Essential Fatty Acids

image of foods with fatty acids.

One component of nutrition that deserves significant attention is essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs cannot be produced by the body and therefore must come from the food we eat. They are the main structural components of our cell membranes, and keep our cell walls healthy by allowing nutrients to flow in and toxins to flow out. The three main essential fatty acids are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9. Most people consume enough Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids in the form of vegetable oils. However, we are often deficit in Omega fatty acids that come from foods such as flax seed, fish and borage oil. Omega 3 fatty acids are known to help with cardiovascular, joint and skin health, and to improve mood. Supplementing daily with an EFA capsule or liquid oil is essential to properly nourish your body.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I now understand what causes my pain. My doctor taught me how to help myself by adding stretching and exercise to my adjustments. This has decreased my pain dramatically"

  • "I could not tolerate pain medications, they were upsetting my stomach. Since working with Dr. Hovig, I no longer need pain medication and my activity level has increased greatly. I thank you all for the care you've given me."
