Borage oil supplement, top quality
Benefits, side effects, review
October 10, 2018

  • Rich Omega-6 fatty acids
  • 190 mg Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)
  • Dietary Supplement

Which fatty acids are in it?
Borage Oil is a great plant source of the Omega-6 fatty acid Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).

High, top quality
The borage seed oil is extracted by a special cold press method which leaves no harmful residues and is hexane-free.

Benefits
GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) is a fatty acid used by most cells in the body to produce soothing PGE1 prostaglandins. Borage seed oil provides one of the highest yields of GLA in the botanical kingdom (more than twice the GLA yield of evening primrose oil).

Suggested Use
As a dietary supplement, healthy adults take one softgel 1 to 3 times daily with meals, or as recommended by a qualified healthcare professional.

Combining with other fatty acid or fish oil supplements
Q.
Can borage oil or Mega-GLA product be taken at the same time as fish oils or krill oil?
A. We don't see any reason why borage seed oil extract and fish oils, or krill oils, cannot be taken the same day unless your health care provider is treating you for a specific condition where one or the other oil is of more benefit for you.

Research article, review
PLOS One. 2013. Protective effect of borage seed oil and gamma linolenic acid on DNA: in vivo and in vitro studies. Borage seed oil has been used as a treatment for various degenerative diseases. Many useful properties of this oil are attributed to its high gamma linolenic acid content (GLA, 18:3 ω-6). The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the safety and suitability of the use of borage seed oil, along with one of its active components, GLA, with respect to DNA integrity, and to establish possible in vivo toxic and in vitro cytotoxic effects. Based on the antimutagenic and cytotoxic effects along with the ability to increase the health span, we propose supplementation with borage seed oil rather than GLA, because it protects DNA by modulating oxidative genetic damage in D. melanogaster, increases the health span and exerts cytotoxic activity towards promyelocytic HL60 cells.
