Healthy Fats: Essential Fatty Acids

Good Fats

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are essential lipids, often referred to as Vitamin F, the “good fats,” or the “fats that heal,” that are not manufactured by the body and are vital for optimum health, well-being and 90% of your energy. As integral components of all cells, they maintain the fluidity and stability of cell membranes and protect the body from harmful substances such as bacteria and viruses. They must be obtained through diet or supplementation with EFA-rich food oils.

EFA’s are essential to normal cell structure and the regulation of virtually every major body function, including blood pressure, fluid retention, blood cell stickiness, inflammation, allergies, fever and the immune system, just to name a few! Commercial refinement of fats, oils and food has effectively eliminated important essential fatty acids from our food chain, increasing the importance of dietary supplements.

Deficiency Issues

Without EFAs, deficiency symptoms will develop. Signs of EFA deficiency can include eczema and other skin disorders, hair loss, organ damage, impaired reproductive function, increased triglyceride and cholesterol levels, increased blood pressure and neurological dysfunction.

Well Balanced Blend

The World Health Organization suggests that 3-4% of the total daily caloric intake of normal adults should be in the form of these “good” EFAs. For children, pregnant and lactating women, the recommendation is 5-6%. Daily EFA is a comprehensive well-balanced blend of EFA nutritional oils and supplies your daily needs for EFAs in an ideal ratio of omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids and Daily EFA’s also provides EPA and DHA. EFAs are the most important of all the fats and an essential key to life!
