In the initial part of the Omega-6 metabolic pathway, you go from LA to GLA to DGLA. The steps after DGLA involve AA. The LA through DGLA are generally anti-inflammatory, whereas the AA steps and beyond are... (more)
The synthetic antioxidants, aldehydes, peroxides and hydroperoxides in processed oils is what causes inflammation. Would be great if Paleo followers would stop regurgitating nonsense. Especially the Omega ratio nonsense that has absolutely... (more)
When your diet mainly consists of grain fed meats containing omega 6, what can you do to counteract the effects and add enough omega 3's to make a healthy ratio?
Asprey says stay away from Omega-6 acids, but I find that coconut, eggs, and avocado are all sources. Can anybody clear this up for me? Sorry if it's common sense I'm just overlooking. If you just want to debate Bulletproof please don't bother.... (more)

So I'm thinking of switching to a more fish based diet instead of grass fed beef if I can get cheaper fish. After a nutritional comparison the only thing missing is zinc which I can supplement with two oysters/day. But now I'm worried I... (more)
There is plenty O6 in eggs and coconut oil. Not sure what coconut cream is, but if it is coconut oil, 136 grams will contain over 4 grams of O6, which is more than enough.
