Gla-240 (Borage)

GLA-240 is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an "activated" fatty acid found in evening primrose oil and in more concentrated form in borage oil. Extensive scientific research shows that GLA supplementation favorably modulates the body's balance of eicosanoids, local cellular "hormones" which regulate inflammation, thrombosis (abnormal blood clotting), and immune function. Eicosanoid imbalances are involved in many of the symptoms of menopause and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
