 Health from the Sun's Total EFA

Description

Health from the Sun's Total EFA is a complete blend of Omega 3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids (EFAs) derived from flaxseed oil, fish oil, borage seed oil and olive oil. Omega 3s, 6s and 9s offer multiple benefits including heart health, healthy mental function, anti-inflammatory effects, hormonal regulation, joint health, healthy skin and weight management. Many people are deficient in essential fatty acids because the body can't make them from other substances and they must be supplied by the diet. Therefore, supplementation with EFAs may have important nutritional benefits.

Omega 3 oils derived from fish contain the essential fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Flaxseed contains the omega 3 essential fatty acid known as ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), which requires conversion into EPA and DHA. Borage oil contains the omega 6 essential fatty acid known as GLA (gamma linolenic acid). Olive oil contains the omega 9 essential fatty acid known as oleic acid. GLA EPA, DHA, ALA, GLA and oleic acid are precursors to beneficial prostaglandins - hormone-like regulatory compounds that are involved in vital body functions.

Total EFA also contains 15 percent organic flax particulate which supplies plant lignans. Flaxseed lignans are natural plant chemicals that are more commonly known as phytoestrogens. Studies suggest that flaxseed lignans may have anticancer properties and beneficial hormonal actions in women.

Research also suggests that EFA supplementation can lower the risk of heart disease, inflammation, obesity, cancer, skin disorders, arthritis and other chronic health problems.
