Essential Fatty Acids

 

Many people do not regularly consume adequate amounts of healthy essential fatty acids through the daily diet due to high intakes of over-processed foods and saturated fats. This imbalance in dietary fat intake can lead to negative health consequences. Essential fatty acids have the ability to convert into beneficial hormone like compounds, which may balance blood clotting and promote healthy inflammation marker levels.

Two types of essential fats — omega-3 and omega-6 — refer to the chemical structure of the fat molecules. Both are important to maintain adequate health.

Omega-3 fatty acids comprise one of the most talked-about dietary components today. A large body of scientific evidence points to this essential fatty acid's benefits for heart health, joint health, cognitive function and inflammatory conditions. Food sources of Omega-3s include certain cold water fish, walnuts and flax. Because vegetarian sources of these beneficial fats are important, we're offering a liquid flax oil for consumers interested in the multi-functional uses of this product.

Omega-3 Once Daily (Item #128)

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) have a part in running virtually every vital system in the human body. Many lack the proper amount of omega-3 fatty acids from their diet, so supplementation becomes important for overall health. This highly concentrated omega-3 fatty acid softgel contains more than twice as much eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) as many omega-3 products in a convenient one per day softgel.

Essential Fatty Acids
Ultimate Omega Complex™ (Item #138)

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are required on a daily basis for maintaining optimal health. While the typical diet provides plenty of fats, it generally does not provide the kind of fats required by the body. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are both classes of fatty acids that are referred to as essential. Providing a supplement that already contains the appropriate balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, the body is able to support cellular, nerve, metabolic, and cardiovascular systems in a more efficient manner.
