Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an unusual omega-6 fatty acid with powerful implications for human health. Adequate GLA is required to maintain a healthy balance of anti-inflammatory signaling molecules in the body.

The enzyme that produces GLA from dietary fats decreases in activity with aging and in certain chronic conditions. Increasing GLA intake overcomes this deficiency and can restore a healthy balance to suppress chronic inflammation.

GLA also may help to prevent inflammation-related changes implicated in the development of atherosclerosis and cancer. GLA has proven benefits in inflammatory diseases such as eczema, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis.
