Essential Fatty Acids are just that…Essential!


Some people feel that fat is a nutrient that should be avoided at all costs, but that is not the case.
There are two fatty acids that are essential for life: linoleic acid in the Omega-6 family and linolenic acid in the Omega-3 family. Essential fatty acids have many important functions and are the building blocks of membranes around and within cells. The brain is the most membrane-rich tissue in the body, so it should be no surprise that brain function depends on an adequate supply of the right fatty acids.

The human body cannot produce essential fatty acids so we depend solely on our diets to supply them. It has been estimated by many researchers in the field that approximately 80% of the population of the United States consumes inadequate quantities of essential fatty acids. Clinical studies have shown that sufficient intake of essential fatty acids can lower cholesterol; and triglyceride levels, reduce the risk of heart attack and have shown benefit in lowering blood pressure.

The American Heart association has recommended that everyone increase the amount of fish in their diets. Fatty fish such as salmon should be eaten at least twice weekly. Many people have concerns regarding consuming large quantities of fish due to the high metal content of some fish. If you fall into this category consider supplements that will take the place of fish consumption.

By adding adequate quantities of a supplement, such as our Emu Oil Gel-Caps, containing the necessary essential fatty acids you may be able to normalize blood pressure, prevent the complications of diabetes, improve arthritis and blood circulation and increase the effectiveness of your immune system. Many studies prove that balancing the essential fatty acids in your diet can prevent and reverse many psychiatric disorders including depression.

Why not take the initiative in this small, but vital self-help step to healthier living?
