The body needs fatty acids to survive and can make all but two of them; linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family. These must be supplied by the diet and are thus considered essential fatty acids (EFAs), and these can be ingested by taking mega GLA with sesame lignans softgels dietary supplements.
There is a good supply of omega-6 fatty acids in the Western diet from meat and vegetable oils. However not all omega-6 fatty acids are of equal nutritional value. Arachidonic acid (AA) tends to be unhealthy because it is the precursor of inflammatory eicosanoids, which promote inflammation. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), on the other hand, found in evening primrose, borage and blackcurrant oils, makes a beneficial contribution to healthy prostaglandin (PGE1) formation and pro-inflammatory mediator reduction. It is this GLA that is contained within the GLA softgels that can help to decrease inflammation and promote all-round good health.
Many health-conscious people have been taking borage oil supplements to increase their levels of GLA (gammalinolenic acid), the `parent´ of the biologically active DGLA (dihomogamma linolenic acid). Life Extension adds 10 mg of sesame lignans to each softgel of borage oil to both increase beneficial DGLA and at the same time impede the conversion of GLA into pro-inflammatory mediator arachidonic acid. It is thus a wonderfully effective natural ant-inflammatory.
