Good Fats—Unsaturated Fats (usually soft at room temperature and often called oils) are of two varieties—polyunsaturated and monounsaturated—and are found in products derived from plant sources. Polyunsaturated fats are found in high concentrations in chia seeds, flaxseeds, fish oil, and borage seed oil. Monounsaturated fats are found in high concentrations in olives, nuts, and avocados. Omega-3s and omega-6s are types of polyunsaturated fats that are essential for normal growth and may play an important role in the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease, hypertension, arthritis, cancer, and other inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. Because most of the foods people eat are high in omega-6, most people eat too much omega-6 and are deficient in omega-3s.
