    Looking at ArA, specially X Gels, I was wondering if moderate hypertension, as well slightly elevated LDL levels, would be reason enough to not supplement this?

    ArA won't negatively impact either of those; so you are good to go.

    Thanks all for the replies! I was a little concerned with the Omega-6 being a pro inflammatory.

    No change in blood pressure on any of my runs. You'll be good to go.

    If you're concerned, run some bloodwork during your ARA run; there is a risk with the LDL, but I very much doubt you will have any issues.

    Thanks everyone. I went ahead and ordered X Gels. I'll keep track of my BP during the run.

    As others have stated, I doubt you'll notice a difference in BP with ArA.

    If you get a CRP lab done, that might be elevated and hospitals tend to use that value as one of the markers of possible heart attack.

    Thanks for mentioning this. I actually had my C-Reactive Protein measured this past January with a result of 3 mg/L which apparently shows some level of systemic inflammation.
