Easy tips for a better Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio.
"What if Alaskan wild salmon isn't available? Aren't there other options to balancing out the omega 3 and 6 ratio? This article doesn't seem very helpful. "
2. Swap your oils.
To limit omega-6 fats, use olive oil whenever possible; it’s naturally low in omega-6s (about 1.3 grams per tablespoon). Canola, peanut and sesame oils provide moderate amounts of omega-6s (2.7, 4.3 and 5.6 grams per tablespoon, respectively). Avoid soy, corn, cottonseed, safflower and sunflower oils, which are packed with omega-6 fats (7-plus grams per tablespoon).
