Primrose – primrose oil
Primrose oil containing gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). For the body to function properly two essential fatty acids must have available, i.e. linoleic acid (LA), family of omega-6 and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) of the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids should be supplied by diet and therefore are considered essential unsaturated fatty acids (EFAs). However, not all omega-6 fatty acids have equal value. Arachidonic acid (AA) is not the best solution because it is a precursor of inflammatory eicosanoids - such as prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane A2 and leukotriene B4 - which promote inflammation. In contrast, it is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), found in Primrose Oil, Borage Oil and Black Currant Oil, is an important fatty acid that plays a beneficial role in the formation of beneficial prostaglandins (PGE1). Primrose Oil from Jarrow Formulas® contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is an active ingredient, and is recommended for regulatory purposes.
