Viridian Essential Fatty Acids
Essential fatty acids, or EFAs, are fatty acids that we as humans must ingest because the body requires them for good health but cannot synthesize them.
The term “essential fatty acid” refers to fatty acids required for biological processes, and not those that only act as fuel. EFAs support the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. The human body needs EFAs to manufacture and repair cell membranes, enabling the cells to obtain optimum nutrition and expel harmful waste products.
A primary function of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) is the production of prostaglandins, which regulate body functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility, conception, and play a role in immune function by regulating inflammation and encouraging the body to fight infection.
Essential Fatty Acids are also needed for proper growth in children, particularly for neural development and maturation of sensory systems, with male children having higher needs than females. The fetus and breast fed infants also require an adequate supply of EFAs through the mother’s dietary intake.
