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: To dramatically improve human health, happiness, and longevity through my unique vision of diet and nutrition.
I believe I’ve discovered some unconventional truths about human nutrition. The Gundry MD philosophy is a radical departure from the traditional dietary “wisdom” which has failed so many Americans over the past few decades.
My research may offer a breakthrough for those of you who have struggled for years with your energy levels, your body, and your health. If you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked… I’d like to offer you HOPE.”
We are including a great piece from Dr. Gundry on this new partnership:
“You know me – revealing health paradoxes are my speciality. Here’s a real paradox for those of you who eat fish for its health benefits. Did you know that if you eat a regular diet of farmed fish, it can actually be pretty toxic?
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.”
