Vitacost Borage Oil with GLA Description

Supports a healthy inflammatory response*

What is borage oil?

 

Borage (Borago officinalis) is an herb native to Syria that eventually spread throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean. It is now cultivated in many different areas of Europe and the U.S.

 

Borage flowers and leaves are edible. The seeds are often pressed to produce an oil rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is an omega-6 unsaturated fatty acid normally used by the body to create prostaglandins. GLA increases the content of dihomo- -linolenic acid (DGLA), which is converted to prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). Prostaglandin E1 is a hormone-like substance that plays a part in many biochemical and metabolic processes of the body.

inconsistent quality Have purchased this product in the past & was quite pleased wih the price & taste, but the most recent container I bought was off in both smell & taste. Possibly the heat has affected it. To compare, I purchased a small container of another "clean" brand locally & it was tasteless--which I much prefer, since I squeeze the oil out of the gelatin capsule to take it. I plan to purchase smaller-sized bottles in the future, even though the cost is higher. June 28, 2014
Great price I bought this looking to increase my omega-9 intake as advised by my naturopath. This was by far the best price for a quality product. No harsh smell or taste, and the bottle will last me a while. April 20, 2014
Excellent I've used this product for two years. Only one I've found with this potency. High quality and good value. April 2, 2014
