Welcome to triply essential fatty acids
Two fatty acids - omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) and omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) are considered triply essential in that they are:
Most fatty acids prescribed by doctors or bought over the counter are damaged, diminished, polluted products that may help you to some extent, but you really need to get 'back to source' - organically-grown plants and seeds - and cold-press and blend your own LA/ALA fatty acid mix. In this way you will be providing your body with the full healing potential of these fatty acids because:
- truly triply essential.

Brian Peskin recommends that American adults weighing between 120 and 150 US pounds (54-68 kilograms) take at least three grams (three-quarters of a teaspoonful) daily of a mix of triply essential fatty acids with an omega-6:omega-3 ratio of between 1:1 and 2.5:1.The two triply essential fatty acids - What omega-6:omega-3 ALA ratios does the body need?
Different organs in the body require different mixes (ratios) of omega-6 EFAs to omega-3 EFAs to function properly. Overall the body needs much more omega-6 than omega-3.YES pristine, vibrant, 'raw' oils cold-pressed from organically-grown plants Ultimate Essential Fatty Acids
Triply essential versus 'derivative' fatty acids
Doubly or triply essential fatty acids are fatty acids which the human body cannot make and has to obtain by eating other animals, plants and animal and plant products. DFAs have been 'derived' from doubly or triply essential fatty acids by plants and animals for specific purposes. They are as important as the two doubly/triply essential fatty acids.Essential fatty acids - contra-indications
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are natural anti-coagulants. People who are haemophiliac, undergoing surgery or taking anti-coagulant drugs (including aspirin, heparin and warfarin), should have their coagulation status monitored when actively building up their EFA levels, etc.
EXTRASDr. Otto Warburg
Dr. Otto Warburg (1883-1970) was a doctor of chemistry, a doctor of medicine and a physiologist who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine in 1931. He hypothesised that a healthy cell begins to turn into a cancer cell when it and/or its mitochondria (energy-producing cells) regularly diffuse (draws in) too little oxygen from the bloodstream.The case against getting your omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils
Brian Peskin advises that (i) it is dangerously high in omega-3 and (ii) the omega-3 it contains is principally 'derivative'.Scottish farmed salmon omega-3 levels halved. So what?
In October 2016 BBC News flagged up that the average omega-3 essential fatty acid content of salmon grown in Scotland’s salmon farms had halved over the last five years.Breast cancer and oxygen deficiency - a hypothesis
In the 1950s, Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that inadequate levels of oxygen in tissue cells increased their risk of becoming cancerous.Brian Peskin's career in applied academics
Brian Peskin is the master nutritional analyst with a degree in electrical engineering who is convinced by:Essential fatty acids - the view from Paul Pitchford
"Since the use of vegetables is so widespread, it would seem that a lack of EFAs would seldom occur, but many oils contain rancid forms of these fatty acids ... As polyunsaturated oils oxidise and become progressively rancid they create free radicals in the body, which foster ageing and weaken immunity."Why doubly and triply essential fatty acids?
Within the fields of academic biology, medicine and nutrition the adjective ‘essential’ is used in three different ways.Doubly and triply essential minerals, vitamins and amino acids
The process of flagging up some fatty acids as 'essential' because of their importance for our health (essential) may be applied to other foods and nutrients, including mineral and vitamins.
