Is is bad to consume too much flaxseen meal or ALA if you are schizophrenic and may not convert to DHA and EPA that well? Does your body just eliminate the excess? Also, how do you know if you are converting or not?
I am not sure myself. The expert on these kind of issues would be Udo Erasmus. See Frequently asked questions about essential fats. Here's a link to what he says about getting too much. I think your body simply uses the excess essential fats for energy, just like it would other fats.
I am not sure how to know if your body converts it or not, but to be on the sure side you can certainly take DHA (fish oils) and eat fish.
Hi, great informative article. I ran down and bought some flax oil straight away, and gulped it down with my toddler. Hopefully it's not too late! I have a question for you, it does not appear clear to me: does breast milk contain ALA and LA, or does breastmilk "only" contain DHA and RHA?
Breast milk has ALA and LA, DHA and many other kinds of fats too. The quantities of these fatty acids are influenced by mother's diet. DHA seems to be essential to infants; their bodies cannot seemingly manufacture DHA from ALA (found in flax oil).
Not all is known about all these fats. But check Google for breast milk dha
breast milk ala
breast milk la
and so on to find more... it's mostly scientific studies.
virgin coconut oil is a good source of lauric acid for breast milk, see Dr Mercola website http://www.mercola.com/index.htm
I am so interested in this topic, especially so because I am nursing my 7 month old and have supplemented my diet with omega 3 since pregnancy. I find there is not enough info out there for women, most doctors aren't informed. Everyone comments on how ALERT my son is. (By the way...he's an especially happy child too) I can't help but wonder if he is reaping the rewards of those omega3's. I like to think so! :)))
Thank you for the needed information. I have MS and I would not be surprised if it was in part due to my "not so good" diet. I have just today started taking a flaxeed oil supplement. Thank you!!!
Concise and informative. I didn't know the scientific distinction between the generic "omega 3" and "omega 6" terms and their truly essential sub-categories, Alpha-linoleic and Linoleic Acids, until reading this. A lot of people think that fish oils provide the "essential" omega 3 fatty acid (ALA); it's illuminating to read here that these oils only provide non-essential omega-3 fatty acids.
Very informative. I have made dietry changes after reading this information.
