Essential Fatty Acids

image of foods with fatty acids.

One component of nutrition that deserves significant attention is essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs cannot be produced by the body and therefore must come from the food we eat. They are the main structural components of our cell membranes, and keep our cell walls healthy by allowing nutrients to flow in and toxins to flow out. The three main essential fatty acids are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9. Most people consume enough Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids in the form of vegetable oils. However, we are often deficit in Omega fatty acids that come from foods such as flax seed, fish and borage oil. Omega 3 fatty acids are known to help with cardiovascular, joint and skin health, and to improve mood. Supplementing daily with an EFA capsule or liquid oil is essential to properly nourish your body.

Testimonial

  • "I was referred to Dr. Coogan from a friend of mine, Laura, and patient of Dr. Coogan. I am currently recovering from breast cancer. The chemotherapy, surgery and hormonal therapy have had a big impact on my body. Chiropractic has helped me loosen tight connective tissue, increased function in my joints and reduced pain and inflammation in several parts of my body. Doc and the whole team at Old Mill Chiropractic are always so friendly and helpful. Thank You!!"
