"While all essential fatty
acids are crucial for our diet, it is important to ensure
that we have a balance of the omega-3s and omega-6s, and
even a further balance between the different types of omega-6s.
For example, someone who frequently gets their omega-3s by
flaxseed or oil in their meal preparation but does not have a source of GLA-rich
(as found in evening primrose oil or borage) can become deficient in GLA."
