Omega 6s often get a bad rep. Some Omega 6s, like GLA, play a crucial role in overall health. A general rule of thumb is to avoid all highly processed fats.
When it comes to our bodies we need a mix or balance of essential fatty acids (EFAs). It is best to consume foods that have naturally balanced omegas. Hemp has an Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio of 3:1. Plus, the omegas in hemp are unrefined and easily digestible.
For more information about “good” and “bad” Omega 6s or the balance of omegas, contact your health care professional.
