As the name suggests, essential fatty acids are those that are essential or vital to the body. Even though the word fat has a negative connotation, these fatty acids are important for our survival. Unfortunately, they are not produced within the body, and they need to be taken from an external source. Two primary types of essential fatty acids exist. These are called Omega-3, and Omega-6 fatty acids. The Omega -3 fatty acids are very important. They help cell walls to form, and also help oxygen to circulate properly in the body.
A deficiency of Omega-3 can cause an irregular heartbeat, immune system issues, blood clots, decreased vision, and memory problems. Natural sources of these include walnuts, flaxseeds, spinach, salmon, and tuna etc. Omega- 6 is needed to fight cancer, arthritis, and skin problems. Foods that are rich in these include chicken, olive oil, and pistachios. Our Omega-3 fatty acid supplements come in the form of cod liver/krill oil or gel caps. We carry some of the most reputed brands in the business including Nordic Naturals, Norwegian Gold, Renew Life, Solgar, and Carlson for pure essential fatty acid supplements.
