Re: Men and Evening Primrose Oil
Is Evening Primrose Oil good for men ? Well lets look at it and then decide.....Its an Omega-6 fatty acid that has GammaLinolenic Acid which helps produce Prostaglandins or Hormones that have an antiinflammatory effect in the body. Its supposed to help lower blood pressure, diabete's, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, eczema, neuropathy, salivary glands etc...
Sounds pretty good except that its a double edge sword. While its needed for the health of the body most of us consume way too many Omega-6 fatty acids daily (grains, cooking oils, fast/junk foods) so in doing so allows this good fat to be converted to Arachidonic Acid which is the Master Inflammatory Hormone in the body which sends out destuctive Cytokines, Interleukins,and Tumor Necrosis Factor which cause most of the inflammatory diseases in the body. So if you take it just take small amounts daily (500 mg) and make sure to take the Omega-3 oils with it....Later !!
