Influence of Dietary Linoleic Acid Intake with Different Fat Intakes on Arachidonic Acid Concentrations in Plasma and Platelet Lipids and Eicosanoid Biosynthesis in Female Volunteers
Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism
Background/Aim: N-6 fatty acids are considered to promote diseases prevalent in industrialized countries and characterized by an increased eicosanoid biosynthesis from arachidonic acid (AA). We investigated the impact of the linoleic acid (LA) intake on AA levels in humans. Methods: Six healthy female volunteers (age range 23-34 years) were given liquid formula diets (LFD) devoid of AA for 6 weeks, providing a constant intake of zero ener-gy% (LFD 0: protein 15%, carbohydrates 85%) or 20doi:10.1159/000068906 pmid:12624485 fatcat:3h4ff4e2ejex5hejhnom7puut4
