Info: Available in Softgel Capsules or as Two Types of Liquid
There are a number of different types of EFAs, which play various roles in our bodies (some primarily benefit the cardiovascular system; some the brain and nervous system; and some the integumentary system [skin, hair, nails, and exocrine/ secretion glands]), and they're not all abundant in the same food sources, leading some to seek out several different types of EFA supplements, and having to work out the right dosage of each one to take each day. Genestra has made that easier by doing the sourcing, blending and concentrating for you; you can choose here between two types of softgel Capsules or a Liquid version.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are molecules made of long chains of lipid-carboxylic acid which are not only found in certain animal or plant-based fats and oils, but which also make up parts of the cell membranes throughout our bodies, and which we can't produce ourselves - we have to take them in either through diet or with supplements.
Multi-EFA Capsules: This Essential Fatty Acids Formula with Phospholipids provides EFAs from several different sources (fish, flax, and borage oil) in the convenience of a single type of capsule to help maintain the healthy functioning of your heart and circulatory system, vision, cognition, and memory, and help keep up your hair and skin, all at the same time.
The Super EFA Liquids provide more concentrated doses of fish oil alone, which helps maintain cardiovascular health and reduce serum triglycerides in adults; helps support cognitive health and brain function in everyone; and helps support the development of the brain, eyes and nerves in children up to 12 years of age.
Note, there is also a much larger (500 ml) size of the Super EFA Liquid which is often available in stock in our Winnipeg store, and which may be available by special order. Please contact us for details.
