Borage Oil is a nutritional oil rich in 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 softgel is equivalent to about 5 standard EPO softgels in GLA content.
Each softgel may typically provide the following naturally occurring Omega-6 fatty acid: Linoleic Acid . . . . . . . . . 380 mg
Contains no: sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.
If you are pregnant/lactating, taking any medications, or planning any medical procedure, please consult your healthcare practitioner before using. Keep out of reach of children.
