What is GLA?
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), the primary active component of SONOVA® GLA Safflower Oil, is an omega-6 fatty acid found in only a handful of plant-based oils, such as borage, evening primrose, black currant and now GLA safflower. It’s a fatty acid you’ll want to get to know––GLA is an essential component for your overall well-being.
Although the human body can produce GLA, aging and a number of dietary, wellness, and lifestyle factors may inhibit the body’s ability to produce enough GLA to achieve optimum health. As a result, supplementation with a good source of GLA goes a long way in restoring the balance of important fats our bodies need.
Studies have shown that GLA has significant health benefits when consumed regularly. GLA plays a beneficial role in such areas as women’s health, skin health and radiance, weight maintenance, and general well-being.
