What is gamma linolenic acid?

The main ingredients of Itchnon series are gamma-linolenic acid and vitamin E. γ -linolenic acid (gamma-linolenic acid) is one of the fatty acids (essential fatty acid), which is absolutely necessary for our human body. It is the substance that produced by metabolizing linoleic acid within body. However, there are increasing people who cannot change linoleic acid to γ -linolenic acid smoothly in their body. The reasons are lack of metabolism enzyme and depression of its action, lack of vitamin and trace element, or stress. At the same time γ -linolenic acid is important component substance for cell membrane, it has important action as a precursor of prostaglandin 1 series, to maintain the function of body system and cells in a normal way.

Effect and efficacy of γ – linolenic acid

γ -linolenic acidhas various functions. As a result of repeating investigation by maker, it is proven the improvement of “blood cells fluidity”. In other words, this makes red blood cells soft, and blood fluidity gets smooth as red blood cells become easier to get through blood vessel. This action is patented as “blood cells fluidity improvement agent” recently in Japan.

The details of proven effect of γ -linolenic acidis below.

  1. Prevention and improvement of hypertension, blockade of cardiovascular system, and arterial sclerosis.
  2. Prevention and improvement of complication from cerebral thrombosis, arterial sclerosis, and diabetes.
  3. Improvement of kidney function.
  4. Prevention and improvement of gastric ulcer.
  5. Improvement of premenstrual syndrome (cramps etc.).
  6. Improvement of constipation.
  7. Improvement of asthma and nasal inflammation.
  8. Prevention and improvement of arterial sclerosis.
  9. Improvement of atopic dermatitis.
  10. Prevention and improvement of osteoporosis.
  11. Prevention and improvement of chronic articular rheumatism.

We recommend γ -linoic acid for who ;

  • Face is hot, but limbs feel cold.
  • Who do not stop sweating.
  • Who is always tired.
  • Who can not sleep.
  • Who has osteoporosis.
  • Who has hyperlipidemia. etc.

Menopausal is deeply related to endocrine system, immune system, and nerve system. These three are concerning about blood fluidity. Itchnon slows the body change, and it helps your physical preparation. Moreover, this makes blood cells soft. By improving blood fluidity, it helps to balance your bones and liver cells.

For who care about diabetes and blood circulation
  • Limbs become numb, cold, and have pain.
  • Your legs get hurt when you walk for long distance.
  • Who has pain with limbs even though you keep quiet in bed.
  • Causing gangrene with your limbs purple.

It is complications that very scary about diabetes. We recommend to be aware of written below for who has diabetes.

These symptoms are caused by the change of women hormone balance. It is γ -linolenic acid that is related deeply to the hormone balance.

How to take γ – linolenic acid?

Now, how should we do to take γ – linolenic acid? γ – linolenic acid, in this natural world, is included only in breast milk or in very few of plants (oenothera tetraptera).

Therefore, γ -linolenic acid oil is developed by using biotechnology. It has more γ -linolenic acid than general evening primrose oil, and less linoleic acid. (When there include much linoleic acid, fatty peroxide, inconvenient substance for our body, is easier to be produced.) You might feel difficult only to hear the words “by using biotechnology”, but in a simple term, you can consider that it is utilizing “fermentation method”, the same way to make sake. (The main ingredient of sake is rice, and γ -linolenic acid is glucose sugar.) We can extract from γ -linolenic acid from oenothera tetraptera, borage, and black currant etc., but there are differences in contained amount and ingredient component by region or species, the supplying is also unstable. In fact, we had an experience that the harvest of those plants failed in the past, and we had difficulties to supply our product. On the other hand, γ -linolenic acid with fermentation method by microorganisms, it is produced by natural ingredient (glucose sugar) and microorganisms exist in natural world, it is possible to have stable supply and also it is not affected by the influence of heat and oxidation. Best of all, the contained amount of γ -linolenic acid is more than others, it is utilized not only in health supplement and cosmetic products, but also in products in different areas.
