Essential Fatty Acids

Essential Fatty acids are just that "essential". Our bodies don't make them which means we must get them from diet. The two biggies are omega 6 and omega 3. Linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid.

Some functions are:
-brain development
-cell wall or membrane formation
-hormone production
-thyroid and adrenal function

If someone is not getting much fat in their diet, like a vegetarian for example, they need to supplement this. Research has shown us that proper EFA'sin the diet are linked to a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease. It is also linked to a lower incidence of Alzheimer's disease.
