AOR GLA-240 Details

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Relieves pressure in joints and blood vessels
  • Relieves symptoms of premenstrual syndrome
  • Reduces symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis

GLA-240™ is organic borage oil, a richer source of the omega-6 essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), than evening primrose oil.

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid produced in the body from linoleic acid (LA), an essential fatty acid. Although a large imbalance of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is thought to cause inflammation, supplementation with GLA has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects. One study found that GLA reduced inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and GLA has been traditionally used for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema. GLA has also been demonstrated to improve post-viral fatigue syndrome, mastalgia and diabetic neuropathy, and is thought to provide support during symptoms of PMS and menopause. 
Although evening primrose oil is the most well-known source of GLA, AOR’s GLA-240 is sourced from organic borage oil, because borage contains 2-3 times more GLA than evening primrose oil. This means that each capsule is more cost effective, and fewer capsules need to be consumed in order to get the same amount of GLA. 
GLA is most beneficial for those looking for a healthy, organic source of supplemental essential omega-6 fatty acids and for those who have been prescribed evening primrose oil. It may also benefit those with rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema.
