Total EFA Omega 3-6-9 is a blend of essential fatty acids extracted from fish, flaxseed, and borage oil. The formula manufactured by a company called Health from the Sun is advertised to support the health of the brain, joints, skin, and cardiovascular function, to assist the nervous system, and to increase focus, memory, and attention.

Health from the Sun was founded in 1976 and claims to be a leader in Omega essential fatty acids and phytonutrients. The company’s product range includes a complete line of premium-quality nutritional supplements designed to support its health-conscious consumers’ needs.

Total EFA Omega 3-6-9 is recommended to adults who wish to provide extra support for their hearts, brains, joints, and skin. The manufacturer claims the fish oil is molecularly distilled, hence ensuring the product’s purity.


1) Quick Overview

Total EFA Omega 3-6-9 is a mixture of essential fatty acids, particularly Omega-3’s ALA, EPA and DHA, the Omega-6’s Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) and Linoleic Acid, and the Omega-9 Oleic Acid.

Omega-3 fatty acids are Alpha Linoleic Acid (ALA), Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). They are considered essential because they are not naturally produced by the body and hence have to be supplied from food or supplementation.

While ALA is found in vegetable sources (flaxseed, borage, canola, soy, etc.), EPA and DHA can be most abundantly found in fish and seaweed. These fatty acids are known for their blood-thinning properties.

They may reduce the risk of stroke, coronary artery disease, and other conditions affected by low blood function.DHA is a structural component of the brain and eyes (retina). Hence its presence is essential to their normal functioning.

The EPA is believed to influence mood, and preliminary evidence indicates it might reduce depression, alleviate bipolar disorder symptoms, borderline personality disorder, and schizophrenia.

Because they improve peripheral circulation, Omega-3’s help maintains a healthy cognitive function, especially memory and attention. Research shows that patients with ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease may benefit from supplementation.
