EPA and GLA required in balance for balanced eicosanoid formation - supporting healthy immune responses.Eicosanoids (“Cell Scouts”), such as Prostaglandins and Leukotrienes, act like localized hormones.

EPA counters the strong immuno-suppressive eicosanoids - derived from Omega-6 AA.

Prostaglandins derived from GLA are immuno-stimulating - through the activation of T-Helper cells.


EFAs Discourage access of foreign invaders to the inside of the cell Most opportunist infections get inside cells
