GLA is considered to be the only “GOOD” Omega – 6 polyunsaturated fatty acid, which is essential to our body. It is almost completely and very rapidly converted to dihomogamma linolenic acid (DGLA), which undergoes further metabolism to produce important prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) to effectively inhibit inflammation in the body. Studies have shown that GLA has significant health benefits when consumed regularly.

Made in Japan
|What is the active ingredient of GLAGOLD® ?
|Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is the main active ingredient of GLAGOLD®. Each capsule contains 50 mg of GLA.
|Why is GLAGOLD® the highest GLA supplement in the worldwide market?
|With advance fermentation technology, GLAGOLD® contains the highest GLA-rich oil extracted from fungi. (suitable for kidney and diabetes patients).
|What makes GLAGOLD® more superior to other ordinary Omega-6 supplements and offers optimum benefits when consume at a high dose?
|The Omega-6 fatty acids family includes LA, AA, GLA and DGLA. Scientific research shows consuming too much LA and AA, which are called the "Bad" Omega-6s, can cause unhealthy inflammation in our body. However, there are “Good” Omega-6s (such as GLA and DGLA) that can produce anti-inflammatory effects and provide important health benefits. The readily available Omega-6 supplements like Evening Primrose Oil, Borage Oil and Black Currant Oil have limitations with its use and are not suitable for long-term intake due to their high LA and low GLA content ratio. With the high GLA/ low LA contents, GLAGOLD® is a breakthrough among GLA supplements.
|How to use GLAGOLD® ?
|For improvement: 5 - 6 caps/day; For health maintenance: 3 - 4 caps/day.
For better absorption, take after meal and separate the dosage into 2-3 times a day. GLAGOLD® is a health supplement providing long-term protection of certain health conditions.
|Can GLAGOLD® be administered with medication? Is it safe for long-term use?
|Certainly. GLAGOLD® is not a drug and does not have drug contraindication, and will not cause any side effects. Many scientific researches have confirmed the health benefits of functional polyunsaturated fatty acids for our immune system and cell bioactivity. Directly supplement GLA can bypass the rate-limiting enzymatic activity in our body and thereby to ensure sufficient amount of GLA to protect against chronic diseases. In Japan, GLAGOLD® has been widely administered as an adjunct to various clinical treatments on various chronic diseases for over 20 years. With this long-term clinical evidence, GLAGOLD® is confirmed effective and safe.
