GLA is a "Very" Essential Fat
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 Eases Cramps and Breast Pain
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.* Just before menstruation a cascade of prostaglandins are initiated in the uterus which causes the constriction of blood vessels and contractions that cause pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, bloating and headaches that coincide with PMS. There are good prostaglandins and bad prostaglandins. Painful menstruation and breast pain are caused by low levels of good anti-inflammatory prostaglandins which are made from GLA.*
GLA, Menopause and Skin
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.*
GLA and Skin Health
GLA is a component of healthy skin. GLA helps to maintain the stability and fluidity of the natural water loss barrier in our skin.* Skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, cradle cap, acne and dry skin occur. GLA is vital for keeping skin cells moist and strong improving the barrier function of the skin.*
GLA has also been found to inhibit male hormones in the skin that cause acne.* GLA can be taken both internally and applied externally to acne prone areas with excellent results.*
