What Are Essential Fatty Acids?
There are two essential fatty acids (EFAs) that the body requires for health, but that it cannot manufacture itself. These two EFAs are linoleic and linolenic acids. EFAs have several vital physiological functions. They increase metabolic rate, improve metabolism, increase oxygen uptake and increase energy production. EFA"s and their derivatives are components of membranes that surround each cell. Lack of EFA"s cause cells to leak, thus allowing beneficial substances to leak out and harmful substances to sneak in. EFA"s are required for the transport and metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides. They can lower high cholesterol levels by 25% and high triglycerides by 65%. In addition, they are required for the normal development of the brain and brain function in the adult. Finally, the body makes hormone-like substances called prostaglandins from EFA"s. Prostaglandins regulate arterial muscle tone, sodium excretion through the kidneys, platelet stickiness, inflammatory response and immune functions. The best source of EFA"s is flaxseed oil.
For all individuals, especially those who eat a lot of processed foods and/or not enough deep sea fish.
