ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS are called essential as they are a type of fat that your body needs but which it cannot manufacture. Our bodies require special fats that make it possible, among other important functions, for sufficient oxygen to reach the cells. These special fats are highly oxygen-absorbing and are called EFAs.
Since the term “Essential Fatty Acids” was being misused so frequently, Professor Brian S. Peskin, BSEE-MIT, was compelled to coin a new phrase, Parent Essential Oils (PEOs). This refers to the only two true essential fatty acids: parent omega-6 (LA) and parent omega-3 (ALA). The term “parent” is used because these are the whole, unadulterated form of the fats your body demands.
Your body can’t manufacture PEOs. They must be consumed daily.
But I Thought Fish Oils Were The Answer?
Fish oils are made up almost exclusively of omega-3 derivatives, overdoses of which can be harmful. Fish oil supplements can also contain pollutants. Chemicals and heat are used to extract the oils from fish tissue, which can contaminate them. Top-quality fish usually goes to markets and restaurants with the rest being processed into fish oil supplements and other secondary products.
So? What’s The Problem?
There are a host of omega-6 and omega-3 oils being sold as Essential Fatty Acids, that actually aren’t essential at all as your body can make them as needed. These are known as derivatives and are often advertised as EPAs, DHAs and GLAs.
How Are YES Oils Produced?
Unlike most commercial oil supplements, YES Ultimate EFAs are produced in small, carefully monitored quantities. The oils have no pesticides. The seeds are crushed, using cold pressing methods. After the oils are blended, they go to a pharmaceutical grade encapsulator, where a hard gel-cap is used, as it’s more impervious to the transmission of oxygen.
Flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components which include Omega-3 essential fatty acids, that have been shown to have healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
Evening Primrose Oil
Evening primrose is a plant that’s native to Europe and North America. It has a long history of medicinal use. It contains an omega-6 essential fatty acid that is necessary for good health.
High Linoleic Sunflower Oil
High Linoleum Sunflower Oil has higher omega-6 content, which is essential to the body and doesn’t contain any saturated fats.
Pumpkin oil is one of the best sources of plant-based omega-3s (alpha-linolenic acid or ALA). With a wide variety of nutrients ranging from magnesium and manganese to copper, protein and zinc, pumpkin seeds are nutritional powerhouses wrapped up in a very small package.
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Almost 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil is the 12-carbon Lauric Acid. When coconut oil is enzymatically digested, it also forms a monoglyceride called monolaurin.
✅ YES Ultimate EFAs are the ideal way to replenish your body’s precious Parent Essential Oils. Your body cannot make Parent Essential Oils and they are “essential” to all of the cells in your body.
✅ The only way to get these oils is through your diet, and if you eat processed foods then many of the EFAs you are getting have already been irreparably altered by food processors.
✅ Parent Omega-6 = LA: Linoleic Acid (polyunsaturated) – sunflower, evening primrose. Your body will utilize mostly the parent form and make the derivatives as needed. Derivatives are: GLA, DGLA, AA.
✅ Parent Omega-3 = ALA: Alpha Linolenic Acid (super-unsaturated) – flax, hemp. Derivatives are: SDA, EPA, DHA. (Fish oil is naturally almost 100% derivative omega-3, therefore it is not the ideal form for long-term supplementation).
