Research from the 1930's has established a tendency in some populations to exhibit a deficit of omega 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs), including gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Essential indicates the need for those nutrients such as EFAs since only plants have the productive ability to produce EFAs.
Fatty acids are essential for life. EPO has a high content of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), an important Omega 6 essential fatty acid. GLA is vital for skin, brain, immune health and for hormonal regulation. It has been shown to promote blood circulation, improve fatty acid balance, and support a healthy inflammation response.
