A sustainable plant source of Essential Fatty Acids
Humans literally must have Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) in order to live. That’s why they’re called “essential.” Since our bodies cannot manufacture EFAs, we need to acquire them from food or supplements.*Because they support nutrient absorption and membrane integrity of all the body’s cells, Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) influence the health and wellness of all major body systems and organs.
These “good fats” do hundreds of crucial jobs, from promoting normal hormonal balance to supporting cardiovascular health. They also support cellular membrane integrity, which affects EVERY organ and tissue in the human body. They’re truly essential to a whole health regimen.*
The body requires EFAs to help:
- > Maintain healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range*
- > Promote heart health and arterial integrity*
- > Maintain healthy mood, focus, mental clarity, and cognitive function*
- > Support the body’s normal, balanced inflammation response*
- > Support a balanced immune response*
- > Maintain bone and joint health*
- > Maintain healthy permeability of the intestinal lining*
- > Support dermal health*
