Essential Fatty Acids

Essential fats as the name implies are essential for your health. They are a vital component of every human cell and the body needs them to balance hormones, insulate nerve cells, keep the skin and arteries supple and to keep the body warm. When we do not get enough of them, we can experience deficiency symptoms which include: dry skin, cracked skin on heels or fingertips, hair falling out, lifeless hair, poor wound healing, dandruff, depression, irritability, soft or brittle nails, allergies, dry eyes, painful joints, fatigue, high blood pressure, arthritis, PMS and painful breasts. There are two families of essential fats Omega 3 and Omega 6. Years ago we all used to get a good balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils from our food but now a typical Western diet contains nearly 10 times more Omega 6 than Omega 3 which is not a healthy balance.
