What is Super GLA?
Super GLA by Solgar is a product based on Borage Oil, a type of vegetable oil that is very interesting for our health because of its great content 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 large quantities in higher animals and in human organism.
What are the properties of Super GLA?
The GLA is considered a precursor of prostaglandins series 1 (prostaglandins series 2 have antagonistic properties to those of the series 1). Prostaglandins derived from GLA have a strong antiaggregation affect of blood platelets, as well as a vasodilatory action of the microvessels of the circulatory system. In addition, GLA plays an important role as a natural anti-inflammatory.
The GLA, therefore is ideal for preventing and/or treating cardiovascular disorders. Due to its action on female hormones it is used as a treatment for premenstrual syndrome, and reduces or mitigates the symptoms of menopause, and its emollient and eudermic effect, to keep skin in a good condition.
