What is linoleic acid?
Healthwell Black Cumin Oil ECO is naturally rich in omega-6 and is a great option for those who want to add linoleic acid to a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Omega-6 is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, where the linoleic acid is also known as the parent fatty acid of the omega-6 family. Linoleic acid is one of two essential fatty acids that the body is unable to produce on its own, but that must be added through the diet. Polyunsaturated fats are of great importance in the body. Omega-3 and -6 are two of the most important fatty acids needed by the body to maintain normal health. A normal level of polyunsaturated fatty acids can contribute to cardiovascular health.
In addition to linoleic acid, Black Cumin Oil ECO contains the fatty acid GLA (Gamma-Linolenic Acid), which is important for cell repair and new cell formation. GLA is also believed to be able to inhibit the production of several of the substances that contribute to inflammation in the body.
