A multiple fatty-acid supplement combining omega 3 and 6 fats from fish, flax and borage oils, Essential EFA provides some of the nutrients needed to achieve and maintain vibrant health. Containing EPA, DHA and GLA fatty acids, these soft-gel capsules are beneficial for eye, skin and cardiovascular health, brain function and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and eczema.
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 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 fish and plant sources and provides some of the nutrients you need to achieve and maintain vibrant health.
