Question about GLA!
The latest FF books recommends GLA in the form of black currant seed oil over EPO or borage oil because it's more balanced. What does 'more balanced' mean in this context and how important is the ideal balance in terms of stimulating brown fat? (I want to try some new Unikey products, but I'm going to have to buy my own GLA in order to stick to my budget...)
I'm also wondering if there would be benefits to taking more than the recommended amount of GLA per day.
Final question... I remember reading that EPO is known to alleviate PMS symptoms and/or menstrual cramps. I can't exactly remember. I have severe PMS symptoms and menstrual cramps, so I was wondering if it's the EPO specifically that helps, or is it the GLA, and do we know why it helps? Is there a protocol for taking EPO/GLA that would be ideal in terms of fighting these symptoms? More around my period time or just stick to a consistent daily dose?
Hi Katie! This is the perfect question for Dr. Ann Louise I'll be happy to re-post this for you on the live chat thread for her to answer next Tuesday! We look forward to 'seeing' you there!
Have a great day!!
