Omegas & Essential Fatty Acids
Introduction To Omega 3-6-9 Essential Fatty Acids
Don't Fall Short On Omegas
Essential fatty acids (EFA's) are not produced by the body and must therefore be consumed from an outside source, such as foods or supplements. Omega 3 and 6 are the most common EFA's, with Omega 9 being an important but non-essential fatty acid. However, they all can support your overall health, immunity, and fitness!* Unfortunately, most of us fall short in our essential fatty acid intake daily, so turning to supplemental help is definitely a great option to consider.
The Fighting Factor
- Omega 3's (essential) - source of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) for cardiovascular and brain health support*
- Omega 6's (essential) - source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) to promote cardiovascular, nervous system,and skin health *
- Omega 9's (non-essential) - source of Oleic Acid and Erucic Acid for healthy vascular function*
Keep an eye out, because you can find these ingredients in fish, lamb, walnuts, flaxseed, rapeseed, mustard seed, and wallflower seed!

No More Mediocre Results
Ingredients such as Caprylic acid and Capric Fatty Acid are also derived from MCT for cosmetics and food flavoring. Check out low-calorie, fast-absorbing MCTs to support your fitness goal!
Flaxseed For Optimal Function*
In addition to this, flaxseed is rich in vitamins and minerals such as zinc, iron, vitamin E, carotene, B-vitamins, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, and manganese. To top things off, flaxseed is also a good source of protein, having 25-30 grams of protein for every 100 grams flaxseed.
The Skinny On Healthy Fats
You can also try some of the flaxseed-based EFA's as an alternative to fish oil. Remember, EFA products do contain calories, and those calories count towards your total calorie intake for the day.
Use those fatty acids, account for the calories, and keep moving towards your goal!
