Product description

Natures Aid Complete EFA capsules each provide a rich blend of Omega 3, 6 and 9. Flaxseed Oil (Linseed Oil), Fish Oil and Starflower Oil (Borage Oil) are combined to provide a balanced ratio of these important fatty acids in one easy to take capsule. The Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, DHA and ALA have critical roles in cell membrane structure and in brain, joint, eye and cardiovascular health. The Omega-6 fatty acids LA and GLA are important in helping to maintain the hormonal balance which regulates and controls important bodily functions.
'Fat free'or 'less than 5% fat'foods are becoming more and more popular because in addition to the current fashion to be slim there is an association between fat in the diet and heart and arterial disease.
However, although it is true that our diets should not supply us with more than 30% of our calories as fat, there are certain fats that we do need for Good Health which the body cannot make.

These are termed Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) and they function as components of nerves cells, cell membranes and prostaglandins (hormone like substances). Most people's diets are lacking in these.

There are 2 types of EFA, omega-3 and omega-6, and because these both produce different types of prostaglandin they must be taken in the correct ratio to ensure that a favourable balance is achieved.

Ideally we need four times as much Omega-6 as Omega-3 fatty acids, but because our diets already supply much omega-6 and little omega-3 EFA's, to redress the balance with a supplement, higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids are required. Fish Oil and Flaxseed Oil are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and Flaxseed Oil and Starflower Oil are rich in omega-6 fatty acids.

All three oils provide a source of omega-9 fatty acids which are stable and resist oxidative damage. Because they are liquid at body temperature they help keep our arteries supple.
