OMEGA 6 CAPSULES FOR PMS PAIN?
Q I suffer from menstrual pain, and was told I should take an evening primrose oil supplement every day. But I’ve been doing this for a while now and can’t see a huge change.
APrimrose oil is a source of omega 6 fatty acid. Most people use vegetable cooking oils at home and/or eat out a lot in places where the chefs use mainly vegetable oil. But this is a reason so many young girls these days have hormonal issues – we are consuming way too much Omega 6 fatty acid.
For hormonal well-being, we need a very delicate balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6.
Currently we are getting almost six to eight times more Omega 6 than required. I suggest you stop taking primrose oil, therefore, and instead take only Omega 3 (2,000mg) if you have any hormonal issues, to reduce inflammation and help combat pain during PMS.
Taking Omega 3 for three consecutive months will help your body to respond better to insulin, you will have more stable sugar levels and probably better skin and hair health!
