What It Is

Borage Seed Oil is an excellent source of the important gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) providing 210 mg of GLA per softgel.

What It Does

Borage Seed Oil may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of gamma-linolenic acid. Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated omega-6 linoleic and arachidonic acids. Dietary linoleic acid (18:2 omega-6) is a precursor to arachidonic acid (20:4) which in turn is a precursor for pro-inflammatory immune mediators the 2-series prostaglandins thromboxanes and leukotrienes. Although GLA is a precursor of arachidonic acid it also competes with arachidonic acid effectively and may help downregulate the formation of excessive levels of pro-inflammatory 2-series prostaglandins and other immune mediators.
