Metabolic Maintenance GLA-240 (as borage oil) 180c has the highest GLA (gamma-linoleic acid-omega 6) content, 22%, of any readily available seed oil and is also a convenient source of linoleic acid. Research has shown that borage oil´s medicinal effects can be traced to its rich stores of a therapeutic fat gamma linoleic acid (GLA). Once processed by the body, GLA is converted into hormone-like substances that can either block inflammation or promote it. In borage oil, the GLA seems to calm inflammation overall, making it an attractive treatment option for arthritis, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstruation, endometriosis and fibrocystic breasts. Each capsule provides: GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) 170-250 mg and LA (linoleic acid) 260-400 mg.
