An excellent source of GLA for dogs
The Evening Primrose flower is a rich source of the omega-6 fatty acid known as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). It has been shown that the presence of GLA in a dog’s diet can help support heart health and hormonal balance as well as the condition of the skin and coat.
Supports a healthy inflammatory response
Many studies have investigated how GLA helps to support a normal inflammatory response in the body. It is through this mechanism that GLA can support the heart and the skin. This is not just limited to the skin though, as it aids the appearance of a normal, glossy coat.
GLA is known to support the production of compounds called prostaglandins within the body. This is believed to have the effect of controlling levels of reproductive hormones which can support normal behaviour.
SUPPORTS HEART HEALTH AND CIRCULATION – The natural oils that are pressed from the seeds of the Evening Primrose flower provide a rich source of the omega-6 fatty acid known as Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is thought to support normal heart function and circulation.
CONTRIBUTES TO HORMONAL REGULATION – GLA also aids the normal synthesis of a group of compounds known as prostaglandins. It has been suggested that this may in turn help to regulate levels of reproductive hormones, supporting normal behaviour.
SUPPORTS THE HEALTH OF THE SKIN – Evening Primrose Oil and GLA have also been studied for their contribution to the condition of the skin and coat.
