Benefits of supplementing GLA include:

-Vasodilatation of blood vessels which can reduce high blood pressure.
-Reduction of abnormal blood clotting which can reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
-Enhanced regulation of immune response.
-Enhanced defense against abnormal cell proliferation.
-Control of common skin disorder such as eczema.
-Slowing of some aspects of normal aging.

As far as side effects go, Gamma linolenic acid appears to be safe for most adults when taken in amounts smaller than 2.8 grams per day for up to a year. It can cause digestive-tract side effects, such as soft stools, diarrhea, belching, and intestinal gas. It can also make blood take longer to clot.

Since gamma linolenic acid might slow blood clotting, there is concern that it might increase the risk of extra bleeding during and after surgery. Stop taking gamma linolenic acid at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Hope this helps!
