From a Dietary Perspective
A documented university study shows that over 70% of the fatty acids in emu fat are of the unsaturated variety. These polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats tend to lower blood cholesterol and have also been documented to contain Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Although the human body needs these fatty acids for many functions, it cannot produce them and consequently must obtain these acids from the diet. Taking an emu dietary supplement will provide these essential fatty acids.
