She shares her vast knowledge of essential fatty-acids, (namely omega-6 and omega-3) as well as their key role in our health.

While it is vital that we maintain a balanced ratio of these fatty acids, Artemis explains how the modern diet and the introduction of vegetable oils to our food supply has made this more difficult.

Artemis is very passionate about the evolutionary aspects of diet and nutrition and has conducted numerous research on the effects of the omega-6/omega-3 ratio on our health.

We also get a chance to talk about how an imbalanced ratio causes inflammation which is an underlying cause of numerous chronic diseases we see today.

If you know someone who is interested in learning more about:
👉What are omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids
👉Why is having a balanced ratio of these acids important for health
👉What is the ideal ratio
👉How can I find out what my ratio is
👉How can I improve my ratio
👉What foods are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids and what to avoid
👉Should I consider taking supplements

Then this interview is for them.

I really enjoyed this interview as Artemis has given us a thorough overview on the important things to be aware of about this ratio.

Her practical tips on how we can go about improving it were also super helpful.

Special thanks to Artemis for joining me on the show.
