Unique formulation providing important fatty acids to help maintain BRAIN and EYE FUNCTION
A large proportion of the human brain is made up of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCP’s). These fatty acids play an important role in brain cell function, nervous system development and vision. Although essential fatty acids can be obtained through our daily diet and converted by the body into LCP’s, it is often difficult to maintain an adequate supply.
With its unique combination of fish oils and evening primrose oil, Efalex provides a perfectly balanced combination of omega-3 and omega-6 LCPs. An adequate intake of these fatty acids will help maintain all aspects of brain and visual function, notably learning ability, concentration as well as co-ordination.
Efalex contains fish oil carefully selected for its quality, purity and high DHA content, as well as Efamol evening primrose oil.
DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain, and is an essential constituent of nerve cells. Cells in the retina of the eye also contain a very high level of DHA, vital for maintaining eye function.
Numerous research studies have demonstrated that a combination of the fatty acids DHA and AA is important in helping to maintain brain and eye function.
• The specific long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids DHA and AA, building blocks of the brain, nervous system and eye.
• EPA and GLA fatty acids involved in the production of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances which are involved the transmission of messages between nerves
Scientifically developed for:
• Children and adults in a learning environment
• Children and adults with a low dietary intake of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids
Fatty acid deficiency has been found in some individuals with Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. These deficiencies could be a result of difficulty with the metabolic conversion process. The fatty acids present in Efalex bypass this first step since they are already in a form the body can use and metabolize further.
