Concentrated source of omega-6 GLA
Although Western diets typically contain large amounts of omega-6 essential fatty acids from corn and safflower oils, the body’s conversion to the active GLA form can be impeded by various factors, thus disturbing fatty acid balance in favor of synthesis of proinflammatory compounds. Borage oil provides a higher ratio of GLA to linoleic acid than evening primrose oil and similar plant oils and can be used to help reestablish a healthier omega-6 fatty acid balance.† Cold-pressed and free of hexane or other solvents.
