How Does GLA Boost My Health and Fight Inflammation?
Gamma linolenic acid is synthesized in your body from linoleic acid, the latter being available from most cooking oils and meats. However, this biosynthesis can be ineffective in many people due to illness, aging or dietary deficiencies, and a supplement is necessary. Because a GLA supplement is so easy to take, many do so to ensure an adequate intake.
Supplements are easy to take in capsule form, and GLA is a fatty acid necessary for normal brain function, to enable your metabolism to progress normally and to ensure healthy growth of skin, hair and bones among many other functions, so you don't want to be short of it.
GLA can also be used to fight inflammation, such as the swelling and pain of arthritis and skin eruptions in conditions such as acne. These are inflammatory conditions brought about by the response of your immune system to damage to body tissues and joints such as in arthritis, or infection by bacteria such as in acne and many other inflammatory skin conditions including dermatitis.
It is particularly said to be effective with rheumatoid arthritis, and a combination of GLA (Omega-6 oil) and EPA (Omega-3 fish oil) is more effective together than either individually. Both GLA and EPA are available individually or combined as a supplement in capsule form.

GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) is an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid. It is used to produce the soothing intracellular hormonelike messengers known as series 1 prostaglandins (PGE1), which help maintain the balance of many functions in the body. GLA supports the immune system and helps maintain healthy skin and circulation. This essential nutrient is incorporated into our cell membranes, where it helps to maintain fluidity and permeability. Borage seed oil is one of the richest sources of GLA.
