    GLA Borage Oil - 30 SoftGels

    Allergy Research Group GLA Borage Oil

    This softgel formulation provides a high potency gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from borage oil. GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid and is considered a nutrient and semi-essential fatty acid. Borage oil is pressed from the seeds of the borage plant Borago officinalis, and contains the highest known concentration of the omega-6 fatty acid GLA. It is also a significant source of essential linoleic acid (LA), also an omega-6 fatty acid.

    • GLA is a precursor to prostaglandin E1, an eicosanoid with balancing and immune-supporting properties.*
    • Borage oil is the premier source of high potency GLA.*
    • Extracted, processed, and purified without trans-isomer formation

    More Info

    GLA is a precursor for key prostaglandins, including prostaglandin E1, an eicosanoid with balancing and immune-supporting properties.*

    The human body is made up of approximately 100 trillion cells, each contained by membranes on which the majority of the work of the cells occurs. The essential fatty acid (EFA) makeup of these cell membranes strongly influences their structure and function. Optimal EFA balance in the membranes helps optimize the approximately 100,000 chemical reactions that together make up our metabolism.* The EFAs are also essential metabolic starting points for the production of substances called prostaglandins (PG). These are hormone-like messenger substances important for the optimal functioning and homeostatic balance of all the organ systems.* The omega-6 essential fatty acids are required in substantial quantities, at a minimum of 7% to 10% of the total calories that we consume daily.
