How It Works
Super GLA provides generous amounts of essential Omega-6 fatty acids (both linoleic and gamma-linolenic acid) from evening primrose, black currant and borage oils.
This group of hormone-like compounds regulate many important bodily functions and processes. These include maintaining blood pressure and platelet aggregation levels that are already within normal ranges, supporting immunity, and regulating gastric secretions and hormonal responses to nerve impulses.
In addition, eicosanoids play a role in increasing lean muscle mass and decreasing body fat. Three important eicosanoids are prostaglandins, thromboxanes and leukotrienes.
