Multi EFA Capsules is indicated for cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension, and arterial plaque buildup; for liver disorders such as hepatitis and fatty degeneration; for skin health such as dry skin and acne; for schizophrenia, manic depression, multiple sclerosis, Tourette’s syndrome, cerebral palsy and hyperactivity; and for premenstrual symptoms such as obesity, weight gain, bloating, irritability and nervousness.
Multi EFA Capsules provides a highly-concentrated combination of essential fatty acids formulated to assist, enhance and maintain cardiovascular, endocrine and immune system functions. The body’s natural ability to convert linoleic acid into gamma-linoleic acid is impaired by diets high in meat, eggs, dairy and saturated fats. Studies show that when combining the cold water fish, flax seed and borage oils, the benefits are much greater than when taken individually.
EFAs are broken down in the gut (hydrolyzed) and the individual fatty acids are absorbed by the enterocytes lining the GI tract. The enterocytes assemble the fatty acids and glycerol into triglycerides.The triglycerides and other fat soluble nutrients are collected and assembled into chylomicrons, which are absorbed by the lacteals (lymphatic vessels of the small intestines). The chylomicrons flow with the lymph into the blood and reaches every tissue in the body. In the tissues the triglycerides are absorbed in a similar way as triglycerides are absorbed by the enterocytes. In the tissues the fatty acids can be metabolized into for example local hormones.
The hydrolization process in the gut requires lipase secreted by the pancreas and bile synthesized in the liver and secreted from the gallbladder.
