Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are critical to proper function of the body. They are essential because the body cannot produce them on its own. They must come from the diet. The two primary EFAs are known as linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3).
These EFAs are necessary in proper balance for:
Formation of healthy cell membranes
Proper development and functioning of the brain and nervous system
Proper thyroid and adrenal activity
Regulation of blood pressure, liver function, immune and inflammatory responses
Regulation of blood clotting, Omega-6 FAs encourage blood clot formation, whereas Omega-3 oil reduces clotting. The ideal is to achieve a balance between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids
Crucial for the transport and breakdown of cholesterol
Support healthy skin and hair
Sources of Omega 3’s include flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, soybean and its products such as tofu and tempeh. Walnuts, and dark green veggies, such as kale, collards, chard, parsley, and cereal grasses (wheat & barley grasses), are also good sources. This is because all green (chlorophyll-rich) foods contain Omega-3 FA in their chloroplasts.
Sources of Omega-6 fatty acids include nuts, seeds, grains, legumes, and dairy.
