Life Extension Mega GLA (As Seen on TV) | Inflammation Reducing Supplement
TV Doctor Customers: This GLA supplement supplies 299mg per softgel. This omega-6 fatty acid is found in plant oils like evening primrose and black currant seed. It not only reduces inflammation, but also convinces fat cells to release excess fat. At the cellular level, GLA helps reduce the amount of inflammation in a given fat cell by not allowing it to suck in and store excess fat that creates bloating. Dr. Oz recommended two different doses. If you are looking to drop weight in a week, take 1000mg before your main meals for 1 week. For sustained weight loss, take around 800mg per day.

Omega-6 fatty acids are well-supplied in the diet by meat and vegetable oils. However, not all omega-6 fatty acids are of equal value. Arachidonic acid (AA) tends to be unhealthy because it is the precursor of inflammatory eicosanoids — such as prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane A2, and leukotriene B4 — which promote inflammation. In contrast, gamma-linolenic acid(GLA), found in evening primrose oil, borage oil, and black currant oil, is an important fatty acid that plays a beneficial role in healthy prostaglandin (PGE1) formation and pro-inflammatory mediator reduction.
Health-conscious people have been swallowing a lot of borage oil supplements to obtain GLA (gamma linolenic acid), the parent of the biologically active DGLA (dihomogamma linolenic acid).
Life Extension adds 10 mg of sesame lignans to each softgel of Mega GLA borage oil. Sesame lignans not only increase beneficial DGLA but they also prevent the conversion of GLA into the proinflammatory mediator arachidonic acid. 56 Blocking this pathway decreases the formation of destructive proinflammatory agents prostaglandin E2 and leukotriene B4. 57
Numerous studies document GLA’s multiple health effects. Enhancing this supplement with sesame lignans enables GLA to work much better in the body, allowing many more people with inflammatory-related problems to benefit from supplemental GLA.
