Borage Oil

1000 mg Certified Organic
NPN: 80007229
Format: Softgels
Non GMO

Description

Our borage oil is organic, non‑GMO, and an excellent source of gamma‑linolenic acid.

New Roots Herbal’s Borage Oil is sourced exclusively from its seeds. It boasts nature’s most potent concentration of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), measuring up to 24%.

Borage oil owes its health benefits to the presence of essential fatty acids, the most important of which is GLA, an omega‑6 fatty acid. A great deal of scientific research has been conducted with supplements rich in GLA, resulting in significant interest.

The essential fatty acids present in borage seeds have proven to impart a regulatory function on the body’s fatty-acid metabolism. Fat metabolism is as critical as the metabolism of proteins and carbohydrates, as evidenced by the drastic rise in obesity-related degenerative diseases, especially coronary heart disease.

Current research supports the use of essential fatty acids in promoting optimal health. These natural plant substances have created a great deal of interest in the treatment of numerous health problems.
