Level Up Your Cognitive Powers with Efalex® Kids Brain Booster
E to the F to the A
The Efamol® name comes from ‘EFA molecule’. They have been a leader in scientific research and manufacturing of essential fatty acid supplements for over 40 years now. Quality, purity and efficacy are some of their key values. Efamol’s unique, proprietary formulas contain oils carefully extracted from their natural sources. Each of their oils are tested to ensure they are free from harmful pollutants. The Efamol® fish oil used is of superior standard and is harvested from sustainable stocks that originate in the waters near Thailand and Australia.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are nutrients crucial to brain growth and development. Lack of EFAs has been associated with mental and physical learning disorders like ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia. The most important structural omega-3 fatty acid in the brain is DHA and the most important structural omega-6 fatty acid in the brain is AA. Studies with infants show the supply of DHA and AA in early life is critical for good brain and visual development.
Efamol® Tuna Fish Oil Purity
When it comes to fish oil, questions about purity and oceanic pollutants are key concerns consumers have. Efamol® is very specific about heavy metal contamination in the tuna oil they use and has stringent quality controls that meet and exceed EU safety standards. The raw material is high quality, food grade fish body oil.
With specific reference to mercury, the levels are controlled by the source of the raw materials used, the processing of the oil and finally by analysis of the finished product. Each batch is analyzed to ensure any mercury present in the raw material has been removed.
As part of Efamol’s meeting and exceeding EU and North American industry standards, every batch must contain less than 0.01 parts per million (ppm) of mercury. PCB levels are less than 0.1 mg/kg of oil. The fish oil is also tested for approximately an additional 50 other environmental contaminants.
Efamol® is synonymous with evening primrose oil for a reason. Their unique Rigel® Evening Primrose is grown in the Netherlands and New Zealand by the same growers they have used for the last 40 years. Their evening primrose oil (EPO) contains a higher Gamma-Linoleic Acid (GLA) content than other EPOs and is gently extracted through a superior process that retains the natural antioxidants within the oil and ensures a long shelf life.
