Holland & Barrett's Cod Liver Oil is high in omega 3 fatty acids and provides an excellent source of vitamins A and D.
- Both Vitamins A and D contribute to the normal function of the immune system
- Vitamin A also contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, whilst Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and muscle function.
Evening Primrose Oil provides the fatty acids Linoleic Acid (LA) and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Not all fatty acids can be made in the body so must be supplied through diet or supplementation.
Within the body Linoleic Acid is metabolised to GLA, which is essential for the production of certain hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Human breast milk is one of the richest natural sources of GLA, whilst LA can be found in safflower, hemp and sunflower oils.
