Significance of GLA
The rate limiting enzyme‚ Delta 6 Desaturase‚ is essential for the conversion of Linoleic Acid to GLA.
As various factors can impair this enzyme (i.e.‚ alcohol‚ viruses‚ saturated and trans-fatty acids‚ nutrient deficiency‚ genetic factors)‚ synthesis of beneficial eicosanoids (PG1) may be suppressed. With GLA supplementation‚ Delta 6 Desaturase is no longer required as beneficial series one eicosanoids (PG1) are formed directly with GLA as the precursor.
