Omega 3, 6 and 9 benefits

Do you know your omega-3 from your omega-9? It can be tough learning about the different fatty acids, why you need them and how to get them.

To break it down very simply, omegas 3 and 6 work together to support your brain and heart. It seems that for best results we should consume them in a particular ratio (of around 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3).

In the West, most of us get far too much omega-6, which is present in refined vegetable oils, and not enough omega-3.

What does ‘essential fatty acid’ mean?

 

You may hear the omegas referred to as ‘essential fatty acids’. A nutrient is considered ‘essential’ if we need it to function properly, but can’t make it ourselves. In that case, we need to source it from our diet – like omegas 3 and 6.

Omega-9, also known as oleic acid, is important for brain health. While we can make some of it ourselves, we do also need to source some from our diets.

Hence, while omegas 3 and 6 are known as ‘essential fatty acids’, omega-9 is classed as ‘partially essential’.

Vegan omega 3 6 & 9

There are many plant-based sources of omegas 3, 6 and 9.

Source your omega-3 and omega-6 from oils such as our Organic Hemp Seed, Chia Seed or Walnut Oils.

Our Organic Hemp Seed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-3 in the perfect 3:1 ratio! So, it’s a great choice for drizzling over your porridge or into your smoothies if you’re keen to increase your intake.

Meanwhile olive oils such as our Organic Single Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil are an excellent choice if you want to meet your daily needs of omega-9.

Lots of vegans turn to a synthetic supplement to source their omegas, but at Erbology we always encourage you to source your nutrients from a healthy plant-based diet. This gives you much greater transparency over what you are consuming.
