You’ve probably heard of omega 3 fatty acids and you might have heard of omega 6 fatty acids, but do you know what they are and why they are important? Maybe you have an idea that omega 3 fatty acids are “good” and omega 6 fatty acids are “bad.” As y’all have heard me say before the terms “good” and “bad” are often inappropriately used when it comes to nutrition, and that holds true for omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. This video takes an honest look at omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids and breaks them down in an easy to understand way.
As always, let us know if you have any more questions or if you’d like anything cleared up!
