Description of Borage Oil 1050mg, 240mg GLA, 120 Softgels, NOW Foods
Borage Oil is a nutritional oil containing over 80% polyunsaturated fats.
Linoleic acid and Gamma Linoleic acid (GLA) are enhanced essential fatty acids.
Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid, it can be more
efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by dietary sources.
Borage Oil is a more concentrated source of GLA than Evening Primrose Oil (EPO).
One Borage Oil capsule is equilvalent to about 5 standard EPO capsules in GLA
This highly concentrated source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) has been
used for hundreds of years to treat a historic list of ailments. Today, individuals
on high protein/high fat diets can benefit substantially from GLA supplementation,
as high fat intake can inhibit the body's normal conversion of GLA. And while
consumers still rely on Primrose Oil, Borage Oil boasts a much higher concentration
of vital GLA. To ensure absolute purity, the GLA in NOW Borage Oil is expelled
via cold press - a clean process that eliminates the use of solvents.
