GLA/Omega 6 Rich Oils

One of the oils found in evening primrose and starflower seeds is Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is a fatty acid needed by the body for the production of certain hormones including the hormone like substance prostaglandin PGE1. PGE1 takes part in regulating the nervous, cardiovascular and reproductive systems, skin condition and other biological functions. Consequently, practitioners frequently recommend GLA to those:
  • At the time of their period
  • Going through the menopause
  • Concerned with the condition of their skin

Whilst the body can produce GLA from the conversion of the parent fatty acid of the omega-6 family, linleic acid, the conversion isn't always very efficient, so a dietary source of GLA can be useful
