Douglas Laboratories’ Ultra G.L.A. is an excellent source of the important gamma linolenic acid (GLA) providing 240 mg of GLA per softgel. Douglas Lab’s Ultra G.L.A. softgels are manufactured using only 100% vegetable oil from borage seeds (Borago officinalis), with 10 I.U.s of natural vitamin E for antioxidant protection. The oil is cold-processed and handled carefully to avoid any oxidation.
Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated omega-6 linoleic and arachidonic acids. Dietary linoleic acid (18:2 omega-6) is a precursor to arachidonic acid (20:4) which in turn is a precursor for pro-inflammatory immune mediators, the 2-series prostaglandins, thromboxanes and leukotrienes. Although GLA is a precursor of arachidonic acid, it also competes with arachidonic acid effectively, and may help downregulate the formation of excessive levels of pro-inflammatory 2- series prostaglandins and other immune mediators.
