Low calorie diets must do more than provide an adequate amount of protein. Diets must contain some fat and the right kind of fat. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) keep bodily functions from becoming sluggish and inefficient. HealthSmart EFA helps to prevent EFA deficiency. EFA deficiency has been linked to gallstones, skin disorders (dry skin, loss of hair), high blood lipid levels (increased cholesterol and triglycerides) and other serious problems. It has also been shown that an adequate EFA intake is required for optimal thermogenesis, so not getting enough essential fatty acid may reduce the effects of a weight loss diet. The unique blend of borage, fish and flax oils means that your patient can avoid the usual “fishy” taste of fish oil products which helps to assure compliance.These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
