Borage oil and its component, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), have been shown to maintain blood pressure health by acting as a vasodilator.
GLA-240 provides borage seed oil, the highest concentration (26%) of any botanical source of a rare fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid.
GLA is the precursor of the 1-series prostaglandins, which have broad and important regulatory activities in the body, notably the modulation of production of 2-series prostanoids, which are pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic mediators.
GLA is normally a product of a desaturation enzyme (D6D) which declines in activity with aging and ill-health, but is overcome by exogenous sources of GLA that re-establish normal levels of 1-series prostaglandins.
