Description

The omega-3 fatty acids alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and EPA/DHA, derived from flax seed oil and cold water fish oil, respectively, are combined with omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), derived from borage seed oil, to provide enhanced essential fatty acid support. EPA/DHA from fish oil has been shown to support cardiovascular, joint, emotional and skin health. ALA from flax seed oil may be specifically supportive of healthy lipid metabolism and vascular function. GLA is an important precursor of prostaglandin E1, a compound that supports blood flow and vascular health. GLA also promotes healthy immune mediator activity in tissues and maintains healthy arachidonic acid metabolism, actions that provide potential support for joint comfort and skin health.

Uses For Tri-EFA


Cardiovascular Support: EPA and DHA from fish oil
encourage cardiovascular health by supporting
triglyceride and lipid metabolism, maintaining healthy
blood flow and promoting healthy platelet function. A
randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study
involving 223 individuals, indicated that fish oil
supplementation promotes arterial function. In addition,
studies indicate these oils help maintain blood vessel
integrity. One study also suggests EPA may moderate
protein kinase C, supporting arterial smooth muscle cells.
ALA from flax seed oil may be specifically supportive of
healthy lipid metabolism and vascular function. GLA is
an important precursor of prostaglandin E1, a compound
that supports blood flow and vascular health.*


Joint Comfort: Fish oil is also important for optimal joint
function. It moderates prostaglandin and leukotriene
production, supporting healthy connective tissue. It also
plays a role in moderating neutrophil activity, supporting
joint comfort. A double blind, placebo-controlled,
prospective study involving 66 subjects revealed
that fish oil modulates immune mediator activity as
well as provides support for joint flexibility. GLA also
promotes healthy immune mediator activity in tissues and
maintains healthy arachidonic acid metabolism, actions
that provide potential support for joint comfort.*


Skin Health: Essential fatty acids promote vascular health,
supporting oxygen and nutrient delivery to the skin.
Studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids protect
keratinocytes and fibroblasts from free radicals and
immune mediators generated by sun exposure, helping
to soothe the skin. GLA also promotes skin comfort by
supporting healthy immune mediator activity and
arachidonic acid metabolism. Additionally, essential fatty
acids help promote elasticity and hydration for smoother
looking skin.*
