Well, I'm definitley going to give it a try. I had a huge breakout this weekend and it's driving me crazy. I already order a brand of flaxseed and borage seed from Pure Encapsulations. I'll keep you posted.

It's working really really well. I'm shocked at my improvements. I still have red marks but I see they are clearing and I have no new breakouts. Anyone know any good ways to get rid of the red marks?

[immunonutrition with omega-3-fatty acids. Are new anti-inflammatory strategies in sight?]

[Article in German]

Heller A, Koch T.

In the early phase of sepsis and SIRS an overwhelming activation of humoral and cellular mediator systems can alter vascular resistance and causes capillary leakage increasing the risk of organ dysfunction. omega-6-arachidonic acid is released from lipid pools of cellular membranes during inflammation and is metabolized to pro-inflammatory prostaglandins and leukotriens, which are key mediators in the pathogenesis of organ dysfunction. omega-3-eicosapentaenoic acid-derived lipid mediators present altered biologic effects. Thus, omega-3-fatty acid application enables anti-inflammatory intervention on the level of lipid mediators. The current article reviews experimental and clinical data on omega-3-fatty acids. Besides the decrease of pro-inflammatory mediators, fish oil supplementation lowered post operative infection rates and showed a tendency to reduce hospital stay in surgical patients. It is believed that the decreased formation of LTB4 and TXA2 during sepsis after administration of omega-3-fatty acids accounts for improved microcirculatory perfusion and declined lactate acidosis

I've started using rosehips oil for my red marks and scarring. I did some research around the internet and it noted that the benefits of rosehips oil include fading pigmentation spots, acne scars and sun spots among other things.

Here are some websites I found about rosehips oil that you may find interesting.

Do you need omega 6 then ?

If you have 1 tbs of flax oil a day, don't you need to balance it with omega 6 from sunflower oil or something else ?
