Nutritional Focus: skin‚ essential fatty acids‚ inflammation‚ hormonal health‚ cardiovascular health‚ eczema‚ arthritis and more.
Essential fatty acids are fats and oils that are essential to human health. Despite the negative connotations of “fats‚” thanks to manufacturers of low-fat foods and diet crazes‚ the truth is that without fats‚ our bodies would cease to function. Borage seed oil is one of the best types of oils (fats) for health and healing. Degenerative disease will result from a lack of good fats in the daily diet. In fact‚ this is what we are seeing more and more in the modern era where 80% of our population is deficient in essential fatty acids. The best oils and fats to add to the daily diet include organic‚ unrefined: flaxseed oil‚ evening primrose oil‚ coconut oil‚ fish oils‚ borage oil and olive oil.
Essential fatty acids contained in borage oil‚ have been studied for their benefits in:
1) high cholesterol.
2) angina (heart pain).
3) stroke and heart attack.
4) psoriasis‚ eczema and other skin conditions.
5) arthritis and other joint problems.
6) multiple sclerosis and other nervous system disorders.
7) high blood pressure.
9) all hormonal problems.
11) vision and eye health.
By combining borage oil with FlaxSeed Oil‚ you are providing your body with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids — both being “good” fats needed for biochemical functions.GLA: Gamma linolenic acid: And Skin Problems… Borage seed oil is derived from the borage (Borago officinalis) plant – a wild flower that grows throughout Europe‚ America and North Africa.
“Also known as the starflower because of its bright blue star-shaped flowers‚ the plant is harvested for its therapeutic seeds. They contain one of the richest sources of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) – a vital health-giving fatty acid – known to man. The GLA content of borage oil varies between 20-26 per cent. It is an essential fatty acid that is converted in your body to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).“Prostaglandin E1 has anti-inflammatory properties and may also act as a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator. As a result‚ it is a useful treatment for rheumatoid arthritis (painful joints benefit from the anti-inflammatory properties of increased blood flow)‚ Raynaud’s disease (restricted circulation in the extremities)‚ high cholesterol and atherosclerosis.
