Essential Fatty Acids

image of foods with fatty acids.

One component of nutrition that deserves significant attention is essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs cannot be produced by the body and therefore must come from the food we eat. They are the main structural components of our cell membranes, and keep our cell walls healthy by allowing nutrients to flow in and toxins to flow out. The three main essential fatty acids are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9. Most people consume enough Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids in the form of vegetable oils. However, we are often deficit in Omega fatty acids that come from foods such as flax seed, fish and borage oil. Omega 3 fatty acids are known to help with cardiovascular, joint and skin health, and to improve mood. Supplementing daily with an EFA capsule or liquid oil is essential to properly nourish your body.

Testimonial

  • ""I felt hopeless about constant pain everywhere. Medical doctors wanted to give me paid meds, and for some of the issues, operations. Some of the pain they could not explain. The pain meds did not even help, but had side effects. " I am able to do more things now than before, and I no longer feel hopeless. Especially with a condition that no one ever mentioned. It is lymphatic system related. When I get my lymphatic system drainage attended to, so much pain is relieved and I feel much better. " At one time, years ago, I did not believe in chiropractic. But through the years, I have had times where I could hardly do anything, and was told by doctors that I must have surgery. I chose not to have surgery, so I definitely recommend chiropractic and nutrition.""
