Ultra G.L.A. (Borage Oil) (60)

Availability: Out of stock

$36.10
Ultra G.L.A. supplies important gamma linolenic acid (GLA), providing 240 mg of GLA per softgel. Ultra G.L.A. softgels are manufactured using only 100% vegetable oil from borage seeds (Borago officinalis), with 10 IUs of natural vitamin E for antioxidant protection. The oil is cold-processed and handled carefully to avoid any oxidation.

Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated omega-6 linoleic and arachidonic acids. Dietary linoleic acid (18:2 omega-6) is a precursor to arachidonic acid (20:4) which in turn is a precursor for pro-inflammatory immune mediators, the 2-series prostaglandins, thromboxanes and leukotrienes. Although GLA is a precursor of arachidonic acid, it also competes with arachidonic acid effectively, and may help downregulate the formation of excessive levels of pro-inflammatory 2-series prostaglandins and other immune mediators.
