Where is Arachidonic acid found in the body?
Arachidonic acid exists in all mammalian cells, is usually esterified into membrane phospholipids, and is one of the most abundant polyunsaturated fatty acids in human tissues. Arachidonic acid (AA), also known as arachidonic acid, is an important essential fatty acid for the human body. It is also the most abundant and widely distributed polyunsaturated fatty acid in the human body. It is important to maintain the structure and function of the somatic cell membrane. At present, arachidonic acid is widely used in health food, cosmetics, medicine and other fields.
Through Pubmed search, it was found that the clinical research of arachidonic acid mainly focused on reproductive health, fetal and child growth and development, cancer prevention, clinical diagnosis and treatment of inflammation, etc.
Lewkowitsch documented these findings in a compilation of physical and chemical data on oils, fats and waxes published in 1913. He noticed that Hartley did not name the acid. Therefore, based on the existing name of arachidonic acid (C20:0), he suggested that the analog of C20:4 be named “arachidonic acid”. So far, this unsaturated fatty acid has been officially named arachidonic acid and has been further studied by later generations.
What does Arachidonic acid do?
Arachidonic acid is an important substance in the development of the human brain and optic nerve. It plays an important role in human intelligence and the sensitivity of the optic nerve. It can esterify cholesterol, increase blood vessel elasticity and reduce blood viscosity. Therefore, it plays an important role in preventing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, diabetes and tumors. Arachidonic acid is the precursor of prostaglandins and thromboxanes. Arachidonic acid can be increased during inflammation, with physiological effects such as redness, swelling, heat and pain. Some inflammation can protect the body.
Long-term excessive arachidonic acid is one of the important sources of chronic inflammation. Arachidonic acid is necessary for the human body, but not too much. I can take it at ordinary times, almost no one needs it. Unless you don’t eat fat at all, it promotes inflammation. Both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can produce prostaglandins, but the difference is that the prostaglandins of omega-6 are proinflammatory PG2, while the prostaglandins metabolized by omega-3 are anti-inflammatory PG3. Both need the same enzyme to promote metabolism, so there is a direct competitive relationship, which does not mean PG2 is bad. Many cellular functions require certain inflammatory substances, but not too much. Therefore, the intake of omega-3 can balance the intake of omega-6. The recommended intake ratio of omega-3: omega-6 is 1:4-6. Mega-3 mainly comes from deep-sea animals. Animals such as fish and seals don’t eat too much. The WHO claims that only Eskimos in the world need to consider the problem of excessive intake of omega-3 because they often eat seals and deep-sea fish. There are also some linseed oil, which can not be absorbed as much as you eat. The main effect is to reduce the intake of omega-6, just like there are fixed seats on the train. If you have too many omega-6 seats, you can’t let some omega-3 grab seats.
Arachidonic acid (ARA), used together with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), is an important nutrient combination for infant development. ARA is an omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid [C20:4 (n-6)], which naturally exists in human breast milk.
Adults can easily convert dietary fatty acids into ARA and DHA, but this ability has not been fully developed in infants. Breast milk is their only natural source of ARA and DHA. Add to infant formula products.

Is arachidonic acid saturated or unsaturated? actually Arachidonic acid belongs to unsaturated fatty acid, which mainly exists in cell membrane phospholipids. Phospholipase can make arachidonic acid produce prostaglandins and leukotrienes respectively through cyclooxygenase or lipid oxidase, which can cause inflammation. It is recommended that people with inflammatory diseases avoid eating foods with high arachidonic acid levels as far as possible. PS: Beef and mutton, animal liver, pig adrenal gland, blood, fish oil and egg yolk are the main sources of arachidonic acid. the foods with arachidonic acid uses were safe and acceptable for the supplement, Good benefit for humans health.
