EFA Liquid is a blend of fish, flax, and evening primrose seed oils that helps maintain optimal health. Fish oils provide omega-3 fatty acids that help to support brain and cardiovascular health. DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain, and both DHA and EPA are highly present on neuronal synapses.1,2 Supplementation with fish oils has been associated with the maintenance of neuron function in the hippocampus, a region of the brain associated with memory, which indicates that DHA and EPA may improve cognition.2 Flax and evening primrose oils provide omega-6 fatty acids LA and GLA that further maintain good health. The structure and function of skin – including the maintenance of epidermal barrier integrity and protection against the loss of electrolytes and water – depends on fatty acid composition.3,4 As decreased levels of omega-3 and 6 fatty acids have been associated with impaired epithelial cell function, including the loss of moisture in the eyes and skin, combined supplementation with both fatty acid types may better maintain optimal health.3,4
