Question: How does someone get arachidonic acid and choline without eggs and liver?
So apart from liver and egg yolks, I think that it is very difficult to get enough arachidonic acid from food. Yes, GLA might help, but there's actually arachiodonic acid supplements. And for the vegans out there, I don't know if the production process is strictly vegan, but they are derived from a specific mushroom and you can get them on Amazon. So I think supplementing with arachidonic acid is probably the most direct way to do that. And then evening primrose or a barrage oil could help provide precursors to arachidonic acid.
