Karuna GLA-240 90sg

SKU: KR0011
Karuna GLA-240 90sg is a cold-pressed, organically grown, hexane-free borage oil. Borage oil and its component, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), have been shown to lower blood pressure by acting as a vasodilator. GLA-240 provides borage seed oil, the highest concentration (26%) of any botanical source of a rare fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid. GLA is the precursor of the 1-series prostaglandins, which have broad and important regulatory activities in the body, notably the modulation of production of 2-series prostanoids, which are pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic mediators. GLA is normally a product of a desaturation enzyme (D6D) which declines in activity with aging and ill-health, but is overcome by exogenous sources of GLA that re-establish normal levels of 1-series prostaglandins.
