DHA, LA, ALA, EPA, GLA, EFAs, Explained
The body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to 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 two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs).  Omega-3 fatty acids, found in coldwater fish (and fish oil), perilla and flaxseed oils, are essential elements of a healthy diet.  Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet.  The Western diet is filled with foods containing high amounts of omega-6 fats.  As a result, our bodies are bombarded with omega 6 fats creating an unhealthy imbalance.  EPA and DHA can be synthesized in the body from ALA, but EPA and DHA synthesis may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most people that consume Western diets.

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is a good or beneficial omega-6 fatty acid found in evening primrose, borage, and black currant oils and supports issues associated with PMS, eczema, sunburn, fibrocystic breast disease, arthritis, and diabetes.  The typical Western diet does not contain this beneficial omega 6 fatty acid.  GLA, along with EPA and DHA, for most part, has to be supplemented.  These essential fatty acids are important in manufacturing prostaglandins E1, E2, and E3 which are associated with pain and/or the lack thereof.  In fact, prostaglandin E1 is commonly associated with intermittent claudication, a painful, chronic, vascular condition caused by poor blood flow.

Note:  It is important to refrigerate flax seed, flaxseed, GLA borage oil, krill, EPA, and DHA supplements once once they are received.
