Use GLA to Fight Excess Fat

“The supplement GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) is an omega-6 fatty acid that sends calming chemicals to the body’s fat cells, signaling them to give up some of their fat stores,” explains Dr. Oz. GLA is found in healthy oils such as evening primrose, black currant or borage seed oil, and should be taken in balance with adequate omega-3 intake (found in fish and fish oil), he says. You can find this supplement at your local health food store or online.
