• We at OmegaQuant are aware that there people generally consider omega-3s to be good and omega-6 to be bad. However, we think this may be too simplistic, even if biologically omega-6s and 3s are pro- and anti-inflammatory, respectively. Still, we have seen research showing that higher levels of linoleic acid, which is an omega-6 fatty acid, are linked to better outcomes in terms of cardiovascular health and diabetes. So rather than focus on lowering your omega-6s, we believe increasing your omega-3s will automatically balance out this ratio and is something that is more actionable for most people.
  • Here is a helpful video that explains why you need both omega-3 and omega-6.
