EFA Complex 90sg is available by Progressive Labs.
Just as the body cannot make its own vitamins, there are also Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) that must be obtained through the diet or through supplementation. These EFAs have two major functions:
1. Structure: The EFAs are an important component of every tissue of the body, especially the brain and nervous system. If the body does not receive adequate amounts of these EFAs, many organ systems are unable to function properly.
2. Function: EFAs are precursors to Prostaglandins (PGs). Recent research has proven that due to food processing and the changing American diet, we are no longer getting an adequate amount of these EFAs. As a result, this has thrown off the proper synthesis of PGs and may be the primary cause in the surge of many degenerative diseases.
Even if we consume the ""perfect"" diet balanced in all essential nutrients, there are several factors that could interfere with proper PG synthesis. The most important and beneficial EFA is GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). GLA is manufactured from Linolenic Acid, but there are several factors that interfere with this conversion. If a patient has high levels of any of the following, they may have an extremely low level of GLA: 1. Cholesterol; 2. Alcohol; 3. Saturated Fats (i.e. red meats); and/or 4. Diabetes.
