Borage Oil with Omega-6 Fatty Acids nutritionally provides overall health support.
Borage seed oil supplies nature's richest source of the essential Omega-6 fatty acid, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). As a precursor of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), GLA plays an important role in immune system health. GLA is also important for cardiovascular health, supports capillaries and nourishes nerves.
Borage oil is one of the few sources of gamma-linolenic acid. Gamma-linolenic acid is a precursor to prostaglandins, action-specific biomolecules that regulate many important functions in cells. Borage oil also contains the essential fatty acid, linoleic acid (Omega-6).
Borage Oil 1000 mg supplies GammaLinolenic Acid (GLA), which helps provide nutritional support for overall health and for women with PMS. GLA can be synthesized from Linolenic Acid in the body by the rate-limiting enzyme delta-6 desaturase. However, biological conversion is estimated to be less than 10% and there are no significant food sources, which is why supplementation may be important.
For adults, take one (1) softgel two times daily, preferably with meals, or follow the advice of your health care professional. As a reminder, discuss the supplements and medications you take with your health care providers.
If you are pregnant, nursing or taking any medications, consult your doctor before use. Discontinue use and consult your doctor if any adverse reactions occur.
