    I keep reading how good primrose oil and black current seed oil is for you. What does Dr. Peat think of these oils?

    Toxic. They are unsaturated fats and those ones specifically may have compounds in them besides the fat that are also toxic.

    All of the supplemental oils are toxic:

    Fish Oil
    Salmon Oil
    Cod Liver Oil
    Fermented Cod Liver Oil
    Krill Oil
    Arctic Krill Oil
    Hempseed Oil
    Borage Oil
    Evening Primrose Oil
    Black Currant Seed Oil
    Flaxseed Oil
    Sea Buckthorn Oil

    Do you hear how good it is from someone selling these possibly estrogenic compounds?

    The only non Peaty supp/food that I've heard him be open about is chia seeds (if memory is working ok) for digestion, he said he heard quite a bit of feedback on how it helped and did not sound completely opposed to it.

    It was in an askyourherbdoctor podcast and he answered a caller's question, maybe this one (if it was chia seeds I actually remembered about)
    Blood Pressure Regulation, Heart Failure And Muscle Atrophy - Kmud, 2012-07-20

    HD2: They are very mucilaginous, and they could be acting as a laxative to your bowels. Have your bowel movements improved?

    Caller: They were never haywire.

    HD2: I know that they traditionally are used as an energizer, but I don't know what compound in it that has been reported to be energizing.


    RP: If it works as a bulk laxative it would make you feel better by lowering bacterial endotoxin.

    ---

    So he reckons they may lower endotoxin and I doubt they are digested in any way when they're eaten, he would probably recommend other fibers or laxative over them though, it sounds like I may have been talking out of my ass.

    The question is oil supplements for what? Greasing the machine?

    A teaspoon of coconut oil with meals may have some benefit?
    Coconut Oil

    Would this be a definite No to use topically? I have a product that contains it, that I was going to try for a skin condition.
