Overview: Omega-3 many benefits include helping vitamin D

Omega-3 and Vitamin D separately and together help with Depression, Cardiovascular, Cognition, Pregnancy, Infant, Obesity, Mortality, Breast Cancer, . . . 

Fatty acids and Omega-3

There are many books on Omega-3: I have read the following

The Omega-3 Effect
Everything you need to know about the superrnutrient for living longer, happier, and healthier
Willian Sears, 2012 Amazon $9.34
The Queen of Fats
Why Omega-3s were removed from the western diet and what we can do to replace them
Susan Allport, 2006, Amazon $14 kindle

Notes by Admin of VitaminDWiki Dec 2012

  • Aroma of food is stored in the fat.
  • Certain fats are much more likely to go rancid than others and develop off flavors.
  • Animals tend to store excess energy in fat.
  • Linolenic acid in 10X less stable than linoleic acid: This form of Omega-3 has a short shelf life discovered 1952
  • Israel is the top consumer (per person) of Linoleic acid in the world (30 grams), and have a high rate of heart attack, similar to the US, but with less meat.
  • Greens are high in Omega-3
  • Should have a low ratio of Omega-6 to Omega 3: US has a high ratio of 10, Sweden has 5, Japan has only 2
    Japan have highest life expectancy AND highest Omega-3 consumption in the world (as well as a very high consumption of Vitamin K2)
  • PUFA was the only way to describe all Omegas until 1964
  • Ratios in foods: Flaxseed oil 0.2, Canola 2, Walnut 5, Corn 46
  • Far less saturated fat in wild animals than domesticated (1968)
  • Omega-3 reduced future heart attacks in Intervention clinical trial
    Intervention trial with 11,000 people who already had a heart attack. DHA and EPA 850 mg or placebo.
    Within 3 years 45% fewer Sudden Deaths due to subsequent heart attacks.

Additional thoughts from reading The Queen of Fats

  • Omega-3 promoters encounter even more resistance than do Vitamin D3 promoters
    Economic resistance from food industry (shelf life) only Omega-3, medical industry opposed to change: Omega-3 and D3
  • Wonder – do Americans pay more on health care than they do on food?
    Answer YES: 16% on health care and 10% on food - as % of disposable income or % of GDP Breakdown by income level
    40 years ago the %s of O-3 and O-6 were almost reversed.
  • The goal of eating a balanced diet without supplements no longer makes sense when our food is no longer balanced

Increase Omega-3 from cows by feeding them more Omega-3

Omega-3 from cattle vanish after eating grain in the feedlot

Note:By US definitions Grass fed beed can be grain finished in a feedlot since the definitions are not regulations nor are they checked.
Also: the defintions allow feeding grain for about half of the year - when the grass is not growing
Fatty Acid Analysis of Grass-fed and Grain-fed Beef Tallow Masterjohn Jan 2014
    Total PUFA Grain: 3.45% Grass: 1.9%

NOTE: PDF of a 2010 study of Cattle and Omega-3 is attached at the bottom of this page
