The following four recommendations should be followed to achieve better health and optimal levels of essential fatty acids.
  • Reduce the amount of saturated fat and total fat in your diet as it can later lead to numerous cancers, heart disease and strokes. With the exception of nuts and seeds most plant foods are very low in fat. 
  • Eliminate the intake of margarine and other hydrogenated vegetable oils as their digestion process results in changing the structure of natural fatty acid to many "unnatural" fatty acid forms that interfere with the body's ability to utilize essential fatty acids. They are also being linked to heart disease and certain cancers.
  • Intake of one or two tablespoons of flaxseed oil daily will prove to be beneficial as it helps in restoring the proper level of essential fatty acids. Flaxseed oil is unique because it contains essential fatty acids, alpha-linolenic (an omega-3 fatty acid) and linolenic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid), in appreciable amounts. Flaxseed oil is the world's richest source of omege-3 fatty acids.
  • Limit total dietary fat intake to 20 to 30 percent of calories consumed (400 to 600 calories a day, based on a standard 2,000-calories -a -day diet).
