Borage oil is a nourishing oil rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Linoleic acid and gamma linolenic acid (GLA) is rich essential fatty acids.
Despite the fact that the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid, can be used more efficiently for body functions when supplied directly from dietary sources.
Borage oil is a concentrated source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that the body converts into an anti-inflammatory eicosanoids hormone called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).

However, many causes interfere with the conversion of GLA to eicosanoids hormones such as chronic diseases, aging, saturated fats, hydrogenated oils, blood sugar problems, and inadequate amounts of vitamin C, magnesium, zinc and vitamins B
Supplements containing GLA circumvent the problems of conversion into prostaglandins resulting in correct output.
