 Natural Factors’ Learning Factors

Description

Natural Factors' Learning Factors delivers essential fatty acid (EFA) rich oils for brain health. It contains dolphin-friendly tuna oil (EPA and DHA), evening primrose oil (GLA), vitamin E and thyme oil. Learning Factors is specially formulated for children and adults who want to enhance mental focus, attention and concentration.

Since the brain is made up of a high concentration of fats, it must have optimum resources of healthy fats (like essential fatty acids) to function properly. Omega 3 essential fatty acids are found in flax seeds, green leafy vegetables, walnuts, and fatty fish such as salmon, tuna and sardines. Omega 3s found in tuna consist of biologically active EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are a precursor to beneficial prostaglandins (a hormone-like substance).

Omega 3s have been shown to improve ADHD symptoms and reduce the risk of heart disease, certain cancers and inflammation. Furthermore, research suggests DHA can support healthy brain development, improve cognitive ability and support visual development.

Evening primrose oil contains the omega 6 essential fatty acid known as GLA (gamma linolenic acid). The body converts GLA to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). GLA helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels and decrease the production of the inflammatory compound arachidonic acid. Vitamin E and thyme oil are potent antioxidants that preserve the fatty acids and optimize availability.
