Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is the precursor of both Dihomogamma Linolenic Acid (DGLA), an anti-inflammatory fatty acid, and Arachidonic Acid (AA), a pro-inflammatory fatty acid. It can be produced in human tissues by action of desaturase enzymes on LA. DGLA is anti-inflammatory, so an insufficiency of this fatty acid impairs a wide range of cellular functions and tissue responses.
