Product Overview

Description

  • Expeller Pressed, Hexane-Free
  • Rich in Omega-6 Fatty Acids
  • 240 mg of GLA
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • GMP Quality Assured

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.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 softgel 1 to 2 times daily preferably with meals. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Omega-3 Fish or Flax Oil and Tru-E BioComplex.

Other Ingredients

great for hair

Posted by Reviewer1630926 on Jan 17, 2017

I actually bought it to help my period pain, but found that EPO (Evening Primrose Oil) was better for period pain. However, this really helped with my hair!! My hair was like straw due to health issues, after taking this my hair is normal! Be patient, it does take a long time, at least 6 months to notice a change (taking 1-2 capsules a day). It took me about a year to get my hair thick and shinny again. But my hair was extremely dry. If your hair is not like straw, you will notice results sooner. I'm very happy. I notice difference in my hair when I stop taking it.

Not for those with sensitive acne prone skin

Posted by meeova on Jul 22, 2016

Wish I would have done more research before taking this. I began taking this to prevent acne and premature aging after reading positives reviews, however my experience wasn't a great one unfortunately, not only did it make my face breakout but also gave me a rash on my neck, not fun. Remember, this is an omega 6 fatty acid. Please please please don't be a fool like me and only focus on the positive experiences you read around the internet. Everyone's skin and body is different and therefore will react differently. Took these for 6 weeks and after about two days or so of no longer taking them the rash on my neck disappeared. Acne on my face is a little more persistent, I suppose, so will have to be patient and wait that one out. Now, have in mind my skin was quite clear before taking this, just a few blackheads here and there but nothing bad like I'm experiencing now. Did nothing for my hormones and pms in fact think my hormones are way more out of balance now after taking these. The only positive thing I did notice was thicker hair but seriously not worth it if I have a face full of papules/moderate acne.

Good veg fish oil substitute

Posted by 5302781962227936516 on May 27, 2015

High in Omegas, this is a good choice for people who want to replace fish oil. Gel capsules are large, easy to swallow
