The Role of Essential Fatty Acids in Hormone Function

Developed by

Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) play a critical role in supporting a balanced hormone profile. In this excerpt from the Functional Endocrinology: Connecting New Research with Practical Applications seminar developed by Dr. Datis Kharrazian, we explore the impact of EFAs on the development of prostaglandins that affect the function and signaling of hormones. Key studies and literature relating to the influence of prostaglandins on reproductive processes, as well as how to identify and address potential EFA-related hormone imbalances, are also discussed.

Topics
  • Why hormones cannot be balanced if a patient’s EFA levels are off
  • How to harness basic testing to identify the cause of hormone imbalance
  • Insights into what prostaglandin imbalance looks like and how to achieve balance between pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory prostaglandins
  • The effect of prostaglandins and EFAs on the feedback loop, receptor site response, and pathways
  • The effects trans-fatty acids on prostaglandin synthesis (delta-6-desaturase [D6D]) from dietary EFAs
  • Clinical jewels and insights
