(Exclusive high dose formula)
Helps support all aspects of brain and eye function
Over 25 years’ market-leading research in the development of fatty acid supplements have gone in to the formulation & patent of Efalex.
Scientific studies have indicated that three fatty acids found in Efalex – arachidonic acid (AA), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – play an important role in the development and function of our eyes and brains. A healthy supply of these good fats can help with learning ability, concentration and co-ordination and may assist in conditions such as night blindness, Dyslexia, ADHD and from Efamol latest studies aspects of Autism.
A unique DHA-rich combination of fish oil and evening primrose oil providing the important nutrients DHA, AA and GLA, which play a vital role in eye and brain function, both in the early years of our development and throughout our adult lives.
Efalex is specially formulated to:
- Support all aspects of brain and eye function
- Supplement the intake of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs) needed for healthy brain and visual development, including learning ability, concentration and co-ordination
- Supply DHA and AA – important building blocks of the brain, nervous system and eye
- Provide EPA & GLA – needed in the transmission of messages between nerves
Capsule: Efamol Pure Evening Primrose Oil, DHA-rich Fish Oil, capsule shell (gelatin, glycerine), flavouring (Thyme oil), Vitamin E (as dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate)
Liquid: Sunflower oil, DHA-rich Fish Oil, Efamol Pure Evening Primrose Oil,,lemon oil, Vitamin E (as dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate), lime flavour, thyme oil
Vitamin E is a highly effective antioxidant; it can help protect against free radical damage caused by environmental pollutants. It also has beneﬁts in helping to maintain skin health.
Research on Ingredients
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) is an important Omega-3 nutrient needed by the body for the structure of nerves and cells and is needed for brain and eye health particularly.
Arachidontc Acid (AA) is an important Omega-6 nutrient found in the membranes of nerves and helps with the transmission of messages in the central nervous system.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) are the only true EFAs are the head of the Omega-3 and Omega-6 series of fatty acids, namely Alpha-Linolenic Acid and Linoleic Acid. They must be sourced from the diet and can be broken down through complex chemical reactions in the body into LCPUFAs, which the body needs for speciﬁc metabolic processes. However, this chemical process is notoriously un-economic and is affected by diet, age, alcohol consumption, intake of saturated fats.
Long Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (LCPUFA) is a general term referring to the good fats, which are predominantly from the Omega-3 and Omega-6 series and include GLA, AA, DHA and EPA. These can be obtained from the diet and are directly used in a number of vital bodily processes.

Children 2- 5 years:
Up to 2-3 x capsules or 2 x 5ml teaspoons of liquid every day for the first twelve weeks to help optimise the body’s stores of essential fatty acids, then 1-3 x capsules or 1 x 5ml teaspoons of liquid daily thereafter.
Why take Efalex?
Is Efalex only for the children?
Can I take Efalex alongside my existing medication?
Do I take Efanatal® until I give birth and then stop taking it?
Why you may not get sufficient LCPUFAs from your diet?
Will Cod Liver Oil do the same job as Efalex?
Are there any side effects?
Whilst Efalex is generally regarded as safe to take with medicines, anyone under medical supervision, or taking medication, should consult their doctor before taking a supplement. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.
