Essential EFA (New Formula)

Source of omega 3 fatty acids for the maintenance of good health. Helps support cognitive health and/or brain function.

The watch word for better health used to be ‘low-fat’, but after many years of low-fat diets without the expected reductions in obesity, cancer, heart attack, and other illness rates, many experts now recommend replacing unhealthy fats with good fats rather than lowering overall fat intake. In fact, supplementing the diet with concentrated, therapeutic fatty acids has been proven to have beneficial effects on mood, arthritis, eczema and psoriasis, cardiovascular health, eye health, and even weight management. The two main families of good fats are called omega 3 found in fish and flax oils and omega 6 found in borage oil. The specific omega 3 fatty acids that are responsible for the beneficial effects of fish oil are called EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). The active fatty acid in omega 6 is GLA (gamma linolenic acid). Unfortunately, it is not easy to obtain enough of these compounds from our diet. As a multivitamin fills in dietary gaps of vitamins and minerals from our food, a multiple fatty acid supplement such as SISU Essential EFA combines both omega 3 and 6 fats from animal and plant sources and provides some of the nutrients you need to achieve and maintain vibrant health.
