    More about Essential Fatty Acids

    Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are the two main classes of essential fatty acids. Linolenic acid is the parent compound of omega-3s, and linoleic acid is the parent compound of omega-6s. These unsaturated fatty acids are important for the normal function of the body's tissues.

    Certain essential fatty acids provide benefits related to cell membrane structure and function, heart health, central nervous system function, normal retina development and function, joint comfort, lipid mediator production, normal immune and inflammatory response, gene expression, thyroid and adrenal activity, hormone production, liver function and much more!

    Food sources of omega-3s include pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, tofu, tempeh, walnuts and dark green veggies. Omega-6 fatty acids are found in nuts, seeds, legumes, dairy and grains. If you do not care for many of these foods, you may consider taking an essential fatty acid supplement.
