Essential Fatty Acids are indeed essential – one’s body uses these compounds in a number of vital processes. EFA deficiency can cause serious health problems. Because one’s cells need Essential Fatty Acids to perform basic biochemical tasks, it’s not surprising that a deficiency in EFAs can cause serious issues. EFA deficiency has been associated with dry scaly skin, course and sparse hair, rheumatoid disorders, cardiovascular disease and even brain dysfunction.
On the other hand, when one’s body has the right amount of EFAs and when the various compounds are in the right proportion, cells function properly. In addition, they burn calories at a higher rate, which improves weight loss results.
The human body cannot produce EFAs, so it is necessary to include them in one’s diet. This is even more important for weight loss patients, who run a greater risk of deficiency.
There are two main types of EFAs, known as the Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids. Studies show that dieters are often deficient in both types. HealthWise Nutritionists created a formula that includes both the Omega 3 and Omega 6 in proportions that many studies have shown to be most bio-identical.
EFAs have been shown to increase Thermogenesis. Scientists call burning calories, Thermogenesis. This means one’s cells burn calories to provide energy to perform their function. In addition, they increase the ability of one’s liver to burn fats. Also, one study showed that GLA (a component of the HealthWise brand, Nature’s EFA) helped with weight loss and lowered blood pressure in overweight patients. Even if one is not in a weight loss program, they will benefit from EFAs as they are an essential part of any diet.
By taking EFA’s like Nature’s EFA, one will avoid the health problems that come with deficiency and get the added benefit from having the right amount of essential fatty acids including better insulin function, improved skin tone and increased stamina.
