What makes essential fatty acids (EFAs) essential? They’re referred to as essential, because the body cannot produce these types of fat on its own, so obtaining them from dietary sources is key. EFA’s play many crucial roles in the body, exerting influence over mood, energy, belly fat, brain function and memory. Thus, EFA rich foods are part of the cornerstone of Dr. Perricone’s anti inflammatory diets.
Some of the most essential fatty acid rich foods are:
- Cold water fish
- Olive oil
- Raw nuts
