Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are fats that are very important nutrients for health, however as the body cannot produce them, they must be ingested through your diet.
EFAs are present in every cell in your body and are key to normal growth and functioning of cells, muscles, nerves and organs.
A balance is recommended between omega-3 and omega-6 EFA,s with a desirable ratio of 1:1 up to 1:3.
Overuse of omega-6 EFAs can lead to diabetes and obesity so it is important to keep a balance between the omegas.
Through the years, hundreds of studies have established that diets high in omega-3 fatty acids experience a decrease in the risk of heart attack, stroke and abnormal heart rhythms.
Omega-3 fatty acids also support normal cholesterol levels. They also protect the heart by preventing blood clots and keeping other fats from injuring arterial walls.
Two of the most common EFAs are gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
GLA is utilised by the body to produce prostaglandins. During premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or menopause, these hormone-like substances may be out of balance.
GLA may be helpful for relieving PMS symptoms, regulating the menstrual cycle and easing hot flashes and mood swings often associated with menopause.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid essential to the proper functioning of our brains as adults. Lack of sufficient DHA may be associated with impaired mental ability as well as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. Low levels have also been associated with depression and Alzheimer’s in adults.
Rather than trying to choose between fish oil, flax seed oil, and borage oil as your source for essential fatty acids, this ideal supplement combines all three!
This ensures you are getting all the benefits from the different types of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids.
