Get the support of healthy omega-6 fatty acids and promote a healthy inflammatory response with our concentrated Mega GLA formula, which is enhanced with sesame lignans to boost effectiveness.
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is the precursor to the biologically active DGLA (dihomo-gamma linolenic acid), which has numerous health benefits. We’ve added sesame lignans to our formula to boost borage oil’s beneficial effects and inhibit GLA’s conversion into inflammatory factors like arachidonic acid, further supporting whole body health.
Enhancing our GLA supplement with sesame lignans enables GLA to work much better in the body, for greater health benefits.
Mega GLA Sesame Lignans Benefits
- Promotes a healthy inflammatory response
- Supports the formation of prostaglandin E1, Which promotes vascular health and more
- Encourages healthy levels of biologically active dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid
Getting the Right Omega-6
Not all omega-6 fatty acids are of equal value. Arachidonic acid (AA), for instance, is the precursor of inflammatory factors like prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane A2, and leukotriene B4. In contrast, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) plays a beneficial role in healthy prostaglandin (PGE1) formation and inhibiting inflammatory factors, both of which promote vascular as well as whole-body health.
Omega-6 fatty acids like linoleic acid are well-supplied in the diet by meat and vegetable oils. But some omega-6s can contribute to the production of inflammatory compounds such as prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane A2 and leukotriene B4 (LTB4).
GLA and omega 6 fatty acids
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from borage oil, on the other hand, helps inhibit inflammatory compounds and promotes healthy prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) levels, both of which promote whole body health.
Borage oil supplements are an excellent way to obtain GLA.5 GLA is the precursor to the biologically active dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA), which may provide optimal health benefits. And our Mega GLA supplement provides 400 mg of concentrated GLA from borage oil per softgel.
Augmented with sesame lignans
We’ve added 10 mg of sesame lignan extract to each softgel to help promote healthy levels of beneficial DGLA. Sesame lignans help inhibit the conversion of GLA into inflammatory arachidonic acid. This, in turn, inhibits the formation of other inflammatory compounds like PGE2 and LTB4 in order to support whole body health.
Choose the right GLA supplement
Numerous studies document GLA’s multiple health effects. Enhancing this supplement with sesame lignans enables GLA to work much better in the body, increasing the benefit of supplemental GLA.
