EFA Definition
What Are EFAs?

Essential Fatty Acids are the "good fats" needed by your body for good overall health and bodily functions including weight loss. Some of these include EPA, DHA, GLA, CLA, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are fatty acids which need in required amount to the body through diet because the body cannot synthesize essential fatty acids. They are present in every healthy cell in the body, and are critical for the normal growth and functioning of the cells, muscles, nerves, and organs. EFAs are also used by the body to produce a class of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins, which are essential for many important processes. Essential fatty acids are of two types, omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids, depending on their chemical composition. Essential fatty acids must be obtained from foods such as nuts, oilseeds and their products (e.g. sunflower oil and other vegetable oils), and oil-rich fish. They are used as the raw material for several compounds, such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes, which help to control blood pressure and other vital bodily activities. Lack of essential fatty acid may result in heart disease, diabetes, hyperactivity, reduced growth, and even death.
