    Actually the best ratio is a 1:3 Ratio of n3:n6 respectively. Omega 9, unsaturated fatty acids such as Oleic acid and Erucic acid are not essential fatty acids. They have excellen health benefits so you should take them but they are not essential.

    so omega 3 must be lower than omega 6 by ratio 3 to 1

    Keep in mind that you probably get more n-6's than you know. So the key is to n-3 supplementation.

    Fish oil is the preferred source of n-3's because of the readily available epa/dha. I don't even use linseed(flax) oil anymore.

    Olive oil is actually mostly omega 9 but it's fine to mix the 2.

    Jodi, I'm taking 6 fish oil pills along with Health From the Sun's Total EFA oil. To eliminate the oil how many fish oil pills should I consume.

    6-10 per day is good. Depends on the potency of epa/dha.

    Perhaps a useful read:

    http://www.nohypehealth.org/fats.html

    The importance of mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) balanced in diet against polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)"

    http://www.nutraingredients-usa.com/...saturated-fats

    The benefit of olive oil lies in its ratio of saturated to unsaturated fats 13:75 (remainder PUFAs) and its phytosterol and vitamin E rich content, both of which are potent antioxidants. Hmm, I think the PUFA content of olive oil is primarily n-6 and n-3 (low ratio).
