I have done research on Omega 3, 6 and 9's. I understand what types of fats they are, and their sources. I've read that Omega 3's should be supplemented in your diet ie/ground flaxseeds, but that with Omega 6 and 9 a supplement isn't necessary. Also that Omega 6 increases inflammation and Omega 3 and 9's decrease inflamation. I have Fibromyalgia so I don't want inflammation increased. I eat almonds everyday and only usually use olive oil (monosaturated fats-Omega 9's). Recently I started eating ground flaxseed. Honestly I am totally confused at this point. What ratio of Omega 3, 6 and 9's should I be getting in my diet?
