Omega-3, Omega-6 and CLA
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid classed with the polyunsaturated fats. This substance has been found to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Omega-6 is a closely related fatty acid that is commonly present with Omega-3. While increased amounts of Omega-3 fats have proven to be beneficial the inverse is true of the Omega-6 fats. The best way to judge whether the Omega content of a product is helpful is to look at the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats.
Commodity beef typically has an Omega ratio of 20:1 to 30:1. The Buffalo Guys meat has a very beneficial ratio of about 6:1. Click here to see the actual lab reports done on our very own meat.
CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a substance that has been attributed with various antioxidant and anti-tumor properties. Studies on CLA in humans show a tendency for reduced body fat, particularly abdominal fat, changes in serum total lipids and decreased whole body glucose uptake.
