Borage Oil

Size:90 gelcap
Potency:1000 mg

Borage Oil is an excellent source of the omega-6 fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). Compared to other sources, borage oil offers the highest percentage of GLA. GLA has been shown to increase levels of prostaglandins (PGE1) that have a positive effect on skin and immune health, as well as support for a normal, healthy inflammatory response.* GLA has also been shown to provide benefits for female-related health issues. Our Borage Oil is derived from pure, cold, expeller pressed, hexane free oil. The cold, expeller pressing produces little to no heat, which in turn helps maintain the integrity of the naturally-occurring fatty acids. Unlike many borage oil products on the market, ours is extracted without the use of hexane; which is a potentially toxic substance. The manufacturing techniques used results in the highest quality, purest borage oil available.

Features:

  • Provides 1000 mg of borage seed oil per softgel.

  • Contains 220 mg of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), 380 mg Linoleic acid (LA) and 100 mg of oleic acid (OA) per serving.

  • Derived from cold, expeller pressed hexane-free borage seed oil.

Benefits:

  • Provides a good source of the important omega-6 fat GLA, which has been the subject of numerous published research studies.

  • Studies show GLA helps support healthy skin by helping to maintain the skin’s moisture barrier.*

  • GLA is a precursor to DGLA which is used to manufacture prostaglandins that help support a normal, healthy inflammatory response.*

  • GLA despite also being a precursor to arachidonic acid (which often leads to inflammation), has actually been shown to reduce the production of pro-inflammatory compounds.*

  • GLA has also been shown to provide support for female hormone related health issues.*
