Pilot's proprietary, clinically optimized formulation of dietary fatty acids combines gammalinolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid with anti-inflammatory activity found in high concentrates in glycerolipids of certain plants, and a delta-5 desaturase inhibitor.
The recently issued patent (United States Patent 6,107,334) covers a method of delivering gammalinolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid found in high concentrations in glycerolipids of certain plants, and a delta-5 desaturase inhibitor to derive the beneficial effects of GLA -- reported to safely improve clinical symptoms of several inflammatory disorders -- without its harmful effects when given alone.
