In this video, we’re going to talk about the first sign of vitamin F deficiency.

What is vitamin F? Vitamin F is no longer considered a vitamin because it doesn’t fit the traditional definition of a vitamin. Vitamin F is the combination of two essential fatty acids.

Essential fatty acids are fats that must come from your diet—your body can’t make them.

Vitamin F is ALA (alpha-linoleic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid, and LA (linoleic acid), an omega-6 fatty acid.

Every single organ in your body needs these two essential fatty acids.

They help you absorb calcium, build cell structures, maintain cell flexibility, and grow cells.

The problem with a typical Western diet is that it includes far too many omega-6 fatty acids and far too few omega-3 fatty acids. In a Western diet, people consume between 10 to 20x more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids (10-20:1 ratio). This ratio should be 2:1 or 1:1.

The first sign of symptom of a vitamin F deficiency is dry, flaky skin.

If you have this problem, make sure you begin to restore a healthy ratio of omega-6 to omega-3.

It’s best to get your omega-3 fatty acids from natural sources, like fatty fish, fish oil, and cod liver oil.

Vitamin F deficiency can cause:
• Prostate enlargement
• Inflammation
• Vision problems
• Heart problems
• Brain problems

The best sources of vitamin F/omega-3 fatty acids are:
• Avocados
• Greens
• Almonds and walnuts
• Sprouts
• Chia
• Sunflower seeds
• Olive oil
• Fish (especially fatty fish)
• Eggs

Avoid junk food, processed foods, and fast foods.
