How does Arachidonic Acid work? 

Arachidonic acid, or Ara for short, is an Omega 6 fatty acid found in 
the phospholipids of a body's cells (Human + Animal). Arachidonic 
Acid allows for the production of eicosanoids which are signalling 
molecules that exert control over inflammatory and immunity pathways. 
The greater the amount of Arachidonic Acid in the body, the more 
eicosanoids are produced and the greater the inflammation. 

It is through these Eicosanoids that the majority of benefits seen 
with Arachidonic acid and its effect on body composition are noticed 
and the reason why anti-inflammatories (which downregulate eicosanoid 
synthesis) are typically avoided around consumption of Arachidonic 

There are multiple subgroupings of Eicosanoids which are:


An increase in production of eicosanoids will lead to an increase 
in the above. We however, are only seeking an increase in the 
prostaglandins and desire to limit the conversion of Ara into the 
other three (more on this later). 

An increase in the prostaglandins PGE2 and PGF2a bought upon by 
Arachidonic Acid supplementation stimulates muscle protein synthesis 
after a bout of exercise. 

In essence, via a lot of complicated pathways, Arachidonic Acid --> 
Exercise --> PGF2a + PGE2 = GAINZZZ
