Vitacost Black Currant Oil Description

Natural source of both omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA) and omega-6 gamma linoleic acid (GLA). Promotes cardiovascular health.*

What is black currant oil?


Black currant oil is extracted from seeds of the black currant plant, a shrub with large, maple-like leaves and purplish-black berries that grows throughout the midwestern U.S.

Black currant oil is a natural source of omega-3 essential fatty acid (EFA) alpha linolenic acid (ALA), and it's also one of nature's best sources of omega-6 gamma linoleic acid (GLA). GLA is primarily present in plant fats including borage oil, evening primrose oil and black currant oil. GLA cannot be synthesized by the human body and must be obtained through diet.

How does black currant oil support health?

  • Supplies EFAs, which are beneficial for many aspects of health.
  • GLA (found in black currant oil) is converted in the body to DGLA, a precursor in the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are hormone-like compounds involved in a variety of normal body functions.
  • May support a healthy immune system.*
  • Supports joint comfort and mobility.*
  • Promotes cardiovascular health.*

Why choose Vitacost Black Currant Oil?

  • Supplies 1,000 mg of black currant oil per 1-softgel serving.
  • Each bottle contains 120 servings.
  • Exceptional quality at an extraordinary value.

Try it. We have been taking this product and find that it does not interfere with anything else we take or eat. That is very important. We need to take this product longer to see more positive results. April 25, 2013
Product WORKS! I feel so much better and feel fluidity in my joints -- that I didn't feel until taking Black Currant Oil by Vita Cost! March 11, 2013
Good results! I have been taking Evening of Primrose Oil capsules, then recently heard that Black Currant Oil is better. I believe that it might be better for my thin hair, and my nails are also growing stronger. March 7, 2013
Vitacost Black Currant Oil is fresh The product is as good or better than many I purchased at natural health stores for more money. December 9, 2012
You get what you pay for. I ordered this and another Black seed oil (Black currant oil) from another website and to my surprise, Vitacosts version was obviously a more diluted form of Black currant oil. Black seed or Black Currant oil has a strong and pungent taste and may have been the reason why these capsules are both lighter in color which indicates some sort of processing or refining has taken place. Another con for this product is the Gelatin Capsule its in. This may be an elementary way to introduce Black Currant into your diet but I recommend getting it from another source for better results.
