Essential Balance® is a specially formulated blend of organic oils that provides a balance of polyunsaturated fats in the one to one ratio of omega-3 to omega-6, with the added benefit of lignans. This is a great formula for everyday use for both men and women.
Essential Balance® EFA blend oil is great for daily use because our bodies depend on EFAs for normal functioning cells. EFAs act as building blocks in cell membranes and produce hormone-like substances necessary for energy metabolism and cardiovascular and immune health.
Essential Balance® of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids For thousands of years, the human diet was made up of a natural selection of foods providing a 1:1 balance of omega-3 to omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs). Offering the same EFA ratio found in the human brain, Essential Balance® is a great tasting nutritious blend of organic oils that meets the everyday needs of both women and men.
Make Essential Balance® a regular part of your routine. The average diet in North America is widely considered to be out of balance, acutely deficient in omega-3 EFA while disproportionately abundant in consumption of omega-6 EFAs. Research has shown that deteriorating health may result from a long-term imbalance or a dietary deficiency of either EFA.
Research shows that Essential Fatty Acids benefit
Skin, hair, and nail health
