Pure Form of EFA - fats in Dr. Ohhira's Essential Living Oils are extracted from eight plant seeds, scientifically selected by award-winning microbiologist Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D. to support good health*. The expensive and time consuming cold-press method of extracting oils is used to preserve the natural qualities and properties of the plant seeds so the consumer receives only the purest form of good oil.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) are the "good" fats our body requires but can't manufacture. The only way to acquire EFA is to consume them in foods and oral supplements.
Dr. Ohhira's Essential Living Oils is a vegan source of EFA (Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9) found in linolenic, linoleic and oleic acids. The scientifically balanced ratio of Omega-3,-6 and -9 is 4:1:1. (although the ideal ratio in the body of Omega 3 and 6 is 1:1, the body receives substantial Omega 6 from foods. Hence, an EFA product with a 1:1 ratio of Omega 3 and 6 could lead to excessive Omega 6 accumulation.) Dr. Ohhira's Essential Living Oils is a high plant-based source of GLA, ALA, EPA, DHA and Vitamin E. Other significant compounds include campesterol, sitosterol and stigmasterol.
Meticulously formulated by research scientists to provide a single product that contains all of the good fats without any of the bad fats.
