But, the reality is that most of us don’t follow a well-balanced diet on a
regular basis. Of particular importance are foods such fish, nuts and seeds.
These foods are rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) -
nutrients our bodies need and that must be obtained through diet or
Just like vitamins & minerals, it is often difficult to obtain the
recommended amount of EFAs through diet alone. This is because EFAs have
been virtually eliminated from the modern diet due to the mass commercial
refinement of fats & oils. And, very often these health-promoting fats have
been replaced with unhealthy “partially-hydrogenated” fats.

individuals should seek the advice of their doctor before beginning the
program particularly diabetics, pregnant or lactating women.
Take 1-2 capsules with breakfast or at dinnertime. For individuals with
inflammatory skin problems, increase the dosage to 3-4 capsules. Note: We
recommend building slowly to the full dose, starting with 1 capsule per day
and increasing the dosage after a few days.
