Now comes an entry that is more educated compare to just the usual entries-'blabbering of a mom of 3'. hehhehe.. ( Ms D asked me about GLA the other day. So, here goes..)
Gamma Linolenic Aid, or GLA in short. It is an essential fatty acid, found primarily in borage seed oil, evening primrose oil or blackcurrant seed oil. Essentials fatty acids (EFA) are a group of fatty acids that is needed by the body, but could not be produce (in the body). It has to be taken from food.
I will just give a short info about it, rather than go into all the medical jargon of GLA.
Researches found that GLA has an anti-inflamatory properties. If taken regularly, it will combat all the illness that is caused by inflammatory response, such as, PMS, arthritis, autoimmune diseases or eczema.
GLA is sold here as a dietary supplement, in a capsules form.
