Black Currant Oil is a rich source of gamma linolenic acid,
GLA, along with other important polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Fatty acids are involved in many body functions, such as
maintaining body temperature, insulating nerves, cushioning
and protecting tissues and creating energy.
These essential fatty acids are precursors of prostaglandins,
which must be present for functions involved with dilating
blood vessels, regulating arterial pressure, metabolizing
cholesterol, activating T-lymphocytes, pretecting agtainst
platelet aggregation, controlling abnormal cell proliferation,
and other functions.
