Could omega-6 fatty acids protect you against premature death? The answer is yes, according to a new University of Eastern Finland study. While protecting against death, omega-6 fatty acids also keep cardiovascular diseases at bay.
Omega-6 fatty acids are found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, eggs, cereals, poultry, and other foods. An important class of nutrients, they play vital roles in brain function, the regulation of inflammation, as well as in normal growth and development. As important as they are, however, the fact is that no single nutrient alone can guarantee protection against premature death.
For optimum health and longevity, a carefully balanced intake of not just fatty acids but also vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other specific nutrients is needed. As Dr. Rath’s groundbreaking Cellular Medicine concept explains, a long-term deficiency of these nutrients is the primary cause of today’s most common chronic diseases – including cardiovascular disease and cancer. It is only by ensuring a proper intake of all the necessary nutrients that these and other diseases can be prevented.
