No wonder my oil production has lessened, and is already less thick. Awesome!!
lesson for the day, everyone needs efa's, no matter what
Cheers for that it's an interesting website and very helpful as i learn how my body works and what it needs. It may sound strange but i am finally after 9 depressing years of Acne enjoying the challange of beating it and am seeing results at last. This website is great wish i had found it a few years ago
one of my theorys was that acne comedos are basically your body trying to expel bad fats so you wont have a heart attack and thats all acne may be, the coagulant fats clog up your sebaceous glands forming a comedo or plug where bacteria can thrive and cause inflammation.
and that by changing the composition of your dietary fats o6/o3 would also change the composition(or viscosity) of your sebum actually making it flow smoother.
also dietary fats affect proliferation of cells.
so much more to this so read all the fish oil threads.
