New Study 👇👇
If you feel like your metabolism is slowing, your weight is creeping up, or your energy is low….this post is for you.
What you need to know is there are 2 driving forces behind a sluggish metabolism:
✅ Insulin Resistance
✅ Chronic Inflammation
And also that we have 🙌loads of ways to reverse these things🙌
A new study found a direct link between blood levels of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids and key markers of metabolic health in middle-aged adults:
😥 Higher levels of omega-6 were linked with worse levels of insulin resistance, inflammation, and cholesterol—not a good thing.
😀 Higher levels of omega-3 were linked with healthier metabolic markers.
This is easy to influence by the foods we eat!
✖️ Main food sources of omega-6 fats are refined oils and processed foods
✔️ Main food sources of omega-3 fats are nuts, seeds, and seafood
I work with my clients to find foods and recipes that fit their lifestyle AND support their health.
To optimize your omega 3 levels, consider measuring your levels of omega-3 and omega-6. Test, don’t guess! Request a session with Dr. Ryan here to order the testing.
