Radiance Evening Primrose Beauty. What a unique formula!
The New Zealand made supplement Evening Primrose Beauty, with New Zealand grown ingredients, to supply the body with a natural source of the omega 6 fatty acid, gamma linolenic acid (GLA).
The lipid layer of our skin is reliant on adequate amounts of linoleic acid, which is made when omega 6 fatty acid is consumed and converted by the enzyme delta-6-desaturase into gamma linolenic acid or GLA.
This process should be simple, however many peoples bodys are impaired in completing this action, due to problems such as thyroid dysfunction, viral infections, blood sugar problems, menopause, aging and poor diets - resulting in low levels of GLA in the skin and a poorly functioning skin lipid barrier.
The lipid barrier helps shield the layer of skin called the stratum corneum, promoting a protective shield against the entry of bacteria, allergens, chemicals and UV light from the environment.
By taking a supplement rich in gamma linolenic acid or GLA, you by-pass the need for conversion, and thereby are providing the raw ingredients to support a strong healthy lipid skin barrier.
Symptoms of low levels of gamma linolenic acid or GLA in the body
Low levels of GLA can result in problems such as skin that appears dull and dehydrated. Long term skin that is dehydrated becomes visibly rough, dry and flaky and becomes prone to the accelerated development of fine lines and wrinkles. Other signs could be that skin becomes overly sensitive and reactive, even red, irritated and itchy.
