Omega 3-6-9 oils are a combination of three types of essential fatty acids.
“Essential” means that the body does not produce the fatty acids on its own
and therefore they must be taken in through the diet. The standard North
American diet is deficient in essential fatty acids, especially omega 3s.
Every cell needs essential fatty acids for its cell membrane where the fats
make the important barrier that lets other molecules into and out of the
Without the healthy fats cells become porous and chemical or nutrient
imbalances can occur. The essential fats also produce chemical messengers,
such as hormones, in the body thus, omega 3-6-9 oils help to optimize
hormone levels in both men and women. Essential fatty acids have been used
to treat eczema, psoriasis, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder,
atherosclerosis, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis,
menopause and PMS. They also improve hair and skin, prevent blood clots,
improve memory and regulate hormone levels.
There are three categories of EFAs, omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9.
Vegetable-based combination oils usually contain alpha-linolenic acid, ALA,
for omega 3, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), for omega 6 and oleic acid, for
omega-9. The sources of the oils are several of the following: flaxseed,
borage, black currant, hemp, pumpkin seed, primrose, sunflower or safflower.
Some combination oils include fish oils derived from fish such as herring,
cod, mackerel, tuna or salmon. These oils give the added benefit of
containing docosahexanoic acid, DHA, and eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA, two
other types of omega 3 fatty acids.
Ensure your omega 3-6-9 supplement is not processed with heat because it
damages the acids and creates free radicals. Some of the damaged fats turn
into trans-fatty acids, which are well known for their promotion of
cardiovascular disease. Refrigerate all liquid 3-6-9 supplements and keep
capsules away from heat because they can become rancid. Using liquid EFAs is
much more cost effective than capsules because numerous capsules must be
taken to make an equivalent amount of liquid oil.
Picture your body as a machine. In order to get your body to work your body
needs fuel or food. It then transports that fuel to each cell. Inside each
cell are little engines called mitochondria. They take in the fuel and
process it to release energy.
The energy is used to power all cell processes and is the ultimate source of
your body’s energy. Another body system that impacts on energy is the
glandular system. Picture it as the fuel injector of your body. It regulates
what fuel gets into the body, which cells get the fuel and in what amounts.
The blood cells are also a critical component of the body’s energy system.
They carry oxygen, a catalyst for many cell activities, around the body.
Lack of energy can be attributed to many causes. All of these causes must
negatively impact on our body’s ability to get fuel into the body, inhibit
the mitochondria’s ability to turn it into energy or alter the functioning
of the hormonal and blood system.
Protein and Weight Loss
It is important to note the connection between low calorie diets and loss of
muscle mass. Those individuals seeking to lose weight who overly restrict
their dietary intake will ultimately lower their muscle mass. This is
counterproductive, as our muscles are the body tissue that burns the most
calories by weight. From a biological perspective, the body's response makes
sense; when food is scarce, reducing the amount of calorie burning tissue
you have, allows you to live with lesser requirements until food can be
found again. In modern society, this leads to the inability to lose weight
despite a calorie-restricted diet. Recently, the popularity of high protein
diets has made supplementation of protein popular for weight loss. When
protein is ingested with carbohydrate, it slows the rate at which sugar
enters the body. By avoiding spikes in blood sugar, protein minimizes the
storage of sugar as fat. Individuals with blood sugar imbalances, like
diabetes and hypoglycemia, will benefit from protein's regulation of blood
sugar. Because protein also builds muscle tissue, which burns more energy
than other body tissue, it can also help weight loss.
According to the Canadian Dietary Reference Intake guidelines: sedentary
adult women require 46 grams of protein per day, while sedentary adult males
require 56 grams to avoid deficiency. This is just the amount to prevent
protein malnutrition. Athletes and individuals who are physically active at
work or play will all require additional protein to repair their tissue and
build more lean muscle. People who are recovering from illness or long
periods of inactivity require additional protein to rebuild their lost
muscle mass as well. The immune system is dependent on protein to make the
cells and antibodies that protect our body. Frequent colds and flus and
chronic infections are signs that the body may need more protein. In
general, the recommendation is between 1.5 and 2 grams of protein per
kilogram body weight daily intake for fairly active people. This is around
125g of protein per day for a 70kg (155lb) person.
The body is incapable of storing protein, so when we ingest it in much
larger amounts than the body needs, excess protein has to be broken down.
The extra amino acids are transported to the liver where they are broken
down to create energy. Although an easy energy source, protein does not
"burn clean", and breaking it down creates a waste product called urea.
Normally this is easily excreted through the kidneys in our urine. This
excretion requires calcium, so high protein diets should be combined with a
calcium supplement to protect against reduced calcium stores.
