  • Double Strength
  • 140 mg GLA
  • A Dietary Supplement

Black Currant Oil is extracted from Black Currant Seeds to produce a valuable nutritional oil containing 14% GLA. The Omega-3, Alpha Linolenic Acid and the Omega-6, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) are both considered essential fatty acids. Although the body can manufacture GLA from other dietary omega-6 fatty acids, GLA can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly through dietary sources.

Black Currant Seed Oil is the only natural oil source containing all three high health Omega Fatty Acids GLA, ALA and SDA.  These high health oils have been world renown by medical professionals for their effectiveness helping human health. In particular, GLA (Gamma-Linolenic-Acid) has demonstrated powerful health benefits through many clinical based studies.

Black currants have excellent anti-bacterial properties as they are loaded with two chemical compounds, tannin and anthocyanin, that can prevent the growth of bacteria within the urinary tract. The anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-oxidative properties of black currant oil can also help with a number of skin disorders.
