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 reprodcutive systems, skin condition and other biological functions. Whilst the body can make GLA from Linolenic acid (the omega 6 fatty acid present in vegetable oils) this conversion is sometimes slow or partially blocked. Hence, a dietary source of GLA can be very useful to the body in bypassing the conversion process, and numerous clinical trials have established that GLA supplements can be effective in certain situations.

Lamberts starflower oil is an ideal supplement where a high GLA intake is required or as a good alternative for those already taking a lot of Evening Primrose Oil.
