  • Rich in Omega-6 Fatty Acids
  • 240 mg of GLA
  • A Dietary Supplement

Borage Oil is a nutritional oil rich in polyunsaturated fats.  Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linolenic 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.

Borage Oil is a little known secret for keeping your skin healthy. It is a natural oil that not only restores moisture and smoothness to dry and damaged skin, but can also provide relief to people who suffer from chronic skin disorders such as eczema and atopic dermatitis.

Clinically, borage oil has been shown to be a very effective agent for treating skin disorders and for alleviating the inflammatory symptoms associated with these disorders. For everyday use, borage oil has been shown to be very effective in treating the redness, inflammation, and moisture loss associated with dry skin and to positively affect the texture, suppleness and moisture content of skin.
