  • Omega-3 fatty acids get a lot of attention due to their many beneficial effects‚ but there’s another type of fatty acid that’s important for your health too. Omega-6 fatty acids share many of the same qualities as omega-3s: they support brain function and healthy development‚ help your bones remain strong‚ regulate how your body uses nutrients‚ promote healthy skin and hair‚ and keep your reproductive system working properly.

    Some omega-6 fatty acids have a bad reputation because they can lead to inflammation. However‚ one form of omega-6s called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) does the opposite: it actually helps reduce inflammation. Your body produces GLA from a type of omega-6 fatty acid called linolenic acid‚ which is found in vegetable oils. You can get this omega-6 fatty acid in your diet by cooking with safflower oil and sunflower oil. You can also boost GLA’s ability to fight inflammation by getting plenty of nutrients like zinc‚ vitamin C‚ and magnesium in your diet. If you aren’t getting enough from the foods you eat‚ a supplement can make up for it.

    Designs for Health’s GLA 240 Gamma-Linolenic provides your body with a healthy dose of GLA‚ which is the only active ingredient in this product. The GLA in this supplement comes from the seeds of the borage herb. This is the healthier method of getting GLA‚ since the vegetable oils that it usually comes from contain fats that could raise your risk of disease. Each softgel gives you 240 mg of GLA to keep your skin healthy‚ relieve inflammation‚ and promote hormone balance in women. It may also help protect you from autoimmune diseases that cause your body to mistakenly destroy its own cells.

    One bottle of GLA 240 Gamma-Linolenic by Designs for Health contains 60 softgels‚ which should last between 20 and 60 days‚ depending on your dosage. You should take one to three softgels daily with food.

    Designs for Health was founded in 1989 by a team of clinical nutritionists‚ and puts science first when creating products and formulas. Ever since then‚ the company has focused on manufacturing dietary supplements that contain quality‚ natural ingredients at effective dosages. It strives to provide the best products for health care professionals and patients.
