Phyto EFA: A New Era in EFAs

What are EFAs and Why Do We Need Them?

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are fatty acids (omega-3 & 6) needed to maintain normal function of many systems; however, these EFAs cannot be produced by the body and must be introduced through diet or supplementation. Omega-3 & 6 fatty acids are crucial because they help maintain normal tissue and cell membrane function. Cellular health affects the entire body, and EFAs help maintain the normal development processes, such as brain and retinal development.

Of all EFA forms, you will commonly hear about a few—ALA, SDA, DHA, LA, and GLA. These forms help maintain normal immune and inflammatory response as well as normal cardiovascular, endocrine, and reproductive health. The body, in its innate wisdom, determines what form of EFA it needs most and can convert ALA and LA to the most needed form. By providing the body with multiple forms of bioavailable EFAs, the body can begin assimilation without having to expend energy in the conversion process. Energetix’s new product, Phyto EFA, contains these 5 EFAs in a bioavailable, liquid form that blends Ahiflower® seed oil and algal oil to provide omega-3 & 6 fatty acids. Questions about EFAs?
