The term 'essential fatty acids' is frequently misused
'Your body is the hero, and it manufactures some 50 fatty acids itself as it needs them. It converts the two essential fatty acids at a ratio of 5 percent to 30 percent into other fatty acids. The body can also manufacture saturated fatty acids from unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3, 6, 7 and 9) and vice versa. The body uses elongase and desaturase enzymes to make all the fatty acids it needs, except for two that it cannot manufacture - alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA). Without these two fatty acids it is impossible to be healthy, and because we do not make them we must get them from our food. They are called the 'parent essential oils' by Amanprana and scientists such as Prof. Brian Peskin. ALA is the parent essential oil of omega-3 while LA is the parent essential oil of omega-6. The World Health Organisation (WHO), Prof. Brian Peskin, Amanprana and many others all agree - parent essential oils are at the foundation. They can be found in plant-based sources before being partially extracted by fish and other animals. The 100 billion cell membranes in our bodies require these parent essential oils for a great many functions, one of which is ensuring that each cell absorbs enough oxygen.
The importance of the parent essential oils, ALA and LA
Why do we call them parent oils? Because ALA is the 'mother' of the omega-3 family and LA is the 'mother' of the omega-6 family of fatty acids. ALA and LA are the mother sources that the body can use to manufacture all the other fatty acids. And so they are the parent fatty acids or oils. We also call them essential because we need them but cannot manufacture them, and so get them from our food. Together they are the only two 'parent essential oils' that human beings require. Fish oil manufacturers and their pawns often call EPA and DHA essential or semi-essential oils. This is not true, and they are only two of the 50 fatty acids that we require, but that our bodies can manufacture, and so are not essential. Their importance is exaggerated, and many studies have provided contrary results. EPA and DHA are derivatives of the parent essential oils, and derivatives are no essential fatty acids. Fish oil contains very little of the only two parent essential oils LA and ALA, and only contains the omega-3 derivatives EPA and DHA. This is why fish oil is a poor source of the omega-3 parent essential oil ALA. Plant-based omega-3 and 6 is consequently superior to the fatty acid derivatives in fish oil. Let there be no doubt about this.
Okinawa Omega Balance Delight: Cannabis sativa oil for omega balance
Udo Erasmus, the pioneer behind omegas, wrote in his book Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill that: 'Hemp oil can be used for long periods of time to maintain a healthy omega balance without resulting in an omega deficiency or imbalance. Hemp oil has a better "long-term" composition, namely three parts omega-6 and one part omega-3. Besides, hemp oil contains nearly two percent GLA (gamma-linolenic acid)'. The hemp oil in Balance Delight is enriched with sustainable red palm oil and wheat germ oil, as both are abundant in carotenes and vitamin E.
How to take it and how much to take?
You can take as much Okinawa Omega as you like, but 1 teaspoon (5 g = 0.2 oz) will suffice for the recommended daily allowance of ALA and LA. For the optimal allowance and if you are suffering from a deficiency, you can take 1 to 2 teaspoons a day. If you take 1 teaspoon a day and are also eating healthily, then you will be super healthy and also have absorbed the optimal allowance in a good proportion. How do you take it? Either off the spoon or in vegetable soup, yogurt, mashed potatoes or tomato sauce. Do not fry with Okinawa Omega. Only use cold. Can be used by him, her, by the baby and by the centenarian.
Many people believe that the benefits of omega-3 are much greater than those of omega-6. Nothing is further from the truth. We need both, but at least twice as much of omega-6. Brian Peskin, Professor, nutritional expert & author, Houston, USA
