A Packet Of Best Quality Pure
Starflower Oil / Borage Oil 1250mg Softgels
High Strength (MINIMUM 20% GLA)
Borage oil is extracted from the blue, star shaped borage flower. Borage oil contains the active component, gamma linoleic acid (GLA) which is the same acid found in evening primrose oil (EPO). In fact, it is one of the richest known sources of this essential fatty acid.
The borage, or starflower, plant produces seeds that are a rich source of an essential fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA. The body can convert GLA to an anti-inflammatory compound called prostaglandin E1, or PGE1. Borage oil has a reputation for alleviating symptoms of autoimmune disorders, skin disorders, premenstrual syndrome and cramps, diabetic neuropathy and other inflammatory conditions. The oil is usually taken internally in a capsule, but can also be applied topically. Of the three oils that are good sources of GLA — borage, evening primrose and black currant seed — borage has the highest concentration.
Aids Weight Loss: Borage oil’s high GLA content, essential for metabolism, can kill the appetite and aid in weight loss. A 2007 study, which gave one group 5g borage oil and the other 5g olive oil as supplements, found that the one that consumed borage oil lost more weight than the other. To use borage oil for weight loss, take 1-2 GLA borage oil supplements with meals, or as directed by your physician.
Soothes Arthritis Inflammation: GLA suppresses the molecules that cause joint inflammation. For arthritis, take 1 to 2 GLA borage oil supplements with meals. However, do not take more than 3,000mg of GLA per day as it may increase inflammation.
Cleanses The Kidneys: Borage oil ingested as gelatin pills has a diuretic effect due to its concentration of potassium salts. This cleanses the kidneys and helps detoxify the body.
Improves Cardiac Health: Borage oil reduces the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease by reducing plaque and inflammation along the arterial walls and increasing peripheral blood circulation, thus boosting cardiac health.
Fights PMS: Borage oil can stimulate the adrenal glands and increase adrenaline production, improving PMS attacks in women. The adrenal glands also regulate stress and increase the body’s resistance to infections, thus enhancing the metabolism of body. Its analgesic properties can help relieve pain.
