Our diet, with grains as staple couple with lots of other processed and cooked foods, has left us with a serious deficiency in Omega-3 fatty acids, dietary fibre, and anti-oxidants. These have contributed as the major risk factors of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and inflammatory diseases.
They are undeniably convenient, but they are loaded with added preservatives and synthetics to prolong shelf life and generally have low nutritional value, high calories and virtually devoid of fiber.
cooking or heating.
Cooking destroys heat sensitive nutrients, creating harmful free radicals that can lead to cancer, premature aging and many other inflammatory diseases.
lots of grains.
Don't we love rice, pasta and bread? Little do we know these staple food have overly high amounts of Omega-6 fatty acids and seriously deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids.
Most grains are high in Omega-6 fatty acids,
yet very low in Omega-3 fatty acids.
A diet devoid of Omega-3 fatty acids and excess of Omega-6 fatty acids increases the risk of unregulated inflammation, leading to joint pains, menstrual cramps and other symptoms.
While regulated inflammation protects the body from injury and infection, chronic inflammation can damage normal cells and tissues as well as impair the immune system. In fact, it is one of the major causes of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer and other inflammatory diseases.
Clinical studies have shown increasing Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids ratio protects against chronic and degenerative diseases. In a nutshell, how much Omega-3 fatty acids the we need depends on how much Omega-6 fatty acids we consume.
15 grams Halvia gives you 3100 milligrams of Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of ALA.
