What are Essential Fatty Acids?
Essential fatty acids (EFA's) are used in the body for a wide range of important functions. A deficiency of EFA's can result in Arthritis, dry flaking skin and certain nervous system and visual difficulties. As well as this it is used for its cholesterol lowering effect. There are indications that conditions such as arthritis, asthma, diabetes, PMS, allergies, inflammatory diseases, skin diseases, constipation and fluid retention have all been assisted by including oil high in EFA's in the diet. EFA's are required by every cell in our body - as part of the structure of each cell and to regulate how it functions.
This is why such a wide range of symptoms may be seen with an EFA deficiency. EFA's, like vitamins, must be obtained from our food or supplements because our body cannot manufacture them. Efamol dietary supplements ensure an adequate supply of EFA's regardless of your diet. Evening Primrose oil, EPO, is a rich natural source of EFA's, in particular the rare Gamma Linolenic Acid - GLA, which is not found in common vegetable oils such as sunflower or olive oil.
