Nutritional Therapist Joanne Gribbin, Of LifeForce Nutrition, helps explain what this means:
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) – Omegas 3 & 6
Essential fats (polyunsaturated) are so named as they are essential for your health, and must be included in the diet, as they are not produced in the body. Getting the balance of essential fats is key to long-lasting health.
Omega 3: Omega 3 fatty acids are highly anti-inflammatory. They help to regulate our immune system and they the essential in balancing good and bad cholesterol ratios.
Omega 6: Along with Omega 3, Omega 6 fatty acids are essential for the brain, bone and skin development and health, the metabolism and regulation of the immune system. Omega 3 and Omega 6 help to regulate inflammation in the body – Omega 6 tends to promote inflammation, highlighting the need for balance of essential fats in the diet.

Newgrange Gold Oils are cold-pressed. This means the oil is not heated during the manufacturing process and therefore maintains all of its health benefits. This is something which everyone should ensure when choosing a culinary oil.
Rapeseed oil contains higher levels of omega 3 fats compared to other unsaturated fat oils, such as olive oil. It also has high levels of Vitamin E, an anti-oxidant, which naturally protects the oil from oxidation and rancidity.
