Douglas Laboratories - Borage Seed Oil

High Potency Source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid

No Artificial Preservatives - 90 Softgels

Douglas Labs Borage Seed Oil is an excellent source of the important gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) providing 210 mg of GLA per softgel. Douglas Laboratories’ Borage Seed Oil softgels are manufactured using only 100% vegetable oil from borage seeds (Borago officinalis The oil is cold-processed and handled carefully to avoid any oxidation, as indicated by consistently low peroxide values. No solvents such as hexane are used during the extraction and processing.

Borage Seed Oil FUNCTIONS

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.

Borage Seed Oil INDICATIONS

Borage Seed Oil may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of gamma linolenic acid.

SIDE EFFECTS: No adverse side effects have been reported.
