Higher levels of Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) stored in fat tissue have been linked to a lower risk of death in a Swedish study.The acid stored in the adipose tissue has been associated with a 10% lower risk of all-cause mortality. The study was the largest of its kind in studying the levels of fatty acids in adipose tissues.

The findings suggests beneficial effects through omega-6 rich vegetable oils such as corn, sunflower, canola, and soybean oil on mortality and possibly cardiovascular health.

Groups such as the American Heart Association consider the consumption of polyunsaturated fats to be beneficial for heart health when used as a replacement for saturated and trans fat.

None of the four primary fatty acids were found to be associated with cardiovascular mortality although previously questioned and linoleic acid such as omega-6 was inversely associated with all-cause mortality.

Omega fatty acids are precursors in stopping excess inflammation. Diets consisting of beneficial levels of omega fatty acids have some pretty positive effects on health.

Fatty acids such as Omega-3 are beneficial in cases of COPD, cognitive functioning, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.

We recommend Xymogen's OmegaPure 820 and they have a whole line of Omegas to choose from. They just came out with a fish oil line MonoPure that is predigested for people without a gallbladder, Cystic Fibrosis patients and more.
