The Label Says... Polyunsaturated (Including Omega-3s and Omega-6s)

  • What it does: Reduces your risk for heart disease by decreasing LDL levels.
  • Where it comes from: Sunflower, corn, soybean, and walnut oils, as well as sesame seeds. Omega-3s are found in fatty fish (like salmon) and walnuts; omega-6s are in seeds, nuts, and vegetable oil.
  • How much you need: Again, 20 to 35 percent of your daily calories should come from fat, mainly from polyunsaturated and monounsaturated sources.
