This synergy of organic evening primrose and borage oil is appreciated for its richness in gamma-linolenic acid. This polyunsaturated fatty acid of the omega-6 family has properties for the skin, hormonal balance and acts on the modulation of the immune system (autoimmune diseases). GLA, detailed in numerous scientific journals, promotes the synthesis of type 1 prostaglandins (anti-inflammatory) to the detriment of type 2 prostaglandins (pro-inflammatory). The anti-inflammatory actions are mainly recognised in hormonal disorders, such as premenstrual syndrome, menopausal discomfort, reduction of acne and help in case of eczema. GLA has been clinically studied in other inflammatory conditions such as osteoporosis and in reducing the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis with a daily GLA intake of 480mg (7 capsules)[6-7]. Finally, the administration of evening primrose and borage oils rich in gamma-linolenic acid to asthmatic patients inhibits the formation of pro-inflammatory leukotrienes [8-9].
