Borage Oil 1,000 mg. 90 caps $22.95

Borage Oil
Borage Oil naturally contains the highest quantity (26 %) of the essential fatty acid GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). GLA is normally synthesized in the liver from dietary linoleic acid (LA). This reaction is frequently deficient in many people because of the interference by sugar, saturated fats, and trans-fatty acids (margarine).

GLA is part of the Omega 6 series of essential fatty acids and is the critical precursor to the Series 1 prostaglandins (PGE1) and other hormones in the body. The PGE1 prostaglandins protect the body against the deleterious effects of the PGE2 series prostaglandins, such as high blood pressure, sticky platelets, inflammation, water retention and lowered immune function. The series 2 prostaglandins are made from arachidonic acid, which is derived from consumption of excessive animal products.

  • GLA helps with water retention and PMS symptoms.
  • GLA lowers high blood pressure.
  • GLA increases immune function in the body.
  • GLA Prostaglandins Series 1 help regulate metabolism & cell growth.
