Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are fats that are very important nutrients for health. The body cannot produce them so they must be gotten from your diet. EFAs are present in every cell in your body and are key to normal growth and functioning of cells, muscles, nerves and organs.

It is estimated that as many as 80% of Americans consume too little quantities of EFAs, a deficiency of which may result in serious problems including heart disease, and diabetes, omega-6 EFAs are more common in our diet than omega-3 EFAs but both types are necessary in a healthy diet.

A balance is recommended between omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs with a desirable ratio of one to one up to one to three. Unfortunately, Americans currently consume these EFAs in a ratio up to one to 40! Overuse of omega-6 EFAs can lead to diabetes and obesity. The American Heart Association has endorsed omega-3 fatty acids as good for the heart. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. There is strong evidence to suggest that two common EFAs (GLA and HDA) can help with menopausal issues and DHA is critical to brain function.  More research is needed before conclusive health benefits can be established. 

Rather than trying to choose between fish oil, flax seed oil, and borage oil as your source for essential fatty acids, why not take a supplement that includes all three? This ensures you are getting all the benefits from the different types of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. No other EFA supplement is as complete.
