PhytoNutri Essential Fatty Acids include Linoleic Acid, Omega-3 Fatty Acid and Monounsaturated fats, these are considered to be the 'good' fats.
The body can synthesise most of the fats it needs from the diet. However, two essential fatty acids, linolenic and alpha-linoleic acid, cannot be synthesised in the body and must be obtained from food. These basic fats, found in plant foods, are used to build specialised fats called omega-3 and omega-6.
This means they need to be acquired from the diet or from supplements.
