What is Super GLA?
Super GLA by Solgar is a food supplement in softgels made from Borage Oil, a type of vegetable oil that is quite interesting for our health because it is rich in polyunsaturated fats. Borage Oil is rich in a very limited fatty acid in the plant kingdom called Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). However, we can find it in higher quantities in animals and in the human body.
What are the properties of Super GLA?
The GLA is a precursor of series-1 prostaglandins (series-2 prostaglandins have antagonistic properties to the series-1). Prostaglandins from GLA have a strong anti-aggregating effect on blood platelets, as well as a vasodilating effect on the micro-vessels of the circulatory system. In addition, GLA plays an important role as a natural anti-inflammatory.
Therefore, GLA is ideal for preventing and/or treating cardiovascular disorders. Due to its effect on female hormones it is used to treat the premenstrual syndrome, reducing or relieving the symptoms of menopause, as well as producing an emollient and eudermic effect to preserve the skin.
Moreover, GLA contributes to preserve the structure and elasticity of skin cells. It plays an important role in the rejuvenation of the skin, keeping it flexible, improving the skin barrier of the elderly and preserving the transepidermal water balance.
Who can benefit from taking Super GLA?
- Those who want to enrich their diet with vegetable Omega-6 essential fatty acids.
- Women who want to treat the symptoms of the menstrual syndrome or menopause.
