Alchemy of Essential Fatty Acids Online Masterclass
Why is this important?
Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) are the “Good Oils” that are essential to life. After all, the brain, joints, heart and muscles do not function with the lubrication and anti-inflammatory nature of EFA’s. The term “essential fatty acid” refers to fatty acids required for biological processes but does not include the fats that only act as fuel.
EFA’s are critical for cell membrane structure and function as well as brain function and hormonal signalling. EFA’s are transformed into eicosanoid mediators which regulate initiation, propagation and termination of inflammation, immune repair and protection, and neural membranes and receptors that ensure proper intracellular communication within the brain and nervous system.
Understanding the balance of Omega 3,6, and 9’s can give clues to the degree of inflammation In the body. Supporting the balance of the ratio of Omega 3,6 and 9’s can alleviate many inflammatory conditions.
The therapeutic value in the body’s physiological processes with EFA’s can be influenced by
⦁ nutritional intervention
⦁ assess dietary intake
⦁ metabolism of EFA’s
⦁ cellular membrane function
⦁ brain regulation
