Dietary advice

How to maintain your fatty acid balance for life

A balanced anti-inflammatory diet must be maintained throughout the  life span.


When you follow our longer term or fast track dietary advice to restore your normal Omega-6/Omega-3 fatty acid balance, a stable situation will be achieved after approximately 120 days. However, if you return to a pro-inflammatory diet you will risk reverting back to the initial condition within the same time span (Figure 1).

A body weight balanced quantity of BioActive Foods Oil or BioActive Foods Powder will restore and maintain a balanced and anti-inflammatory diet by increasing the intake of biologically active antioxidants (polyphenols) from olives and simultaneously reducing Omega-6 (AA)/Omega-3 (EPA) Balance to near 3:1 (Figure 2).

The longer term body weight balanced daily quantity of BioActive Foods Oil or BioActive Foods Powder required is; 0.15 ml oil/kg body weight or 0.35 g powder/kg body weight.
