Essential fatty acids are called ‘essential’ because they are essential to life. Like water, you need EFAs daily in order to survive. The body cannot produce these oils on its own, so they must be ingested from food sources. The main foods that provide EFAs are raw nuts and seeds, and cold water fish. As the average Canadian diet usually contains insufficient amounts of the foods listed above, it is vital to ensure adequate intake through supplementation. OilSMART contains these valuable fatty acids.
OilSMART also contains the digestive enzyme, Lipase. Lipase is required by the body to break down fats and oils for maximum utilization within the body. OilSMART can be used daily as an Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) supplement. It is also an important support product for combatting constipation as it helps to lubricate the colon. Further, supplementing with EFA’s daily has been shown to promote healing on the intestinal tract and reduces inflammation.
