The North American diet is almost completely void of the essential fatty acid Omega3. Researchers believe that at least 60% of North Americans are presently deficient in Omega3 fatty acids and that children are obtaining almost none of it in their diet. In fact, the deficiency of in the North American diet has now been linked to an extensive list of health-related problems cited in over 2,000 scientific studies.
They are considered essential fatty acids, which means that they are essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. The National Institutes of Health and International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL) recommends that individuals consume at least 220mg daily of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), the most important Om3 fatty acids, and that pregnant and nursing women consume at least 300mg daily.
For comparison purposes, there is 100mg of DHA per 1/4 cup of canned tuna. The Xoçai™ Squares™ have a minimum of 200mg of DHA and EPA per three 11 gram squares. The Xoçai™ Squares™ are an excellent source and promotes the necessary balance of essential fatty acids through the Açaí Berry, flaxseed and a patented, plant-based, encapsulated Omeg3.
It is important to maintain an appropriate balance of each in your diet as these two substances work together to promote better health. A healthy diet should consist of roughly two times more the Om6 fatty acids than Om3 fatty acids (2:1).
Many researchers suggested that the present excessive levels of Om6 fatty acids, relative to Om3 fatty acids (10:1), in the North American diet has created a significant imbalance and is a major factor in the rising rate of diseases in the United States. Om9 fatty acids are not classified as essential fatty acids, because they can be created by the human body from unsaturated fat.
The Xoçai™ Squares™ has been developed to provide your body the essential fatty acids for preventative and better health during every stage of your life! Back to the top of Omega Squares™
