Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) Helping Maintain and Regulate Healthy Body Function

Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is an important Omega Fatty Acid that plays many roles within the body including: hormone regulation, anti-inflammation signaling, bone health regulation, tear formation, cardiovascular and weight management and maintenance of skin, hair and nail health. A Lack of sufficient GLA can cause problems related to these functions.

GLA Deficiency, A Key Factor in Women's Health

In women, a  deficiency in synthesis of GLA is the suggested cause of many symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome, mastalgia and menopause.  Research has found that during these times the measurable levels of GLA are significantly lower than usual. This could be due to the reduced activity of particular enzymes needed to make GLA.
