One key area in which essential fatty acids play an important role is in producing hormones. Since fatty acids are the major building blocks of all fats and are absolutely vital for hormone production, they are crucial players in addressing hormonal imbalance.
Of particular importance is the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats, since this influences the types of by-products that arise from both families of fats. In particular, the most important by-products are specific prostaglandins from omega-6 GLA and omega-3 EPA. These fats play a role in women’s health at any age,
Women experiencing symptoms such as fatigue, skin and sleep issues, weight gain, low mood, poor libido, hot flushes (such as those experienced with PMS or menopause) are likely suffering with hormone imbalance. All hormones are derived partially from fats and the body requires specific fats from the diet to create and balance hormones, and regulate the complex endocrine system involved in producing and secreting hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers and are involved in mood regulation and sexual and reproductive function.
Supplementing with important omega-3 and omega-6 fats in Maintain or Echiomega offers dual-action support for women's health and hormone balance; firstly, in providing the building blocks required to synthesise and regulate hormones and, secondly, in helping to ensure that the endocrine system involved in hormonal control is kept in check.

Vitamin B6 plays an important role as a coenzyme in the metabolism of fats, protein and carbohydrate, as well as the production of neurotransmitters serotonin and tryptophan.
