The Root of All Oils

Gamma-linolenic acid is an important, conditionally-essential fatty acid (EFA). GLA is an Omega-6 fatty polyunsaturated acid found in plant-based oils like borage seed oil, evening primrose oil and black currant seed oil. Evening primrose was grown by Native Americans to treat swelling in the body.

Essential fatty acids are important for normal body function. For example, GLA is found in human breast milk. It may help normal brain function and normal growth and development.* It may help support skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism and maintain the reproductive system.*

 

Essential Fatty Acids Balance the Body

The body requires a strict balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

GLA is produced naturally in the body under certain conditions. The EFA linolenic acid (LA) is prevalent in many vegetable oils and egg yolk. When your body ingests LA, it converts it to GLA, which then converts to one of two acids with opposing functions. If it becomes Arachidonic Acid (AA) it can cause inflammation, but if it becomes DGLA, it may actually reduce acute exercise-induced inflammation.*
