Fatty acids are good fats for optimal health.* To make matters worse when an enzyme in the body is impaired we can't make the good fats GLA, EPA or DHA. We can overcome this problem by eating fish or fish oils that contain EPA and DHA but when it comes to GLA the only way to get this important fatty acid is to take it in a nutritional supplement. GLA (gamma linolenic acid) is found in borage oil (20 to 24%) and to a lesser extent evening primrose oil (8 to 10%). GLA is not found in food in high enough quantities to maintain our needs through diet alone.

GLA (From organic Candian borage seeds)
GLA deficiency is a major cause of PMS. A healthy body creates GLA via an enzyme from fats such as sunflower oil into prostaglandins, which are hormone-like compounds that regulate blood clotting, inflammation and muscle contraction.
In women who have gone through menopause, the enzyme that converts food into GLA becomes impaired. GLA is a major component of beautiful skin. GLA makes your skin luminescent, dewy and glowing. The main reason our skin becomes dull and thick after menopause is due to the inability to make GLA.* After menopause it is essential that we take a daily dose of GLA to ensure beautiful skin.* As we age GLA can reduce inflammation in the skin associated with wrinkled skin.* Without sufficient GLA the skin becomes dry, rough and wrinkled. GLA is the beautiful skin oil.*
Adults (12 years and older): Take 1 to 4 softgels per day.
