body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to make all but two of
acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, andalpha-linolenic
the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet
and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs).
fatty acids are well-supplied in the diet by meat and vegetable oils.
However, not all omega-6 fatty acids are of equal value. Arachidonic
acid (AA) tends to be unhealthy because it is the precursor of
inflammatory eicosanoids — such as prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane
A2, and leukotriene B4 — which promote inflammation. In contrast,gamma-linolenic
found in evening primrose oil, borage oil, and black currant oil, is an
important fatty acid that plays a beneficial role in healthy
prostaglandin (PGE1) formation and pro-inflammatory mediator reduction.98,99
