diet supplement- evening primrose oil
Hi there,
Does anybody happen to know about the supplement-evening primrose oil? actualy i'm a biology student and was recently posed this question about the biochemistry of evening primrose. i've managed only to find out that the active ingredient in the supplement is linoleic acid n its somehow converted to GLA in the body but have no idea at all how its converted n the pathway it takes in the body; how it brings about the effects expected, what are the enzymes involved....can somebody enlighten me cos i'm really scratching my head
