What are Essential Fatty Acids?
Essential Fatty Acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats are considered “essential” because these fats are needed by the body for good health‚ yet they cannot be manufactured within the human body and must be aquired
through the diet. EFAs help the body every day to:
• Nourish active tissues‚ such as the brain‚ heart‚ eyes and kidneys
• Support healthy immune function and nervous system function
• Maintain circulatory health and healthy metabolism
• Support brain health and development
• Promote a positive mood
Although not considered essential (as the body can produce limited amounts on its own) Omega-9 fats are also important‚ as they have been shown to promote healthy inflammatory response and promote healthy immune function. Most people do not consume adequate amounts of essential fatty acids.
What is different about OilMax?
The EFAs in OilMax come from flax‚ borage and fish oil. OilMax also contains the fat-digesting enzyme lipase. Many people are hesitant to take fish oil because of the fishy taste and “repeat” that occurs with many supplements. Lipase is an enzyme that breaks down the fats in OilMax and helps to prevent the fishy aftertaste. Lipase also makes the EFAs in OilMax easier for the body to absorb. Each capsule is colored with carob to protect the oils from the damaging effects of light.
