Essential Fatty Acids

image of foods with fatty acids.

One component of nutrition that deserves significant attention is essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs cannot be produced by the body and therefore must come from the food we eat. They are the main structural components of our cell membranes, and keep our cell walls healthy by allowing nutrients to flow in and toxins to flow out. The three main essential fatty acids are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9. Most people consume enough Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids in the form of vegetable oils. However, we are often deficit in Omega fatty acids that come from foods such as flax seed, fish and borage oil. Omega 3 fatty acids are known to help with cardiovascular, joint and skin health, and to improve mood. Supplementing daily with an EFA capsule or liquid oil is essential to properly nourish your body.

Testimonial

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "When I first met Dr. Nick, my two month old son Parker was constipated and unable to turn his head to the right due to Torticollis. I am happy with how quickly Parker has responded to his treatments. After only a few adjustments, Parker is no longer constipated and can move his neck freely. I am amazed by his movement! I strongly recommend infant chiropractic care to all parents!"
