journal snob and try to keep reasoning and thought above rank or credential.. Unfortunately, even though the data present would seem to indicate Krill Oil was vastly superior to fish oil in its abilities to lower trigs, maintain and lower LDL-C bad cholesterol..
How can I say that??? It is called the Friedewald Equation, and it has been tested, and in one paper over 29, lab tests confirmed its accuracy. The disturbing thing about the reported Krill paper was the reported results did not line up with the Friedewald equation… remember Krill oil is acting on the lipid panels, and even if effects were different from fish oil, the lipid contents still must conform to the ratios, and totals …Furthermore all the aberrant results always erred on the side that made Krill oil look better than fish oil..
The conclusion is the results were fudged. Krill oil is phosphorylated and the company claims this gives increased benefits and higher GI absorption levels, similar claim is made in some of the fish oils.. These claims to not really check out.. I read on another site — notably one that sells high-EPA fish oil — that we need much less DHA in relation to EPA because the half life of DHA is something like 2 years — so it stays in the brain, and perhaps builds up to higher levels — compared to EPA, which they say has a short half life of something like several days.
First Tom… Sorry pal, but there is very good scientific evidence that supports the fact EPA one of fish oils two principal components does act to decrease chronic inflammation, working within the cited eicosanoid system to 1 decrease the rate of conversion of ALA the principal n-6 to Arachidonic Acid AA the principal pro inflammatory eicosanoid and 2 to competitively inhibit the pro inflammatory actions of AA on the COX and LOX cell and nuclear membrane receptors..
Check out atherosclerosis in the Japanese population…. A little knowledge can get you int a lot of trouble…Most of the fish oil critics are bad scientists.. Read on an Ad sent to my inbox promoting Krillfishoil 5X, that fish oil needs to be extracted via CO2 to be effective. If so it seems like it would all end up as DHA. Great site, very informative thank you. Have you done any research on hemp oil?
Any info on hemp oil would be appreciated! Better than fish oil, according to his posts. He recently posted that Hemp seed oil is good, in response to one of my queries. Can you answer that one? You can see the entire series here: I would provide you with test possibilities if you are interesting in it, but before that I would like you to know more about it.
So I would give you more information about test. Contact me on Facebook or email. I just want to make sure everyone reads and understands what has happened to our meat supply,since they started to feed corn and soy to the animals. This results in a change in the linoleic acid content of. This is not natural to humans,and might be a major cause of our disease.
Make sure to look at the human fat data. Conclusion Overall, omega-3 PUFA supplementation was not associated with a lower risk of all-cause mortality, cardiac death, sudden death, myocardial infarction, or stroke based on relative and absolute measures of association.
The study did not take into consideration numerous other factors that play a role in illness. For instance, how high was n-6 in their diets? Did it greatly overwhelm n-3 intake? What about blood glucose levels resulting from simple carb intake?
There is a big picture here, and taking a few fish oil caps while changing nothing else will of course have little to no effect. I emailed him about both of your comments and he buried you. I think people are afraid of him because no one will debate him. You guys called him out on his work and should back it up with a debate. Ive been eating raw granola butter that I make to get my protein, fat, and carbs.
I got my info from this site. Is it true that omeg-3 helps in reducing forgetfulness. This is my greatest weakness and i wish to know how to resolve it. Nearly all commercially available fish oil is extracted from the waste of commercially caught fish. For example when salmon are caught and processed in a cannery. The waste is sent to a local rendering plant where it is turned into fishmeal and fish oil.
The fish oil is even used in the boilers 12 to provide heat for processing. Clearly, there is an inflammatory component to CHD, but the role of eicosanoids per se is not clear, especially when one considers that AA and LA itself can be converted into a variety of anti-inflammatory eg, epoxyeicosatrienoic acid  and lipoxin A  as well as pro-inflammatory mediators. Even though higher LA diets do slightly lower n-3 index, there still are independent cardioprotective actions of LA itself eg, lowering serum cholesterol and possibly improving endothelial function and insulin resistance that could more than offset a theoretical reduction in n-3 levels.
One cannot consider only one CHD risk factor in isolation and ignore the others. Chris Love your article. Found your knowledge to be far beyond your contemporaries. But, I would like to bring you up to speed on a small group of us trying to change the lipids profile in beef cattle with very great success. Our cattle are fed a diet rich in ground flax and the results have been terrific. If you would like to see more info on what we are doing you can see more at http: Basically our bodies lay down mono and saturated fat as an energy store store for times of starvation.
In other words given a choice our bodies prefer saturated fat. A carefully kept secret apparently. Page 95 of his book. Lots of other good stuff in the book from salt to sunshine. Happy Xmas to you all. Impressive about all the views from people. I thought this site was so interesting that I sent it on to a few friends. I heard that if you are going to take supplements, then it is better to just take the omega 3. Now I know why. A great post as always.
I believe his name is William Lands. You can just delete this comment later. IT does not add to the discussion. What oil would you suggest I use instead of olive oil? Eric, Macadamia Oil would be a much better monounsaturated fat to use instead of olive oil. Macadamia has very low polyunsaturated fat content. Olive Oil gives a lot of Omega6 when eaten in large amounts. Any tips on finding this info would be much appreciated!
My tests on strictly grain fed cattle have not yielded much Omega-3 fatty acids. Generally 25 to 40 mg per 4 ounce serving would cover the majority of the cattle we tested for our baselines. Don Mayse Show Me Farms. I meet individuals who rather say the things they suppose others wish to hear. Good and well written! Very good written article. It will be useful to everyone who utilizes it, as well as myself. Keep doing what you are doing — i will definitely read more posts.
Not to mention they could cause an imbalance in the omega 3 and 6 ratio. However, consuming saturated fats, I thought, would be s different matter, giving room, in this case, to monounsaturated fats, like olive oil, as long as not used for cooking. Could you please clarify that? Am I killing myself and loved ones trying to be healthy? There is no doubt that saturated fats are not as healthy for you as unsaturated.
But, they are leaps and bounds better than trans-fats. I believe those will do you in. I try to use as little fat as possible to cook with and have been sticking to cannola. You also have to consider the fact that most foods, including vegetables, include decent amounts of omega 6. Best wishes from solarenergie. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you not that I actually would want…HaHa.
You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great! What is the best strategy for decreasing inflammation — increase omega-3, decrease omega-6 or both? Yes I can see how consuming more n6 oils will negate the effects of n3 body assimilation effects. I have 2 people who are aged 90 and have used just the above formula above that I am talking about in confidently going with Chris here.
In fact the 2 subjects that I have been observing seem to be doing something else very unique that I see more the reason that they are bright, fully functional and standing walking human beings still very much contributing to society and a total inspiration to me.
Many of us assume that the average life span more specifically Average Life Expectancy At Birth of around 35 — 38 of pre-historic people means 35 — 38 represented ripe old age. This simply is not the case. Average life span is heavily skewed by infant and child death of which there was much more.
When measuring Average Life Expectancy at age 15, for example, many modern hunter gatherers, and those ancient ones for which such data is attainable, match or exceed modern industrial people; and that all without the help of modern sanitation, antibiotics, dental care, etc.
I believe you will find that my main point stands up to scrutiny. Enjoyed reading your article, and appreciate the skepticism. Two questions for you: This really contradicts the paradigms I have of the hunter-gatherers that did not live along a coast. Assuming many of these were migrant groups, is it realistic that they would be able to catch that much seafood as they moved from lake-to-lake or river-to-river?
There seem to be too many variables here to use the lack of certain diseases in our ancient ancestors as evidence to support your argument. Freedman, or Ben Goldacre have to say! I wrote about krill oil here. But please see this article for my latest thoughts on fish oil supplementation. Now to be clear, I do not claim that these are five different sources. It is just the one, very good source. He likes it, anyway!
First of all, The Champion Juicer is a heavy duty machine. It reall y is super durable. The sheer weight and materials of it make it so. Juicing is not an easy task. It's a hard job for these little machines to squeeze the juice out. You need something strong. That means it's really extracting good nutrition out of the fruit and veggies.
Unlike centrifugals, it has no spinning screen to break which is the most common way centrifugal juicers break. The single gear cutter is made of nylon, not molded plastic. The motor runs slow, allowing it to operate at a cooler temp ensuring all the vitamins and enzymes are retained. The Champion juicer designed for continuous juicing of fruits and veggies. It also can homogenize crushing it to one consistency like a blender. This allows you to make MANY other things. It turns easily into a homogenizer to make baby foods, fruit sauces, nut butters, ice creams and sorbets by replacing the mesh screen with a blank plate with no screen, to grind and push the food through the ejector in one continuous operation.
It can juice greens, just not as effective as some other machines. You also cannot stick a whole apple or pear in the chute. You need to prep the produce to fit into the juicing tube this is true for many juicers.
Because it is a heavy duty machine, it tends not to be as quiet as some other juicers. You have the benefit of knowing it's doing a good job grinding and crushing the produce so if it needs to have a little noise, most people are okay with that.
It's also a little heavy. For what it does and the quality, it hands down has a great price tag. You can then add nuts, berries or toppings to the ice cream for a healthy treat. I have seen this done in a few health cafés offering these treats to their customers which is when I started doing it myself. I also make nut butter and sorbet. It allows me to eat healthier with only one machine.
Find out how to make banana whips with the Champion. Yes, It comes in silver, almond, white and black. I recommend the black as I have a white and over time the carrot juice has stained some parts. Oh, yes, and It is easy to get replacement parts if needed ps-I have not needed any. This juicer is manufactured by a company from Lodi, California, that only makes these juicers as their specialty.
I bought it 7 years ago and have not had any problems, except for a tiny piece of plastic breaking off of the top during a move my fault. I love to make other things like sorbets. I am happy I bought this as my first juicer.
By the way things are looking, it might be my last juicer!
