    Arachidonic Acid taken with EFAs


    Does anyone know if and why you are not supposed to take Fish/Flax oil while taking an arachidonic acid product?

    because it interferes with the ingestion and availability of the AA.

    You can take some EFA's with AA.

    The reason that it is recommended not to go overboard with EFA's while on AA is that AA enhances the natural inflammatory process that comes from training. EFA's (omega 3's specifically) can be anti-inflammatory.

    You can and should take a normal dose of EFA's just don't overdo it.

    We have AA in Animal Test and I've taken it with Animal Omega and have not had any interactions.

    Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't arachidonic acid derived from linoleic or alpha-linolenic acid? So basically, doesn't one of the EFA break down into arachidonic acid?

    I've been taking Halodrol liquigels now for a week at three a day and I can certainly feel the increased soreness. Should I wait for the DOMS to subside in a muscle group before working it out again, like I would normally, or am I just always going to be sore while on AA?

    On a side note I've had the liquigels for over a year now that I bought at GNC when i was uninformed and naive about supplements. I just figured I'd finally use them. I'd rather be using X-Factor. Just being clear that I do not condone anyone purchasing anything at GNC, and I think these liquigels are a waste of money next to other AA products available at NP.

    I just started Hemodraulix today. - The dosing is different than most AA products, though. This is strictly a pre-workout product. Contains other stuff like BA, Arginine AKG, Sesamin Oil, etc.

    5g HMB
    2g DiCreatine Malate
    1 Formadrol Extreme
    4g Super Cissus RX
    1g VitC
    3 SLIN

    Breakfast

    1hr Post-breakfast (30mins pre-workout):

    3x RPM
    6x Hemodraulix
    Dab of Renegade balm

    Intra-wo:

    2 servings Purple Wrath (soon to be replaced with BC+EAA)
    10g BCAA
    2g DiCreatine Malate
    60g WMS
    1g VitC

    ...but ya, it was a nice pump.
