GB HealthWatch Links Genetic Makeup, Omega-6 and Nuts
Date:5/13/2013

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

The ‘healthy’ snack food nuts are not always the best choice for some people. Many nuts are rich in omega-6 fatty acids, which can lead to high triglycerides in people who carry APOA5 gene risk variants - about 30% of Asians and Hispanics, 20% of Africans, and 8% of Caucasians. Epidemiological studies have shown that when omega-6 intake is over 6% of total calories, these people are more likely to have higher triglyceride levels. When omega-6 intake is less than 6% in the diet, triglyceride levels are usually comparable to normal.

High triglycerides are a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. People who carry an APOA5 risk variant need to be especially careful about how much omega-6 they are getting in their diet to minimize this risk. Omega-3 is a fatty acid that counteracts the effects of omega-6 and provides cardiovascular benefit. By increasing intake of omega-3, risk can be minimized even further. GB HealthWatch is offering free access to its Diet Evaluator, an innovative online tool that analyzes omega-6 and omega-3 content, along with over 30 other nutrients in the diet. By monitoring omega-6 and omega-3 intake and using tips from the GB HealthWatch website, people can adjust their diet and make optimal food choices that better match with their genetic makeup. The Diet Evaluator tool, personalized for users by age and gender, provides detailed recommendations for dietary improvement.

It is important to be aware of what foods contain high omega-6 and what foods provide omega-3. One cup of peanuts or a half cup of sunflower seeds can easily boost omega-6 intake over the dangerou
