THE BEAUTY OF
HOW IT WORKS
Gamma-Linolenic Acid harnesses the health-promoting power of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) found in borage oil. Unlike omega-6-heavy oils common in processed foods, GLA from borage oil supports a healthy inflammatory response, female hormonal balance, and enhances skin and nail health.

WHAT IT DOES
Balancing omega-3 and omega-6 fats is crucial for various bodily functions. While the modern diet often contains an excess of omega-6 due to dietary changes, it's essential to note that omega-6 fats, like linoleic acid, are actually essential and not inherently harmful. GLA, a specialized type of omega-6 fat, offers specific benefits worth considering.
GLA is a precursor to DGLA, a compound supporting a healthy inflammatory response. Omega-3s and omega-6s play complex roles in inflammation, and GLA can be especially beneficial when factors like vitamin B6, biotin, thyroid function, and blood glucose levels affect the body's ability to convert linoleic acid into GLA efficiently.
Supplementing with GLA from borage oil provides unique health advantages, such as supporting a healthy inflammatory response, skin health and female hormonal balance.
