The Wild Alaskan Seafood has been so excited about our recent partnership with the great Dr. Steven Gundry! As many of you know Dr. Gundry is a Ney York Times best selling author and founder of Gundry MD. To say it best we have included this quote from Dr. Gundry’s website, https://gundrymd.com/gundry-md/
“I founded Gundry MD with one mission:
Let me explain. Originally farmed fish were fed ground up small fish, loaded with Omega-3 fats, but because of cost, they are fed grains and beans, whose primary fat is Omega 6. When fish are fed an inflammatory fat diet of omega-6s instead of their natural diet of omega-3s, they accumulate higher levels of long chain Omega 6 fats and have a higher omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. So, sadly, that farm-raised fish is actually a really unhealthy thing for you to eat. Why?
The ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3’s in your diet is key. Normal ratios range should be 2-3/1 (Yes, normally there are more Omega 6s than 3s in a healthy diet) But our diet now has upwards of a 10/1 ratio due to the prevalence of vegetable oils like safflower, soy and canola and industrial-raised poultry / livestock!!
And this extremely high ratio spells trouble – it causes inflammation that eventually leads to a myriad of health issues.
And beware, organic farm raised or “sustainable” farm raised means the fish were also fed grains and soy = a high Omega 6 diet! Like I always say, you are what the fish was eating.
That’s why, if you’re going to eat seafood like I do 1-2 a week, I implore you to eat wild-caught fish / seafood that are rich in Omega-3s. Speaking of, I am about to cook up this delicious-looking wild-caught Alaskan salmon from the seafood subscription box, Wild Alaskan Seafood Box.”
