Kirkman's EFA Powder is a multifunctional nutritional food that has excellent rationale in supporting good health. It supplies omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, along with much needed protein and fiber, in a pleasant tasting, easy to use (see next section) form that makes it easy for parents to supplement these important nutrients to the whole family.
EFA stands for “essential fatty acids.” The word "essential" as used in describing omega-3 and omega-6 compounds means that the body cannot produce them on its own, so they must be consumed in our diet. Essential fatty acids are either omega-3 oils or omega-6 oils. Some sources of omega-3 are: cod liver oil, fish oils, flax oil, flaxseed and leafy green vegetables. Some nuts also contain omega-3s (e.g. walnuts). Omega-6 sources are: corn oil, wheat germ oil, soy oil, borage oil, evening primrose oil, black current oil plus many other cooking oils.
