Take Fish Oil And Eat More Fats Rich In Omega 3
Omega oils are thought to act more like vitamins than fats. They are the starting point for a range of immune and inflammatory signalling chemicals in the body, that’s why they are great for your immune system. In a natural environment we would eat plenty of omega fats in a ratio of less than 7:1 omega 6 to omega 3 fats. In the modern world though we eat around 25:1 omega6 to omega3 and this can distort our immune and inflammatory processes.
To boost immune function and rebalance, take a fish oil supplement (which is high in the omega 3 fats DHA and EPA). Include hemp and flax oils as well as lower omega 6 nuts such as walnuts and macadamias in your diet – reduce the common, higher omega 6 vegetable oils like safflower, sunflower, canola, rice bran and corn – these are the oils highest in omega 6 fats which increase inflammation.
