What are essential fatty acids?
Our bodies are made of cells. Since our cells die and are replaced by new cells, Essential Fatty Acids, or EFA’s, are one of the many building blocks needed to build cells. Essential fatty acids are found in the cell membrane of every cell in your body and are considered necessary for biological processes.
For basic instructions on taking our Body Lab Nutritional Oil Blends, check out our “Instructions for Nutritional Oils” page, here.
What are the benefits of including essential fatty acids in your diet? Why do we need them?
Essential fatty acids are required to build, maintain and repair healthy cells in our entire body. There are many different kinds of fatty acids. Your body is able to make some of them but two are essential can only be obtain from your diet. Fatty acids are the raw material for the body to build hormones and are found in every single cell in your body.
Increasing your intake of the fatty acids found in Liquid Gold can improve the elasticity of the cell membrane allowing it to be more pliable, healthier, better hydrated, thus function at an optimal level. The healthier the cell membrane the easier it is for the other vital nutrients to pass in and out of the cell itself. Essential fatty acids are required in our diet for our health or our bodies cannot grow or repair themselves when damaged.
How do essential fatty acids impact metabolism?
When your body uses essential fatty acid oil as fuel, it supplies a steady flow of energy, keeping your blood sugar levels stable, unlike carbohydrates which produces spikes of energy that quickly raise and lower your blood sugar. It also runs more efficiently, effectively increasing your energy, and the rate of your metabolism.
How do I use the oils?
Our two most popular oils are Liquid Gold and Boost. Both are designed to increase your metabolism but they have different applications and work slightly differently. Liquid Gold is the main source of your daily omega fatty acids intake on regular or "shake" days. A Body Lab coach is trained to determine the optimal dosage your body requires for peak performance but you may begin by following the basic instructions provided. Boost is designed for Cleanse Days and requires a Body Lab coach to personalize the program to fit your needs and maximize your results.
