Generally animals produce a certain amount of the fatty acids they need, the fatty acids which they can't produce are called essential and changes from one species to another. You'll need to consult your local vet on which fatty acids your pet needs and which one is essential to him.

Best solgar natural products to assist cystic fibrosis plese

Hello Friend,
Sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Out of all the things to consider, most importantly TRUST your body first !!!
These are only suggestions. With that said, when dealing with Cystic Fibrosis, you want to target not only the Liver which is the filter of the body and cleans the blood yet you also want to decrease the inflammation with an Essential Fatty Acid and then build up the Immune System with supplements like Amino Acids and Antioxidants and Medicinal Mushrooms like Reishi.
please keep in mind this is a partial list and only suggestions based on extremely limited information.
Best of luck!

Does Gx-9 work in fighting disease?

Hello Friend,
As with any product you have to take into the consideration the quality of it and the source of its materials. Now with that said, Essential Fatty Acids, which are a main ingredient in this product is a VITAL oily nutrient that the body does NOT make on its own, so therefore we must seek it our diets. The beauty of Essential Fattys Acids (EFAs) is that the body uses them to fight inflammation which is THE number one cause of disease. Just think of your car, what happens when there's no oil (EFAs) in your engine (your body) ... It blows up (inflammation=disease)!
So put another way ... Yes, Essential Fatty Acids are vital in fighting disease! Another off shoot of this is a Ketogenic Diet which is high (good) fats found in flax, salmon, avocados, nuts, borage, evening primrose, hemp, etc and low in carbs, sugars has helped many many people on the verge of devastating illnesses such as epilepsy.
Here are some ketogenic resources to get you started on your health journey in fighting disease and winning health!
The Ketogenic Diet is an affiliate link because I believe in the Power of Knowledge and Healthy Foods and especially
Essential Fatty Acids!
image-2i4skrfytcebz4oja4je5cyi-3-0.jpg This is a picture of what to look for should you decide to buy the supplement from a healthfood store.
Source Naturals is an incredible brand.
9780920470381-2i4skrfytcebz4oja4je5cyi-3-1.jpg And this is an amazing book about Essentials Fatty Acids by Udo Erasmus (love that name, Udo!) that are the major component in a ketogenic diet.
Best of luck to you Friend!

What is the vitamins of the brain

Here are descriptions of the main types of vitamins that can affect memory and brain power:
  1. B Vitamins. Research shows that B vitamins improve memory by creating a protective shield for the neurons in the brain. B vitamins break down homocysteine, which is an amino acid that is a toxic poison to nerve cells. These vitamins also aid in the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen, an important brain nutrient.The most important B vitamins for memory include B6, B12, and Folic Acid (B9). You can increase the B vitamins in your diet by taking vitamin supplements and by consuming healthy, natural foods such as spinach and other dark, leafy greens; broccoli, asparagus, strawberries, melons, black beans, leeks, and other legumes, citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruit, and soybeans.
  2. Antioxidants. Vitamins C, E, and beta carotene are antioxidants and are also important vitamins for memory. Antioxidants protect brain tissue by breaking down free radicals, which are toxic forms of the oxygen molecule natually found in the bloodstream. Antioxidant vitamins and memory are linked because the damage free radicals do can impare the functioning of the neurons in your brain. Like the B vitamins, in other words, the antioxidant vitamins prevent damage to the basic brain structures.
    Supplementing with antioxidant vitamins daily is recommended. In addition, these vitamins can be found in naturally occurring foods such as blueberries, strawberries, and other berries; sweet potatoes; red tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, green tea and other types of tea, nuts and seeds, and citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits.
    Note that with some of these foods, you get both the B vitamins and the antioxidants - a double dose of vitamins for memory improvement!
  3. Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are not really "vitamins" as such, but important fat molecules that enhance memory and brain function. So much is said about so-called bad fats, but the Omega-3 fatty acids are actually a class of good fats. These fats help protect the brain against inflammation and high cholesterol. That's what makes these fatty acids good vitamins for memory improvement.
