Super GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) /DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
1000 mg, 180 softgels

Fatty acids are essential for life.  Besides storing energy, these fats are part of our makeup; they live in our healthy cells, muscles, nerves, and organs.  Conversely, there are bad fats that must be controlled or avoided to maintain benefits for optimum health.

The good fats are unsaturated fats that are usually from oils of vegetables, nuts, and some fish.  Since they cannot be produced within the body, our diets must be EFA (essential fatty acid) rich.  Bad fats are saturated fats, typically from animal fats, dairy products, avocados, etc.  Without adequate levels of good fats, dangerous saturated fats will replace the essential fatty acids in our cells (the situation in most western diets).

Omega-6 fatty acids are well supplied in the diet by meat and vegetable oils. However, not all omega-6 fatty acids are of equal value.  Gamma linolenic acid (GLA), found in evening primrose oil, borage oil, and black currant oil is an important fatty acid that plays a beneficial role in healthy prostaglandin formation.  What you eat also contributes to the production of inflammatory cytokines.  Eating foods cooked at high temperature can cause the formation of advanced glycation end (AGE) products.  Glycation is the binding of a protein molecule to a glucose molecule that results in the formation of damaged protein structures.  As the damaged proteins accumulate, they activate the production of inflammatory cytokines.  Presently there is no way to reverse the effects of glycation.

Supplementation with the right proportions of essential fatty acids support optimum healthy lifestyles.  In addition to avoiding saturated fats and high glycemic foods that contribute to chronic inflammation, eating omega-3 foods such as cold water fish and consuming supplements that provide GLA and DHA can balance essential fatty acids for optimum health benefits.

The essential fatty acids in Super GLA (gamma-linolenic acid -- omega 6, the good kind) DHA (docosahexaenoic acid - omega 3) essential fatty acids supplements have been concentrated and standardized in order to ensure quality, and potency.

As recommended by Dr. Udo Erasmus, the author of several books on fatty acids, states "In the beginning, you may want to start with smaller amounts and gradually increase to optimum levels which is approximately 1 tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight; especially if you have a history of being on a low fat or a no fat diet, or if your liver is weak."  and, he continues "We should use oils rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fats (2:1 ratio) and should be made and stored under protection from light, oxygen and heat.  I have found that about 15ml per 25 kg of body weight (about one tablespoon for 50 lbs) is ideal, but as little as 5-10 ml per day has health benefits."

One tablespoon equates to about 9 capsules per day (preferably in divided doses -- 3/3/3).  You can mix the oil in protein shakes, salads, pancakes, fruit smoothies, etc.  The possibilities are endless.
