are EPA and DHA?
are two specific essential fatty acids found in fish oil. Both Eicosapentaenoic
Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) have been well documented
in regulating cellular functions and promoting good health. Diets
deficient in EPA and DHA have been associated with a number of health
problems, most notably cardiovascular disease.
is GLA and how is it different from other Omega-6 sources?
Linolenic Acid) is an Omega-6 fatty acid found in high amounts in
borage oil, and to a lesser degree in black currant and evening primrose
oils. In contrast to the sunflower, safflower and other Omega-6 oils,
the presence of GLA in borage oil results in very different physiological
effects. Linoleic acid in its current dietary excess promotes inflammation
due to the production of arachidonic acid (AA). GLA on the other hand,
actually interferes with the production of AA and decreases inflammation.
GLA has been used with success in treating various medical conditions,
most notably rheumatoid arthritis and eczema. Emerging science also
indicates that GLA has synergistic activities with the Omega-3 marine-derived
DHA and EPA, particularly in cardiovascular health and fat metabolism.
