Essential Fatty Acids

Many individuals consume far too many of their calories as fats. However, “essential fatty acids” are essential to optimal health. This group includes two fatty acids, namely linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, which appear to have vitamin-like activity: they are essential for metabolism and cannot be produced in the body from simpler molecules. In addition, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is a fatty acid intermediate which may help some individuals bypass a “weak link” in fatty acid metabolism (delta-6-desaturase), so it can be classified as “semi-essential.”* * These statements have not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug administration.
