Eight pure plant and seed oils provide essential omega-3 fatty acids (EFA).

In this interview Ross Pelton will discuss the nutritional importance of omega-3 fatty acids. He will also focus on 8 plant-based omega-3 rich plant oils found in Dr. Ohhira’s Essential Living Oils by Essential Formulas.

“Humans literally must have Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) in order to live. That’s why they’re called “essential.” Since our bodies cannot manufacture EFAs, we need to acquire them from food or supplements.*

Because they support nutrient absorption and membrane integrity of all the body’s cells, EFAs influence the health and wellness of all major body systems and organs. Whole health benefits are achieved only by ingesting a balanced ratio of polyunsaturated, unsaturated, and monounsaturated EFAs—namely Omegas-3, 6 and 9 in a ratio of 4:1:1.*

This balance is not always represented in common retail supplements. And the typical American diet tends to contain a very imbalanced ratio, with Omega-6 intake ranging from 15 to 25 times the intake of Omega-3. Through strategic supplementation, it is possible to maintain an appropriate 4:1:1 ratio, which in turn, promotes whole health.*

Fish oil and fatty fish are good sources of Omega-3, but many people are looking for alternative sources of EFAs, due to taste preference or vegan lifestyles. Dr. Ohhira’s Essential Living Oils™ provides that vegan alternative. Eight natural plant and seed oils are cold-pressed, extracted and prepared to provide a pure, undamaged form of plant-based “good fats” for optimum health.*

These “good fats” do hundreds of crucial jobs, from promoting normal hormonal balance to supporting cardiovascular health. They also support cellular membrane integrity, which affects EVERY organ and tissue in the human body. They’re truly essential to a whole health regimen.*

The body requires EFAs to help:

  • Maintain healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range*
  • Promote heart health and arterial integrity*
  • Maintain healthy mood, focus, mental clarity, and cognitive function*
  • Support the body’s normal, balanced inflammation response*
  • Support a balanced immune response*
  • Maintain bone and joint health*
  • Maintain healthy permeability of the intestinal lining*
  • Support dermal health*

Essential Living Oils EFAs are derived from select Vegan oils and seeds.

  • Rice Bran
  • Sunflower
  • Borage Seed
  • Avocado
  • Perilla Seed
  • Flax Seed
  • Olive
  • Tea Seed

The oils are cold-pressed and stable at room temperature. These 8 Plant Oils Also Provide: Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D, E, and K calcium, phosphorus, iron, and potassium. That means additional support for the immune system, healthy energy, and joint health!”* Select content provided by Essential Formulas

374 – The Great Cholesterol Myth with Dr. Stephen Sinatra

This is the dirty little secret that the pharmaceutical statin manufacturers don’t want you to know. If you do not have heart disease, statin drugs are of no benefit, and they come with a huge risk of side effects. It has been said that statin drugs can actually increase your risk because of their adverse effects on CoQ10 levels. Remember that statin drugs exert their effect on cholesterol by interfering with liver function. This is not a good thing. Statin drugs have only been proven to be beneficial in men who have had previous heart attacks. I know that may be hard to believe but that’s what the studies reveal.
