Nutrition Intelligence – What’s Essential, What’s Fatty & Acid? – EFA – Part 10

What the heck are EFAs? I thought fats were bad, and acids were downright dangerous! Well, they’re called essential because they are vital to the healthy function of every cell. Chances are that you have been unknowingly eliminating these from your diet.

If you are like most people you’ve probably spent the last decade cutting down on fat. Sure, studies linked a high-fat diet to an increased risk of heart disease and cancer. However, in our attempts to eat the right foods we have reduced our consumption of the good fats, namely EFAs which are cruicial to good health.


EfAs are the main structural parts of every cell membrane in the body and is necessary for both healthy cell function and for the regulators that control your body’s well-being. They are needed to regulate the proper fluidity and flexibility of cell walls, which keeps beneficial substances within our cells and harmful substances out. There are 2 major series of EFAs – Omega-3 and Omega-6.

Your body uses EFAs to produce prostaglandin that is so vital to sustain life. Prostaglandin works like a localized tissue hormone-like system and works hand-in-hand with hormones to carry out regulatory activities. Prostaglandin imbalances can lead to the loss of your body’s ability to protect itself. For instance, certain prostaglandins control the secretion of a protective stomach coating, preventing your digestive acids from acting on the walls of your stomach.

EFAs and prostaglandins are crucial to proper functioning of the immune system. Anything hampering this regulatory system results in a weakened immune system, setting the stage for immune related disorders.
