Gamma Linolenic Acid

Research, Benefits and Cautions.

Studies have shown that Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid, is effective in killing cancer cells and is well-established as a topical treatment for some types of cancer, such as bladder cancer. Also, it has been shown to kill various other types of cancer cells. Additional research has suggested that GLA-containing essential fatty acids taken from evening primrose, blackcurrant and borage seed oils are effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis. A deficiency of GLA may cause eczema. A supplement may be required for those whose fat and oil intake is significantly restricted. Some chemicals that are found in this supplement include: fatty acids found in: evening primrose (a plant), fish, human mother's milk, and spirulina (blue-green algae).
