Omega 3 6 9 are among the healthiest fats available in nature.
But due to excess consumption of Omega 3 6 9 there is an imbalance of each nutrient.
As we know that each nutrient is required for proper functioning of the body.
Due to this people go towards supplements that contain every fat such as Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9.
Overdose Side Effects of Omega 3 6 9
- Skin Rashes or itching
- Swelling of tongue, face or throat
- Breathing problem
Do we need these three fats from supplements?
No! We don’t need each fat in the same proportion.
Omega 3: Need in large quantity but not more than 3 gram in daily diet
Omega 6: Less than Omega 3
Omega 9: Less than Omega 6
Why? The answer lies below.
Omega 3 fatty is the top priority fat that we need in excess quantity. Omega 3 required for proper development and function of the body. So it plays a significant role than Omega 6 and Omega 9.
Fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables are the rich source of omega 3 and provide required omega 3 to the body.
Also, Omega 3 is necessary for the production of omega 9. So it becomes necessary to take care of omega consumption.
As Omega 3 plays a vital role, Omega 6 is also important fat. But is required is small quantity than omega 3. Due to today’s diet routine that includes milk, meats, chips and egg we get excess omega 6.
Then a question arise “Why should we eat supplement to get omega 6?” So it is not recommended to take any supplement that contain omega 6.
As we know that Omega 3 6 9 supplement contains omega 9 equally as omega 3 and 6. But do we need omega 9 from a supplement? It is the biggest question as it may be the cause of health problems.
Omega 9 is required in very small quantity for the proper functioning of the body. But it is a great boon to us that, it can be produced naturally inside our body when our diets are rich in Omega 3 and 6.
So our daily required Omega 9 are produced by our body. Then why do we unnecessarily eat Omega 3 6 9 to get Omega 9.
Due to over consumption of Omega 3 6 9 it creates unbalance of these nutrients. Due to unbalance of nutrients it creates deposition of those extra fats. These lead to a health problem and should be avoided.
Always maintains a healthy diet that provides all nutrients. It will keep you away from many diseases.
So get a suggestion from your specialist to know more about it side effects. Also, ask for proper diet routine to get each nutrient from food.
