Inflammatory Conditions Using the essential fatty acid for inflammation is one of the best ways to reduce pain due to inflammation. It does not matter what type of inflammation you have, the fatty acids will reduce it. Everyone has low level inflammation. This inflammation you have doesn’t cause you much pain, and if it does, you may just ignore it. But it is this low level inflammation that will eventually develop into degradation of your organs, when you are older. Sometimes you can see inflammation, when you get injured or have a skin disease, like acne blemishes, psoriasis, or eczema. For any skin disease that you have, you need to be taking fish oil, using flax seed oil, or supplementing with the omegas. Acne is an inflammatory condition that you need to counter with an antiinflammatory supplement.

How to Use Fatty Acids You can extend your life and reduce




age-related supplementing

your diet with the essential fatty acids. Most of these agerelated diseases are a result of unchecked



your body. Use omega – 6, olive oil, but not too much, since it reduces the good effects of omega - 3, flax seed oil or fish oil. Omega – 6 has inflammatory properties and that is why you need to balance it with omega – 3, which has anti-inflammatory properties. Eating too much olive oil will create excessive inflammation in your body and especially if you don’t supplement your diet with omega – 3. Which Fatty Acids to Use Flax seed oil contains omega-3 and omega-6 oils that are broken down in your body into DHA and EPA. Fish oil already has DHA and EPA ready for your body to use. It is DHA and EPA that breakdown further into prostaglandins. It is prostaglandins that provide cells with information on how to function and reduce inflammation.

Fish oil already has DHA and EPA so your body does not have to create these fatty acids as it does from flax seed oil. Some people do not have the ability to take flax seed oil and break it down into DHA and EPA. So for them it is better to use fish oil. How can you tell if you can breakdown flax seed oil into DHA and EPA? Well, it’s not easy. You would have to take blood tests to find out. So, it best to take both flax seed oil and fish oil. Both have some nutrients that the other does not have. Go to Google and put in fish oil, then look at the label of various products and look for the quantities of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9, GLA, EPA and DHA. I have not discussed omega – 9 or GLA, but GLA breaks down from omega -6. Omega – 9 is found in oils and in avocado and is an extremely health fatty acid. And don’t forget that you can also get your omega 3 from eating fish. Fish has the best protein since your stomach can process it better than meat. If you can, you should be eating fish two times a week. And, if you include a salad with your fish that has olive oil, you can get both omega 3 and omega 6 at the same time. If you have acne, you need the essential fatty acids. This is must supplement for this condition. There are many other remedies that you should be aware of to help you win your war with acne.
