Vitamin F (Essential Fatty Acids)
DESCRIPTION::Essential fatty acids (EFAs) cannot be made by the body and have to
be supplied through nutrients. These EFA's are also known as unsaturated fatty acids
or polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are often advised to patients from doctors to
lower cholesterol levels, blood pressure levels and reduce strokes and heart attacks.
The most essential of all EFAs is linoleic acid. What does this mean? Your daily
requirement should be 10 - 20% of your total calorie intake of the day. Primrose
and Black Currant Oil contain very large amounts of linoleic acid. You can find cold
deep water fish containing more Omega 3 EFAs than any other source. Flax seed oil
