    Arachidonic acid & Aspirin


    Ive just begun researching Arachidonic Acid supplements. Ive read that Aspirin inhibits COX which converts Arachidonic acid. Is this good or bad? Bad right? So avoid Aspirin?

    Baby Aspirin is good alongside ArA

    If you take aspirin for a headache once in a while it's not that bad. If you use aspirin daily however, it may have a slight effect.

    Roll with baby aspirin. If you're really worried dose it like fish oil and keep it well away from any ArA dose.

    Baby aspirin deactivates COX-1 irreverisbly (on platelets) prior to entry in the liver. Systemic COX-2 deactivation via salicylate is next to nil at 81mg. Timing doesn't matter. It will enhance, not hinder, your ArA run by reducing TxA2 formation as a metabolite of ArA

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    People recommend using a carnitine and GMS as well. Good sources for those include Compete and Hemavol.
