Essential Fatty Acids From Borage Seed Oil

Source Naturals' Mega GLA 300 mg provides gamma linolenic acid (GLA) from borage seed oil to support general health and wellbeing.

An essential fatty acid, GLA has to be consumed, as our bodies cannot produce it. And it is found in high quantities in borage seed oil.

Our body needs both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids for brain function and normal growth and development.

GLA may also play a role in healthy skin and hair growth, support reproductive health, help maintain bone health, and regulate metabolism.

Basically, your body uses GLA as the building block to produce and store energy.

And all essential fatty acids help produce cellular membranes and act as "gate-keepers" for our cells.

Having healthy cell membranes are crucial, as cells have to be able to take in the proper nutrients and keep out metabolic toxins.

Essential fatty acids maintain the fluidity and permeability of our cellular membranes, promoting nutrient absorption.

And as our brains contain a high percentage of fatty tissue, essential fatty acids also promote healthy brain function.

Another most important role for fatty acids is the production of hormone-like substances that regulate such metabolic processes as

  • Blood pressure balance
  • Smooth muscle contraction
  • Proper blood clotting
  • Blood vessel flexibility
  • Immune system regulation

The precursor to GLA, linoleic acid, is found in a variety of foods, but converting it to GLA and to prostaglandins is difficult.

Prostaglandins are hormones your body uses to regulate certain internal processes in your body.

Produced from the fats you ingest, prostaglandins can either promote those responses or inhibit them.

There are many roadblocks along the way to converting fatty acids, including the consumption of alcohol, saturated fats, trans-fatty acids, and the normal aging process.

So, Mega GLA 300 mg provides a good way to take a dietary shortcut and help produce the crucial GLA and prostaglandins your body needs.
