Gamma-linolenic acid alone or when taken together with Omega-3, helps with a decrease in elevated blood pressure. According to one carried out study, with the participation of people who had high blood pressure, experts suggested that gamma-linolenic acid affects the decrease in elevated blood pressure, with regular intake, at a dosage with of 6 grams of black currant oil. If we compare the control group with the group receiving the same oil, there was a decrease in diastolic blood pressure noted.
You shouldn't also exaggerate the dosage and periods when taking Omega-6. The increased content of Omega-6 in the body can provoke inflammatory processes, heart disease, cancer, asthma, arthritis, depressive condition, while its moderate content has a beneficial effect on the human body. With participation in the study of elderly people, the data obtained from its results showed that due to Omega-6, mortality decreases, which once again proves the effectiveness of taking Omega-6.
It is important to establish and maintain a balance of these essential fatty acids. As experts point out, the ratio of 2 to 1 is optimal, where 2 is Omega-6, and 1 Omega-3. There is no necessity in taking Omega-6 in the form of dietary supplements; it can be obtained from food. Gamma-linolenic acid is one of the components of (in addition to the aforementioned oils) spirulina or blue-green alga.
