We do need the omega 3's and maybe the 9's but the omega 6's we get too much. I don't know much about the 9's so will have to look into that one. Thanks for the article
Goldilox8 has asked Vitamin “E”
Good question Goldilox8, Too much of a good thing is not good in this case too much could cause excess bleeding but... was asked on this other spark page thread. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_me
Tocopherol is … it is a category of nutrient the body must have from daily food; outside sources. The science name uses the Greek words tokos “off spring” and pheros “to bear.” It is Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta. They are great for free radical removal and inflammation reducing and the Tocopherol Gamma has 20% less effectiveness than Tocopherol Alpha but they are all necessary for life and fertility. The cousin branch of the “E” vitamin family is the tocotrienols of also Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta. It is not made within the body. Even the outside sources must still be processed or synthesized in the gut for internal acceptance and use but please remember only acquired from daily stuffs rich in this nutrient.
I have heard there is one type of commercially synthetically (artificially) produced Tocopherol vitamin “E” that has been over worked by manufacturers and has harmed our senior population by doctors recommending it to very poor health results. Thus a ban went out to please avoid this particular commercially produced version of a much needed nutrient. There are many types of vitamin “E” as explained by our national institute for health and many natural food sources of omega-3 fatty acid that are carried by a vitamin “E” source. The body must have these nutrients to pull out toxins transport nutrients and oxygen to all tissues all cells and the humble action of generating new and replacement cells. Vitamin “E” and the omega fatty acid family are only gotten through outside sources not made by the body in the body like some forms of vitamin “D”. It does require the body to pull it from food but most people do not get enough good food high in omegas to meet the daily needs and improved health demands. This causes older harder sheaths especially for nerves arteries and other tubing-like messenger tissues as shown in heart attacks and other extreme signs of this weakness not just facial wrinkles. Faster aging and slower healing and all around poor health; the American medical society from government research has tried to reduce use of synthetic stuff and rebuild the healthier foundation of facts from natural places. The second tip was when studies have shown that larger amounts of omega-6 fatty acid crowds cells not allowing the omega-3 fatty acids to do the right job. Is this another FDA oops?
The highly processed ‘fast food’ or processed ‘diet foods’ tend to be higher in omega-9 fatty acids and the body does use some of it but cannot pull from big to make smaller number of carbon molecules of the family of omegas. It must start with a much smaller numbered omega; the omega-3s then add-on to create healthy omega-6s and omega-9s. In the N-3 signifies that the first double bond exists as the third carbon in a carbon bond from the terminal methyl end (n) of the carbon chain declares its name. The carbon shifting of natural sources is a lock. The body does only add-on carbons. Some rarely cut away to a lesser carbon count required so many more steps must be taken to acquire a simpler one. Vitamin “E” carrier of omega-3 fatty acids has the best effects for good health when the balance of omegas 3-6-9 is higher in vitamin “E” omega-3 fatty acids than when a high fat diet full in those 6s and 9s carbon count fatty acids actually crowd out the 3s inside body cells thus weaker and shorter cell life; where the better health foundation of omega-3.
There are whole food sources like avocado flax fresh nuts like coconut or fish dairy and meats and many other foods from plant and animal sources and their supplements in the higher concentrations. We have to plan for getting fresh personal daily supplies of the much needed omega-3 fatty acids. And provide the carrier into the body as it is bonded to the “E” vitamin.
Modern processed foods are extremely low in most of these nutrient rich constituents usually due to heat processing or longer shelf lives compared to fresh whole foods.
Here is a comparison to showing such a wide choice in healthy foods: The common CAFO Concentrated/Confined Animal Feeding Operation; animal meat is weak with a measurable amount of ‘vitamin “E”s and omega-3’s’ in the hundreds of molecules per gram of mass; when grass feed beef is in the thousands per gram of mass; considered a better healthier serving. Now this is just an example of the need to switch to fresh whole foods higher in vitamin “E” and sound higher volumes of omega-3 fatty acids over omega-6s. The other point is the shelf life of these precious valuable yet volatile oils is killed swiftly in time (shelf life) and temperature extremes. A jar of flax seed placed in the kitchen window or open store bulk bin will have less good 3’s than that same dark jar or packaging placed in the refrigerator to retain light and temperature control to retain the higher levels of volatile oils.
My allergy and intolerance sensitivities beyond gluten require that I supplement along with fresher better food choices which leads to my daily EPA/DHA capsule taken with meals. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); this brand has been molecularly distilled to get out the toxic heavy metals of cadmium lead and mercury found high in current samples of ocean fish oils. Doctors recommend 100-400 IUs of vitamin “E” from foods and supplements every day.
Studies have shown major improvement in lives for people prone to or fully have any of these low in vitamin and fatty acid signs. Here are some signs for a need of higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acid in the diet: Depression, heart disease, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, fatigue, infertility, cancer, dry itchy skin, brittle hair and nails, inability to concentrate, joint pain, autoimmune conditions and inflammation.
Vitamin E works better when taken with the trace mineral selenium, Vitamin A, beta carotene, and vitamin “C”
Vitamin “E” is harmed by antacids, some cholesterol lowering drugs, and high levels of stress.
Here are some of the other paces I got my facts

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
