Part Description

LP33085-9   Fatty acids.omega 6
The omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids are necessary nutrients that cannot be produced in the body. They are essential to normal brain function and to growth and development. In addition, omega-6 fatty acids help stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and maintain the reproductive system. The source of omega-6 fatty acids is mainly from vegetable oils including linoleic acid (LA). LA is converted in the body to gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and further broken down to arachidonic acid (AA). GLA is believed to reduce inflammation and can be found as a supplement in evening primrose oil, borage oil, and black currant seed oil. The GLA in these supplements is converted to dihomo-y-linolenic acid (DGLA) which has anti-inflammatory properties. Nutrients that help drive the conversion of GLA to DGLA include magnesium, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin B3, and vitamin B6.[https://www.umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/supplement/omega6-fatty-acids] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
