Essential Fatty Acids

Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) are fatty acids that humans and other animals must ingest because the body cannot synthesize them, but requires them for good health. Numerous conditions have been found to benefit from EFA supplementation. Omega-3 and Omega-6 make up the two families of essential fatty acids, Omega-9 is necessary but non essential.  They are called essential fatty acids  because they must be acquired from the diet, they cannot be manufactured by the body.  We provide a large range of sustainable fatty acids of the highest quality and purity.

Despite the word ‘fat’ being used, this is not indicative of an unhealthy product going into your body; in fact, without any source of fat whatsoever, the body would not run in the way it is supposed to. The key is to ensure that you fuel your body with the right fats and understand that fat isn’t just fat, it’s a nutrient.

Without essential fatty acids in your system, you are potentially damaging your health and as the body doesn’t produce these fatty acids itself, it’s down to you to provide them.

The two fats that are deemed essential for humans are alpha linolenic acid (omega-3 fatty acid) and linolenic acid (omega-6 fatty acid). Many people get their fill of essential fatty acids from food resources, but many need to supplement them in other ways to ensure that they are getting the correct amount.
