Arachidonic Acid (AA)
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)

?Maintain a ratio of two times more omega-6 than omega-3 in your diet.
?Eating too much omega-6 can lead to producing excess bad prostaglandins.
?Take a multi-vitamin and minerals with your meals to provide these nutrients for breaking down the
essential fatty acids into prostaglandins
?Reduce the amount of meat, saturated fat, dairy, and eggs you eat to reduce the production of AA, which blocks the activities of the good prostaglandins
?Eat cold water fish at least twice a week to provide EPA and DHA to your diet
