WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS (EFAs), &WHY DO WE NEED TO TAKE OMEGA-3 EFAs? Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are polyunsaturated fats that our bodies need but cannot produce. Therefore, they must be consumed through food or supplements. There are two families of EFAs: omega-3 and omega-6, which need to be consumed in a balanced ratio. The body must receive a balanced supply of omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs to ensure proper eicosanoids production. Eicosanoids are hormone-like compounds that affect virtually every system in the body—they regulate pain and inflammation, help maintain proper blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and promote fluid nerve transmission. The problem is that, in our modern industrialized food system, omega-3s have become largely absent from the food chain while omega-6s have become overabundant. Even the healthiest diets contain too many omega-6s and not enough omega-3s. Decades of scientific evidence indicates that this EFA imbalance can contribute to chronic inflammation and a variety of chronic health issues. The most beneficial omega-3s that we’re missing are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Purified fish oil is the best direct source of EPA and DHA. 2. WHAT ARE THE EARLY SIGNS OF OMEGA-3 DEFICIENCY? Fatigue

Ultra Botanicals Ginkgo Biloba Extract (Ginkgo biloba) What is Ginkgo Biloba? Ginkgo biloba has been used medicinally for thousands of years.Ginkgo is one of the oldest living tree species. A single tree can live as long as 1,000 years and grow to a height of 120 feet. Its leaves are among the most extensively studied botanicals in use today. In the United States and Europe, ginkgo supplements are among the best-selling herbal medications. Ginkgo consistently ranks as a top medicine prescribed in France and Germany. Ginkgo has been used in traditional medicine for circulatory disorders and as a memory enhancer.Although Chinese herbal medicine has used both the ginkgo leaf and seed for thousands of years, modern research has focused on the standardized Ginkgo biloba extract (GBE), which is prepared from the dried green leaves. This standardized extract is highly concentrated and seems to be clinically more effective in treating health problems (particularly circulatory ailments) than the non-standardized leaf alone. More than 40 components isolated from the ginkgo tree have been identified, but only two are believed to be responsible for the herb's medicinal effects: flavonoids and terpenoids. Flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that flavonoids protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels, and retina from damage. Terpenoids (such as ginkgolides) may improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of platelets. Antioxidants are substances that scavenge free radicals -- compounds in the body that damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Free radicals occur naturally in the body and grow in number as we age. But environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoking, and air pollution) can also increase the number of free radicals. Free radicals are believed to contribute to health problems including heart disease and cancer as well as cognitive disorders and other forms of dementia. Antioxidants such as those found in ginkgo may help neutralize free radicals. Clinical studies suggest that ginkgo may provide the following benefits: • Improvement in thinking, learning, and memory (cognitive function) • Improvement in activities of daily living • Improvement in social behavior • Fewer feelings of depression Intermittent Claudication: Because ginkgo improves blood flow, it has been studied in people with intermittent claudication (pain caused by reduced blood flow to the legs). People with intermittent claudication have a hard time walking without feeling extreme pain. Memory Enhancement: Ginkgo is widely touted as a "brain herb." It has been studied to see whether it can improve memory in people with dementia, and some studies found it did help. It's less clear whether ginkgo helps improve memory in healthy people who experience normal memory loss that
