Possible Interaction: Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Linolenic Acid

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Compared to our previous study, where we simply increased the ALA intake, our results show that ALA supplementation combined with a reduced LA intake (loLA/hiALA diet) more efficiently enhanced EPA blood concentrations.

ALA or GLA given as single supplements did not increase LCP omega 3 status, but their combination augmented LCP omega 3 (in CE) and EPA (in fasting TG) to a statistically significant, but nevertheless negligible, extent.

Among vegetarians and persons who consume low amounts of linoleic acid (C 18:2n-6 ), dietary intake of alphalinolenic acid (C 18:3n-3 ) from other foods such as tofu, soybean oil, and canola oil may increase cell membrane levels of EPA.
