Some EFA Resources:

There are many ways to increase the amount of EFAs in you or your child's diet.  You can for one increase the amount of fish.  However, due to concerns of mercury which are recognized by the Institute of Medicine and the FDA, you may want to be aware of the types of fish you or your child consume. (Click here to read info from FDA / 20-20 / Consumer Reports / Dr. Stordy and other links)  Try to stick to fish that is "low on the food chain" like sardines vs. swordfish or shark.  Mercury adheres to the muscle of the fish-and mercury can only adhere to protein, for this reason, it is impossible according to Dr. Katz for any fish oil to contain mercury.  However, fish oil can be rancid-so please only purchase Essential Fatty Acids from reputable companies that will verify their products purity in writing.

 
In the CHERAB scientific reports you will find that most children benefited from the Omega 3 and Omega 6 formula called ProEFA.  You can purchase Efalex-which is an Omega 3 Omega 6 formula similar to ProEFA at GNC.  Efalex recommends a higher dosage of  4 to 8 capsules a day vs. the much lower dosage of 1 to 2 capsules a day recommendation of ProEFA.  You can also purchase Ultimate Omega - an Omega 3 Omega 6 formula like ProEFA made by the same company.  There are many others manufacturers of EFAs out there, and most are inexpensive to try.  You may wonder however, "How do you get 'fish oil' into a child?!!"  or,  "Can I give EFAs to my baby who's showing signs of being a late talker?"  Click here to read up on this!

Here are some online resources for EFAs (in alphabetical order) from reputable companies.
