The essential fatty acids "EFA"s" are poly-unsaturated fats that the body cannot manufacture and must be obtained from food and supplements. Essential fatty acids are "essential" because they produce prostaglandins, or in other words, provide the body with what it needs to manufacture cell membranes, which is the thin wall that surrounds all cells. Cell membranes regulate the passage of materials into and out of the cell. If a cell is damaged, the cell may not get the nutrition it needs to function properly.
When EFA levels are inadequate, a variety of problems develop including:
Hair loss, Dry, scaly skin, Irritability, Inflammatory states, Painful, swollen joints, Heart and circulatory abnormalities, Lethargy, Infertility, Liver dysfunction, Poor tissue structure, Abnormal brain development
