Evening primrose oil is a rich natural source of the omega-6 fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA), and fish oil is a rich source of the omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA.
Fatty acids are incorporated into every cell membrane in the body in the form of compounds called phospholipids. Cell membranes play the vital role of regulating what goes into, and what comes out of, each cell. For example, when a cell membrane is functioning optimally, it retains vital nutrients and electrolytes, has the ability to communicate with other cells, and is responsive to hormones.
The types of phospholipids present in the body influence the integrity and fluidity of the cell membranes. Cell membranes that are predominantly comprised of phospholipids from essential fatty acids such as those found in Blackmores Evening Primrose Oil + Fish Oil function more effectively than those derived from saturated fats or trans fatty acids.
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids like those found in Blackmores Evening Primrose Oil + Fish Oil are also used in the production of leukotrienes and prostaglandins - compounds that are important in the body’s processes for dealing with inflammation and swelling in the joints, skin and other tissues. In this way, they support the healthy functioning, flexibility and mobility of the joints, and help maintain healthy skin. They also play a role in healthy immunity and muscle function.
Fish oil also supports a healthy cardiovascular system by helping to maintain appropriate levels of triglycerides (fats) in the blood, and by helping to maintain appropriate blood viscosity (thickness).
