Essential Fatty Acids – Omega 3 & 6 Oils


Essential Fatty Acids – the scientific calculation of Omega-6/3 optimum ratio

Should we take more Omega 3 and less omega 6 or more Omega 6 and less omega 3? New scientific information on the Omega oil ratios. Read more….


General information

  • Once EFA are consumed the body changed about 5% into biochemical derivatives like EPA, DHA and GLA.

  • The balance of 95% stays in the original form Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils.

  • A lot of omega oils are marketed as O3 and O6, but are derivates like DHA, EPA and GLA – these are non essential because your body makes them as needed.

  • Everyone is overdosing with omega 3 – fish oil decrease immunity1.

  • Fish oil did not improve atherosclerotic progression and did not stop thickening of the artery wall.

  • CRP (biochemical marker for inflammation) levels do not decrease with Omega 3 supplementation2.

  • Glycemic control worsens with fish oil administration3.

  • Fish oil caused brain damage in infant and adult mouse4.

  • The body still uses defective EFA`s, even if they don’t work, but these substitutes do not provide the highest level of oxygenation for the cells.

  • Omega 3 from food is usually not altered, but omega 6 is. Thus you have to supplement with unprocessed and unadulterated omega 6.

  • The body uses more omega 6 than 3.

  • Too much omega -3/6 derivatives or defective EFA`s ruin the cell membrane structure and minimize your level of protection.

  • Heart attack victims have low levels of omega-3 and 6.

How do you know that your O3/O6 deficiency has been solved?

  • Appetite is fulfilled with significantly less cravings.

  • Skin become like a babies bum.

  • Better oxygen supply to muscle prevents lactic acid build up – quicker recovering.

Why we need to supplement with Omega 6

  • Processed omega 6 oils can cause cancer and heart disease.

  • In vivo vs in vitro tests are often used. This leads to incorrect results because of hormonal and biochemical interactions in body.

  • There is no science of physiology to determine what the tissue ratio of omega-6/3 is.

  • Amount of omega 3 used in body is overestimated.

  • There is no independent verification of past recommendations.

  • Heat destroys a lot of the omegas consumed.

  • The omega food that we consumed contains residues from pesticides, hormones, preservatives and other chemicals that are fed to animals and farmed-raised fish.

  • Omega 6 content of animal tissue and organs can vary because of diet that they are fed.

  • Cook your protein well because of parasites and bacteria and supplement with EFA`s.


  • Eicosanoids are the body’s cellular hormones.

  • Eicosanoids include prostaglandins (influence cholesterol & cardiovascular health) and leukotrienes (influence allergies & asthma).

  • They act fast and have a short life span.

  • There are three types of prostaglandins: PGE1; PGE2; PGE3.

  • Omega 3`s derivative PGE3 is not as powerful as Omega 6`s PGE1.

  • Omega 6 and its derivatives like AA (Arachadonic acid) are to prevent inflammation (unless required to seal a wound).

  • The body will only secrete PGE2 as needed.

  • AA is the precursor to prostacyclin (natural blood thinner and inhibitor of platelet adhesion)5.

  • AA will enhance vascular function and blood flow because it is a vasodilator.

  • Overdosing on omega 3 can enhance internal bleeding from an overproduction of eicosanoids.

The correct supplement calculation of the Omega 3 and 6 oils

Ratio of Tissue Composition


% of Total body weight

Omega 6

Omega 3

Brain/Nervous system








Organs & Tissues




Adipose Tissue (body fat)








  • 50% of the body consists of muscle and the omega-6/3 ratio is 6.5:1

  • With a high bad omega 6 diet it is realistic to say that the ratio should be between 7:1 to 8.5:1
