Product information "Dihomo-gamma-Linolenic Acid ethyl ester"
Dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA) is a metabolite produced by chain elongation of the essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid. Ethyl DGLA is an esterified version of the free acid which is less water soluble, but more amenable for the formulation of DGLA-containing diets and dietary supplements. DGLA has been advanced as a possible treatment for various inflammatory disorders. Evening primrose oil is a DGLA-rich nutraceutical which has been advocated for such uses.
