Healthy Inside AND Out
GLA is needed to maintain normal function and development of cells––and that includes your skin cells. Studies have shown that, in the absence of GLA and other essential fatty acids, our skin becomes dry, scaly and irritated. That’s because GLA plays an important role in maintaining proper cell structure, barrier maintenance and recovery, and decreasing water loss. Since your skin cannot produce its own GLA, it must be provided elsewhere.
Taking GLA-enriched capsules and applying GLA-enriched creams and ointments can renew normal skin function, improve skin comfort, and help to promote healthy, moist supple skin.
Other potential benefits from a rich source of GLA include:
- Soothing and moisturizing dry skin
- Combating wrinkles
- Reducing skin redness
- Nourishing hair
- Strengthening nails
