Borage oil softgels
Borage oil softgels contain Borage seed oil and Vitamin. Borage oil is widely used for its high content in GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), a polyunsaturated fatty acid of the Omega 6 series called semi-essential, which in the seeds reaches an average content of 17-25%, much higher than in any other plant source.
Borage oil is an excellent adjuvant for:
- WRINKLES AND SKIN AGING
- PSORIASIS, DERMATITES
- MENSTRUAL PAIN
- EARLY MENOPAUSE
In addition to the relevant gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) content, Borage oil contains α-linolenic acid (ALA), a precursor of the Omega 3 series, and many other polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Essential fatty acids are necessary for many physiological processes including normal growth, skin and hair health, cholesterol metabolism and reproductive performance. They support the structure and functionality of cell membranes, helping to improve their fluidity and flexibility.
Omega-3 fatty acids are more abundant in the brain and retina cell membranes, they are necessary for proper neural activity, sight and reproductive function. Omega-6 are abundant in the liver and platelets.
Our Borage oil softgels are enriched with vitamin E, a powerful natural antioxidant, also useful to preserve the integrity of the fatty acids contained in the oil.
