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 initially came in for my low back pain. The doctor did adjustments on my low back, recommended Acute Phase and Myocalm as herbal muscle relaxers and in 4-5 treatments I had absolutely no back pain. I would like to thank everyone at the Foley Wellness Center for treating my lower back problem and getting me back on my feet and feeling 100%. Thanks!"

  • "I had been to other chiropractors and had very little if any results with my neck and low back pain. Now I have much more range of motion in my neck and much less pain in my neck and low back. I am able to do a lot more things without being in pain. I also think that the omega-3 oils that they recommended I start taking helped not only my neck and back, but my whole body feel better. Thank you for making me feel better."
