Product Overview

"Degenerative diseases that involve fats, prematurely kill over two-thirds of the people currently living in affluent, industrialized nations. Sixty-eight percent of people die from just three conditions that involve fatty degeneration: cardiovascular disease (43.8%), cancer (22.4 %) and diabetes (1.8%). These deaths are the result of eating habits based on ignorance and misconceptions," states Udo Erasmus, author of Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill.

The New England Journal of Medicine and The Journal of The American Medical Association have proven that essential fatty acids (EFAs) play an important role in the healthy functioning of your cardiovascular system.

Deaths in Industrialized Nations

Good sources of fat contain unsaturated fatty acids. The key components of good fats are the essential fatty acids. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are unsaturated oils that are considered essential because the human body must have them, but cannot manufacture them on its own. Therefore, the body must rely on the foods we eat as its source for good fats. Omega-3 fatty acids include Linoleic Acid (LA), and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) while Omega-6 fatty acids include Alpha Linolenic Acid (LNA) and Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). Omega-6 fatty acids are more common in the American diet than the Omega-3 fatty acids. This imbalance is due to several factors, such as, the increased consumption of oils void of Omega-3 fatty acids, the industrial milling of flour, the increased consumption of sugar and fried foods and the decreased consumption of fish.
Essential fatty acids are involved in energy production, hormone production, oxygen transfer, hemoglobin production, cell membrane components, recovery from fatigue, prostaglandin production, growth, cell division, production of smooth skin, reduction of inflammation, reduction of platelet stickiness, reduction of blood pressure and brain development.

Optimal E.F.A.___________________________________________________________________

Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are very sensitive; light, heat and oxygen can destroy them. Light and heat can be avoided by keeping them in dark bottles in the refrigerator. The main problem with most EFA products on the market today is the inability of keeping them fresh because of their exposure to oxygen. Oxygen easily permeates traditional capsules and, EFAs as liquids in bottles, are exposed to oxygen every time the lid comes off.

OHS has teamed with one of the leading capsule manufacturers to encapsulate a complete blend of EFAs in a capsule utilizing a patented sealing process which virtually eliminates the end products exposure to oxygen. Traditionally DHA oil is an oil obtained from fish. Unfortunately there is no body of water that is free from the ravages of pollution. Fish contain high levels of toxic materials. Our DHA oil is derived from micro-algae grown in controlled vats thereby, yielding contaminate free DHA, and it's vegan safe.

Optimal E.F.A. is a unique blend of stabilized oils from plant sources only, making this a choice essential fatty acid source for vegetarians and for those who want to avoid any level of PCBs and other toxins that are found in supplements made from fish oils.

Optimal E.F.A. contains both omega-3 (45%) and Omega-6 (55%) essential fatty acids. One capsule contains:

* 100 mg of Alpha-linolenic Acid (ALA) - an Omega-3 fatty acid
* 150 mg of Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) - an Omega-3 fatty acid
* 300 mg of Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA) - a healthy Omega-6 fatty acid

This stabilized fatty acid blend breaks down into the following:
* Alpha-linolenic Acid (ALA) - Flaxseed oil, the richest source of LNA
* Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) - Algae, the only vegetable based DHA source
* Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA) - Borage oil, the richest source of GLA
