The Pure Essentials EFA Complex is a valuable blend of essential fatty acids recommended to safeguard health. While offering support for cardiovascular, mental, circulatory, and digestive health, EFA Complex increases immunity and energy.
EFAs (essential fatty acids/good fats) are not produced within the body and must be supplemented regularly in order for cells to absorb and maintain proper nutrition. Adding moisture to skin and eyes and encouraging mental soundness, EFA Complex also uses EPA and DHA, these two active ingredients found in fish oil are key structural component of the nerves, the brain, and retinal membranes.
EPA is also a very important part of the normal function of the human brain and without it scientists believe we could face an array of damaging mental effects from depression to schizophrenia.
The two primary EFAs are known as linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).
These EFAs are necessary for the following processes:
Formation of healthy cell membranes
Proper development and functioning of the brain and nervous system
Proper thyroid and adrenal activity
Regulation of blood pressure, liver function, immune and inflammatory responses
Regulation of blood clotting: Omega-6 FAs encourage blood clot formation, whereas Omega-3 oil reduces clotting. The ideal is to achieve a balance between omega-6 and omega-3 FAs
Crucial for the transport and breakdown of cholesterol
Support healthy skin and hair
Pure Essentials also contain the following:
CLA – Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): CLA is not actually an essential fatty acid, but a variation of linolenic acid, which is one of the essential omega 3 fatty acids. There have been substantial studies suggesting that CLA may increase metabolism and energy as well as help reduce the risk of certain types of cancers. Some studies have also clincially proven that CLA in large doses can reduce abdominal visceral body fat.
Borage Seed Oil: Borage Seed Oil is the most potent source of GLA. The benefits and research are very similar to Evening Primrose Oil, and the research is very exciting because it contains a much higher concentration of GLA.
GLA: or gamma linolenic acid is easy converted into DGLA or dihomagamma linolenic acid. From DGLA, the body rapidly makes PGE-1 or Series-1 Prostaglandins. These PGE-1 molecules are about 1/2 of your inflammation-fighting capability. Without them, you have a persistent tendency toward inflammation, which often leads to insulin resistance, obesity and many deadly diseases.
