Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are an integral part of a healthy diet.They help with proper development and functioning of your brain and nervous system.* They help support cardiovascular health.* They even have a hand in the development and maintenance of healthier hair and nails. EFAs are heavy hitters.* While the body can synthesize some of the good stuff it needs to properly function, EFAs are the foundational fats your body needs but just can’t make on its own.
