The I and C group values are presented as respectively red squares and blue diamonds, and the resp. full and dashed line. A. Percent change in EPA in I (r 0.50, P < 0.01) and C (r −0.17, P > 0.05), B. Percent change in DGLA in I (r 0.60, P < 0.0001) and C (r −0.24, P > 0.05), C. Percent change in ALA in I (r 0.43, P < 0.01) and C (r −0.19, P > 0.05), and D. Percent change in AA in I (r 0.16, P > 0.05) and C (r −0.28, P > 0.05).
