Linoleic Acid

Anyone had any experience with Linoleic Acid as a daily supplement. Taking it does not stop relapse but reduces the severity of relapses.

Hi
I took linseed oil (not sure if this is the same thing) for a while and got totally sick of it so stopped.
No I just sprinkle some linseeds on my cereal in the morning.

Best wishes

Totally different. Linoleic acid is extracted from Sunflower seeds. It is proven to help with relapses and is recommended by the MS Society.

You can get linolenic acid from Evening Primrose Oil – I took them for a while but the capsules were really big and hard to swallow. I now take Starflower oil which it can also be found in. There is no proof yet, but there are suggestions that it helps with relapses. I dont know if it’s doing anything for me, but I take it anwyay – with the thinking that it’s not going to do me any harm, I may as well try.

oops, just re-read the label – linoleic and linolenic acid are different – back to the evening primrose oil it is then!
