EPA/GLA Softgels contain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, as well as GLA.
Good fats, or Omega-3 fatty acids as they are known, are essential fatty acids. They are called essential as the body is not able to make it on its own. EPA/GLA consists of the most important types of Omega 3 EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). These are commonly found in oily fish such as sardines, mackerel and salmon. GLA (Gamma-linolenic Acid), which is also found in this formula, is derived from borage seed oil. Borage, also known as starflower, is an herb commonly found in Asia, North Africa and Europe. It has been used since ancient times in traditional medicine and is a rich source of fatty acids. This formula also includes vitamin E which can help protect cells against oxidative stress.
EPA/GLA provides the body with this trio of essential fatty acids, taken as 1 softgel a day.
