AOR GLA 240, 90 Softgels
A Nourishing Omega-6 for Beautiful Skin
- Beneficial for inflammatory skin conditions
- Also supports healthy hormone balance
- Provides organic borage oil
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid produced in the body from linoleic acid (LA), an essential fatty acid. Although evening primrose oil is the most well-known source of GLA, AOR’s GLA-240 is sourced from organic borage oil, because borage contains 2-3 times more GLA than evening primrose oil. This means that each capsule is more cost effective, and fewer capsules need to be consumed in order to get the same amount of GLA.
Although a large imbalance of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is thought to cause inflammation, supplementation with GLA has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects. One study found that GLA reduced inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and GLA has been traditionally used for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema.
