Avacado omega 6 to omega 3 ratios
One of the primary reasons, as a cardiac patient concerned about inflammation, that I started to use CronoMeter was to track my micronutrients with an emphasis on keeping my omega 3and omega 6 as close to 1:1 as possible. I have always been told, and read, that avacado were a great source for omega 3. However, the CronoMeter system reflects avacado as having .28 grams of Omega 3 to 4.8 grams of mega 6. This is more like a 0:5 or a 1:5 ratio with 6 being the predominant omega fat. But, as you can see below, from a web source (one of many) that I use for reference and example, the ratio is more like 7mg of threes to 1mg of sixes, 7:1. I am wondering which is correct. I chose the nccdb avacado for my selection. The Florida Green. Has anyone else come across this. Was going to post as a bug, but want to be sure that I am not simply overlooking an obvious point before I submit as a bug. Any insight is appreciated. Take care and have a great day. 👍🤠
