The GLA formula provides a therapeutic dose of the omega-6 GLA supplied by a combination of organic borage and evening primrose. As opposed to capsules, this unique formula allows for easy and convenient dosing of high levels of GLA. GLA elongates rapidly in the body to DGLA which provides benefits for hormonal balance, immune system function (including allergic response), skin health and inflammatory disorders. Long term GLA monotherapy can decrease the mass of EPA in phospholipid pools with a simultaneous increase of the mass of AA. Concomitant supplementation of n-3 fatty acids, especially EPA, is known to limit desaturation of DGLA to AA and will help retain n-3 phospolipid stores.
