Dear friend, greetings form HCM. i understand your question. you need to use a oil rich in poly unsaturated fatty acids and mono unsaturated fatty acids. rice bran oil, corn oil, olive oil all are good. as such you are giving him all the good supplements and are neuroprotective .
thank you and do contact us for more queries.
