Product Description
Borage Oil is a nutritional oil containing over 80% polyunsaturated fats. Linoleic acid and Gamma Linoleic 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 capsule is equilvalent to about 5 standard EPO capsules in GLA content.

This highly concentrated source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) has been used for hundreds of years to treat a historic list of ailments. Today, individuals on high protein/high fat diets can benefit substantially from GLA supplementation, as high fat intake can inhibit the body's normal conversion of GLA. And while consumers still rely on Primrose Oil, Borage Oil boasts a much higher concentration of vital GLA. To ensure absolute purity, the GLA in NOW Borage Oil is expelled via cold press - a clean process that eliminates the use of solvents.
