GLA Complex


GLA is used by many women to maintain a sense of well-being throughout their monthly cycle. This Shaklee formula contains GLA (gamma linolenic acid), an omega-6 fatty acid that our bodies use to form prostaglandins—potent, hormone-like substances that help the body to regulate many normal bodily processes.*


Most GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) available in the market is produced from Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), whereas Shaklee’s GLA is extracted from borage which is twice higher than EPO. Borage’s bioavailability is triple and effectiveness is twice higher than EPO. Shaklee extracts GLO from borage that is organically grown in the district of Saskatchewan.

Each capsule provides more than 300mg of GLA, it is the best source of Omega6, it is combined with sunflower oil and vitamin E to increase its potency and stability. The freshness and potency are protected by Shaklee Guard, a patented natural anti-oxidant that assure efficacy, stabilities and freshness. Clinically proven its bioavailability can be absorbed and blend by cells and tissue.
