Gamma Linolenic (Genova)

Genova Diagnostics

A healthy result should fall into the range 5 - 46 µmol/L.

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.

It is found in hemp, borage, black currant, and evening primrose oils. GLA corrects most of the biological effects of zinc deficiency.
