Brad Hefta-Gaub Posted January 17, 2013 Share Posted January 17, 2013 From ISWF -- More omega-6 than omega-3 promotes inflammation. Too much PUFA (omega-3 and omega-6) in the diet makes your cells more vulnerable to oxidationâ€” which predisposes you to inflammation. So you want some omega-3 in your diet to help reduce inflammation, but you don't want too much of either omega-3 or omega-6, lest that lead to more inflammation. It's tricky, we'll give you thatâ€” but we've got it all worked out for you in just two steps. Significantly decrease the amount of omega-6 and total PUFA in your diet. Eat some naturally occurring omega-3â€” not too much, but enough to provide some anti-inflammatory benefits. Ok... so this is all great advice, I believe... but I don't know what "too much" and "some" means? Are we talking about 1g per week? 100g per day? Is this based on body weight? 1g per kg of body weight? etc. Generally speaking I am not experiencing any inflammation symptoms... how do I know if I'm eating too much PUFAs?
