The EFA Ultra supplements are a powerful group of essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9 derived from evening primrose and seabuckthorn seed oil and provide more than 190 nutrients and bioactive substances. They now also contain pure organic coconut oil and mekabu seaweed extract. The health benefits of the EFA Ultra go beyond a normal essential fatty acid supplement.
The health of our skin is determined by the matrix. Our matrix is the jellylike substance made up of glycoaminoglycans (GAGs) that surrounds our cells. EFAs are a major component of the lipid barrier that prevents excessive moisture loss in skin. Linolenic acids promote the repair of tissue damage, especially after aggressive skin revision treatments or cosmetic surgery. They are essential in the production of critical metabolites (intermediates of metabolism).
Sitosterol, for example, improves microcirculation in the skin, while phosphatides form a protective film to prevent moisture loss and keep free radicals at bay. EFAs are required for the structure of all membranes in the body. They waterproof the skin, maintain the impermeable barrier of the skin, and act as precursors for the production of prostaglandins, which regulate all cell functions. Prostaglandins help regulate hormones. These fatty acids must be obtained from the diet. They come from an outside source and are not manufactured by our body. EFA deficiency will prevent the complete formation of the bi-layers that are responsible for corneocyte adhesion and prevent transepidermal water loss. If the skin can’t retain proper amounts of water it will not excrete waste properly and therefore stagnate and become clogged.
Individual supplements are rarely sufficient. Patients with acne, for example, tend to have higher levels of squalene and wax esters, and show lower levels of essential fatty acids. This causes sebaceous fluid to be thicker and stickier, therefore clogging the pores and ducts. Aiming to boost the skin and body’s immune responses, EFA Ultra works to promote damaged tissue. It helps to maintain the turgidity and bounce of skin by strengthening and maintaining the glycoaminoglycans (material that makes up the matrix) and increasing free water levels. EFA Ultra is designed to work quickly and to offer results within just three weeks.
