Provides nature’s most potent concentration of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an important omega6 fatty acid, measuring up to 24%. The essential fatty acids in borage seeds have proven to impart a regulatory function on the body’s fatty-acid metabolism. From GLA, the body forms dihomo-γ-linolenic acid (DGLA). This is one of the body's three sources of eicosanoids (along with AA and EPA.) DGLA is the precursor of the prostaglandin PGH1, which in turn forms PGE1 and the thromboxane TXA1. Both PGE11 and TXA1 are anti-inflammatory. Borage has been used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and skin inflammations.
Note: People with a history of seizures or seizure disorder are generally advised to avoid borage oil and other γ-linolenic acid-rich oils.
Borage should not be taken during pregnancy. It can induce labor and harm fetal growth or cause abortion.
