EFA ESSENTIALS DHA/EPA/CLA – OMEGA 3, 6, AND 9 EFAS IN THE RIGHT PROPORTIONS FOR A HEALTHIER YOU WHY YOU NEED ESSENTIAL OILS FROM EFA Essentials Some fat is good and in fact is essential for optimal health. EFA Essentials contains the best balance (4:1) of omega 3 to omega 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs), along with the beneficial omega 9 EFA and the most potent docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) / conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) combination. Finally, a product with the essential oils you need.* This is the philosophy and practice that has made EFA Essentials the gold standard of professionals across the country. Like many, you may associate fat with obesity and health risk. However, certain fats are required for healthy function; these are known as EFAs. EFA Essentials is a unique blend of oils: organic flax seed oil as well as olive and fish oils plus DHA and CLA. Finally, an essential oil product that meets EFA Essentials standards and brings the com- plicated issues of fat supplementation into one easy-to-use, source. EFAs are essential because they can only be obtained from the diet.The body is unable to manufacture them even though they are required for critical chemical reactions in the body. The average American diet is too high in harmful fats, and therefore, it is also deficient in EFAs. Foods lose EFAs through processing, exposure to air (oxygen), oxidants, and toxins (from lead and mercury to peroxides and sulfites); therefore, deficiencies have become more the rule than the exception. Only EFA Essentials gives you all the essential fats in one formula, and, as with all The Essentials products, its ingredients are of the highest action and purity.* Essential fatty acids may be divided into two primary groups: omega 3 (including DHA) and omega 6 fatty acids. In addition, omega 9 fatty acids and CLA are vital for complete health. EFAs are the source of the body’s potent prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that regulate many cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, hormonal, and nerve functions.* Considering its importance, it is not surprising that EFA deficiency is linked to many serious disease states, including: • Cardiovascular diseases. Arteriosclerosis is characterized by a build-up of plaque in the arteries. Omega-3 fatty acids act as blood thinners, helping to reduce the clotting and aggregation associated with this disease.They play an important role in preventing and treating arteriosclerosis. Studies show that individuals with a diet high in omega 3 fatty acids have significantly lower rates of heart disease. EFA Essentials also improves cardiovascular function.* •Inflammatory / autoimmune dis- eases. EFAs can benefit patients with inflam- matory diseases, such as asthma, arthritis, dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis. Omega 6 fatty acids are essential for the production of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins.* • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Deficiencies in EFAs have been associated with PMS.The anti-inflammatory effects of EFAs can relieve menstrual symptoms such as cramps, bloating, and nausea.* • Concentration and attention (atten- tion deficit disorder (ADD)/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)). Deficits in EFAs cause nerve electrical irritability that reduce attention span and decrease ability to concentrate.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
