Natural Aging Reduces GLA Synthesis to Lessen Skin Quality

The process of aging slows the conversion of linoleic acid to GLA because delta-6 desaturase enzyme becomes more sluggish.

Evening primrose oil supplements, if appropriately dosed and of adequate potency, improve's skin texture and various skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

Other Factors in Skin Treatment and GLA Synthesis

In order for GLA synthesis to take place properly, the following must be in adequate supply:

  • vitamin B6
  • zinc
  • magnesium

These skin care nutrients act as coenzymes in this biochemical reaction which converts linoleic acid to GLA.
