EFAs Impact 5 Vital Health Functions

(1) Cell Membrane Integrity: Our body needs EFAs to manufacture, repair and maintain fluidity of cell membranes, enabling each cell to effectively obtain nutrition and expel waste products.

Cell membrane Integrity

(2) Cellular Energy Production: Double carbon bonds, unique to EFAs, provide reactive sites for oxidation.In the cell membrane, this feature attracts oxygen needed by the cell to produce energy.

Cellular Energy Production

(3) Local “Hormones”: EFAs produce eicosanoids (Families of short-lived, hormone-like signals), which regulate body functions, such as heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility, conception, kidney function and also play a role in immune function by regulating inflammation and encouraging the body to fight infection.
