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 are deficient in cofactor nutrients or lack the enzyme needed to convert flax oil to prostaglandins. This provides the necessary GLA to utilize the flax oil.
•Mass commercialization refinement of fat and oil products and foods containing them has effectively eliminated the essential fatty acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6, from our food chain and contribution to the modern day deficiency.
•The solution to this dilemma may be to supplement the diet with a flax/borage oil formulation. Flax seed oil is recognized as nature's richest source of essential and Omega-3 fatty acids.
•Borage seed oil is recognized as nature's richest source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
•Dietary essential fatty acids common to flaxseed oil are ultimately converted to hormone-like substances known as prostaglandins and are important for the regulation of a host of bodily functions.
•Twin contains certified organic flax and borage oil that is 100% expeller pressed below 96 degrees F to protect against the destructive effects of light, heat and oxygen.
