Understanding EFA Supplement Labeling

Some supplement manufacturers’ labels fail to separately identify and distinguish between the parent EFAs from the EFA derivatives, making it difficult to tell whether you are getting parent EFAs or EFA derivatives. Parent Ometa-6 is called linoleic acid, or “LA”. Parent Omega-3 is called alpha-linolenic acid, or “ALA”. Make sure of what you’re getting before you purchase a pre-formulated supplement.

The reason why we mention this, is because your body naturally produces all of the derivatives it needs from the parent essential oils. Taking derivatives can lead to an imbalance in EFAs within your body, and possible health-related issues may arise.

Here is a table of the most common EFA derivatives:

Common Derivatives of Parent Omega-6:

GLA (Gamma-linolenic Acid)

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

Common Derivatives of Parent Omega-3:

EPA (Eicosapentaeonic Acid)

DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid)

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU MAKE SURE THE OILS ARE RAW, UNPROCESSED, AND ORGANIC – not heated or chemically treated. Otherwise, in your attempt to prevent cancer, you may be actually harming yourself with carcinogens (cancer-causing substances). Heating and other processing methods destroy the EFAs, result in transfats, and can add other harmful chemicals and impurities to the oil.

Always make sure you have the right ratio of Parent Omega-6 to Omega-3 Essential oils (1:1 – 2.5:1).
