Omega 6 General Information
Omega 6 belongs to a group of good fats called polyunsaturated fatty acids and is one of two essential fatty acids that people need to remain healthy. Omega 3 is the other. The body cannot produce either essential fatty acid. The best Omega 6s are those that contain linoleic acid. Linoleic acid is converted in the body to gamma linoleic acid (GLA) and ultimately to prostaglandins, which help regulate inflammation and blood pressure as well as heart, gastrointestinal, and kidney functions. A recent finding by nutritionists is that Omega 6s and Omega 3s are good fats when they are in balanced amounts relative to the body's needs. Today, most American diets are heavy on Omega 6s, tipping the balance of Omega 6 and Omega 3s needed for optimum health. This essential fatty acid is found in cereals, eggs, poultry, most vegetable oils, whole-grain breads, baked goods, and margarine. Therapeutic oils such as evening primrose oil, borage oil, black currant seed oil, and flaxseed oil are also rich in Omega 6.

Omega 6 Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Omega 6 supplementation is used to reduce the aches, pains, and inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis. (When treating rheumatoid arthritis, using a conventional prostaglandin-inhibiting anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen in conjunction with Omega 6 will increase its effectveness.) Omega 6 is also used to relieve the symptoms of PMS, endometriosis, and fibrocystic breasts, eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea and improve diabetic neuropathy.

Omega 6 Dosage Information
Except as an adjunct to certain health conditions, Omega-6 supplements are probably not necessary; however, in the event it is needed, the recommended dose is 1,000 to 1,300 mg of borage oil daily, which provides 240 to 300 mg of GLA, the main healing ingredient. In evening primrose oil, the dose would be 3,000 mg, and 1,500 of black currant seed oil. Omega 6 supplements should be taken with food so that absorption is boosted and side effects are minimized. The health benefits of Omega 6 is usually apparent only after several months of use.

Omega 6 Safety & Interaction Information
There are no known interactions associated with Omega 6 fatty acids; however, when taking borage oil over several months, it is possible this essential fatty acid (EFA) may interfere with liver function. EFA deficiency and Omega 6/3 imbalance is linked with serious health conditions, such as heart attacks, cancer, insulin resistance, asthma, lupus, schizophrenia, depression, postpartum depression, accelerated aging, stroke, obesity, diabetes, arthritis, ADHD, and Alzheimer's disease, among others.
