The clever investment in you and your child’s health
Essential fatty acids, like vitamins, cannot be made by the body and so must be included in the diet. The body converts essential fatty acids into long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs), which form part of the membrane around and within every cell in the body and play an important role in eye and brain activity.
A large proportion of the human brain is composed of LCPs and the most abundant of these are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (AA). Each of these LCPs play a vital role in eye and brain function; DHA is required for nerve cell and eye membranes, and AA is required for transmission of messages along nerves and for the development of memory. Dietary inclusion of the nutrients DHA and AA is important to help maintain brain and eye function and may help in the development of a child's concentration, and therefore their learning ability.
Efalex is a unique DHA-rich combination of fish oil and evening primrose oil providing the important nutrients DHA and GLA (Gamma-Linolenic Acid), which play a vital role in eye and brain function, both in the early years of our development and throughout our adult lives. Learning ability in humans begins to show itself early on in childhood. Some parents discover that although their children are intelligent and creative, they can find everyday tasks daunting and some may even demonstrate unruly or disruptive behaviour.
The unique Efalex formulation contains the three important fatty acids DHA, AA and GLA as well as the antioxidant vitamin E, which has been shown to help protect fatty acids. Efalex can be taken by all children and adults to help ensure that your diet consists of sufficient levels of the important fatty acids and was formulated for people in a learning environment.
