Cold Pressed Borage Oil  - Borage Oil: May support healthy joint function - May support adrenal health - May help to prevent blood clot formation - May support healthy hair, skin and nails - May support symptom relief associated with PMS and Menopause

Borage oil is derived from the seeds of the borage (Borago officinalis) plant. It is native to Europe and North Africa, but is also cultivated in North America. It is the richest source of the omega 6 essential fatty acid, gamma linoleic acid (GLA), containing 20-26% GLA. GLA is derived from linoleic acid, also known as omega-6 fatty acid, which is present in many common vegetable oils like safflower and sunflower.

GLA is the precursor for many important prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that may affect blood thickness, skin and joint health, cholesterol levels, dilation and constriction of blood vessels, inflammation, and more.
While omega-6 is readily available in the diet and consumed in large quantities in the American diet, many people are still deficient in GLA. Scientists think this is explained by the fact many oils containing omega-6 are hydrogenated, which can inhibit the conversion of omega-6 to GLA.

Other than Borage the primary dietary sources of GLA are black currant seed oil and evening primrose oil. GLA can also be produced in the body from omega-6 fatty acids. In addition to GLA, borage oil also contains valuable minerals needed for proper cardiovascular function and healthy skin and nails.
