Youngevity EFAs

Our bodies need Three Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) to live long, healthy lives. They are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9.

In particular, our muscles and organs, like the heart and lungs need them.

Our bodies can’t make…

We can’t make Omega 3 or Omega 6. so they are 100% essential. We can make some Omega 9, but not enough, so it’s essential too. Youngevity EFA products have all three.


Please follow the links to all of the Youngevity EFA products and considerably more information. We’d generalize it here, but some things are different.

Why Do You Need Essential Fatty Acids?

Essential fatty acids affect many aspects of health. Functions of essential fatty acids include improving immunity, cell signaling, mood and brain health, plus decreasing inflammation.

Some research shows that increasing your intake of essential fatty acids could enhance mental and physical performance, help treat some diseases, promote mental health, and improve body composition. (1)

An essential fatty acids deficiency can lead to symptoms like:

  • Dry skin
  • Dandruff
  • Scaly skin
  • Brittle fingernails
  • Dry mouth
  • Dull, patchy skin
  • Excessive thirst
  • Cracked fingertips or heels

In addition to preventing deficiency, getting enough essential fatty acids in your diet can also come with a whole host of benefits to your health.

Benefits of Essential Fatty Acids

1. Promote Heart Health

Essential fatty acids are well-known for their role in preventing heart disease by reducing risk factors and keeping your heart healthy and strong. In fact, a higher intake of essential fatty acids has been associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. (23)

Omega-3, in particular, has been shown to reduce triglycerides, blood pressure and the buildup of plaque in the arteries. (456)

Studies show that omega-6 fatty acids may also lower some heart disease risk factors, such as blood pressure, total cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol. (78)

2. Protect Your Brain

Some promising research has found a link between essential fatty acid intake and brain health, showing that it may help improve cognition and could even prevent certain neurological disorders.

Several studies have found that omega-3 fatty acid consumption is tied to a decreased risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. (910) One study published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine even found that a higher intake of fish, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids, is associated with more gray matter in the brain. This is a type of brain tissue involved in memory formation, sensory perception and decision making. (11)
