Omega-3 fatty acids are important to insulin resistance for several reasons, heart disease, cellular integrity and the prevention of neuropathy among them. Both DHA and GLA (gamma linolenic acid) are often recommended to people living with blood glucose imbalances as both have been shown to improve and prevent insulin resistance related neuropathy.
Dietary fat determines cell membrane composition and a lack of omega-3 fatty acids leads to reduced membrane fluidity, which in turn causes reduced insulin binding to receptors on cellular membranes and/or reduced insulin action. GLA has been shown to improve and prevent insulin resistance related neuropathy. Insulin resistance is associated with a substantial disturbance in essential fatty acid metabolism. One of the key disturbances is the impairment in the process of converting linoleic acid to GLA. As a result, it provides highly concentrated GLA derived from organic borage oil that can bypass some of this disturbance.
