Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is obtained from the seed of the Evening Primrose plant. This healthy oil has been used for many years for various medicinal purpose. Evening Primrose Oil has been used in various studies since it contains a natural source of essential fatty acids called Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid that could play a crucial role in the growth and overall health of the brain, heart, hair, skin, bones, nervous system, joints, inflammatory response, lungs and overall cellular health.*
Essential fatty acid supplements like Evening Primrose Oil can be a good source of plant based essential fatty acids and can help offset the damage caused by high consumption of unhealthy saturated and trans fats which is all too common in our food supply.*
Borage Oil is obtained from the leaves and flowers of the borage plant. This borage oil found in EFA Complex also contains Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) just like Evening Primrose Oil, so many of the health benefits are similar due to its GLA content. Borage Oil may also provide health benefits since the flower of this plant is known to contain antioxidant properties.*
Organic Flaxseed Oil is made from the seed of the plant and contains both Omega-6 fatty acids (like evening primrose and borage oil), as well as omega-3 fatty acids. So in addition to the health benefits of GLA, flaxseed oil also contains the essential fatty acid called "Alpha-Linolenic Acid" or simply ALA. Alpha-Linolenic Acid is a natural omega-3 fatty acid that is similar to those found in fish oil. In various studies, omega-3 fatty acids have been used in research with disorders such as cardiovascular disease, blood clotting, brain issues, inflammatory conditions, joint pain, cancer and auto-immune conditions.*
Marine Lipid Concentrate contains fatty acids from various fish such as sardine, anchovy, mackerel, sprat, salmon, and clupea fish. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish contain a healthy ratio of EPA and DHA. Omega-3's from fish oil have been used in countless studies in areas relating to healthy levels of cholesterol, as well as a supportive qualities for the heart, brain, joints, skin and individual cells.*
