I have the impression that fish oil (omega 3) supplementation takes many, many months before any benefit can be felt.
If true, does the same hold true for cutting out omega 6 seed oils & nuts to improve the ratio of omega 6:3 ??
I know that anything that ends in 'itis' means inflammation, and that omega 3 is anti-inflammation, so I'm curious if the omega 6:3 might be helpful to improve tendinitis.
During the last 3 months, I've done a good job of reducing the total quantity of Omega 6 oils, and increasing saturated fats. Now I'm ready to focus on the ratio of the remaining PUFA.
So, it's reasonable to believe that it takes at least as long for the process to be mostly complete in humans.
I believe effects of the omega-3s on blood lipids, etc. show up sooner, though.
I don't know.. Within a couple weeks of decreasing omega-6 and supplementing with liquid fish oil, salmon, and grass fed meat and coconut oil inflammation severely decreased. Maybe internally it takes longer thOugh-- makes sense
