Pure Encapsulations EFA Essentials
offers support for the immune system and blood circulation. EFA Essentials by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. One serving contains over 1000 milligrams of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and nearly 900 milligrams of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) from fish oil. EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids that could help promote cognitive function and cardiovascular health. GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) is an omega-6 fatty acid that may work to potentially alleviate symptoms associated with dry skin; this is because it may encourage the delivery of nutrients and peripheral blood flow. Each four-capsule serving of EFA Essentials softgels provides 100 milligrams of GLA from cold-pressed borage oil. EPA DHA and GLA may cooperate to promote the balanced production of eicosanoids such as prostaglandins which are signaling molecules that can work with a variety of cells such as those in the joints. EFA Essentials may help address symptoms like mild pain and stiffness. Finally this essential fatty acid supplement could assist in maintaining healthy vision. Its ingredients might work to encourage tear production tear film and moisture retention in the eyes. Recommended use:
2 capsules, 1-2 times daily with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.

EFA Essentials is a blend of fish oil and borage oil in one dietary supplement to provide essential fatty acids. EFA Essentials may support joint health, skin elasticity and moisture as well as optical functionality.
What Is It? EFA Essentials combines an ultra-pure, molecularly distilled triglyceride fish oil with cold-pressed borage oil for comprehensive essential fatty acid support. EPA, DHA and GLA support joint, skin and eye health through a broad range of mechanisms involving cytokine balance, protease activity, immune mediator activity and blood flow.
**Uses For EFA Essentials Joint Health:
While omega-3 fatty acids are utilized for the biosynthesis of prostaglandin E3, the omega-6 fatty acid, GLA, is an important precursor of prostaglandin E1. Together, EPA, DHA and GLA help to balance eicosanoid production in diverse cell types, including chondrocytes in joints. Furthermore, these fatty acids support joint health by maintaining healthy cytokine activity and matrix protease expression. Skin Health:
The importance of GLA has been underscored by clinical studies with favorable dermatologic outcomes. Research indicates that EPA, DHA and GLA help to balance eicosanoid production in the keratinocytes of the skin. GLA also supports skin elasticity and hydration through promoting peripheral blood flow and nutrient delivery. Ocular Health:
EPA, DHA and GLA help to balance eicosanoid production in the epithelial cells of the eye. Additionally, clinical research has indicated important roles for fish oil and GLA-rich oils in maintaining healthy moisture retention in the epithelia of the eyes. Large studies have indicated that EPA and DHA support ocular hydration through promoting healthy tear production and tear film osmolarity in normal functioning eyes. GLA provides additional support for ocular health by maintaining inflammatory balance, mucin production and healthy tear film characteristics.
