  • Borage Seed Oil softgel capsules contain 1‚000 mg of unrefined‚ cold-pressed borage seed oil.
    Douglas Laboratories' Borage Seed Oil is an excellent source of the important gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) providing 240 mg of GLA per softgel.

    Douglas Laboratories’ Borage Seed Oil softgels are manufactured using only 100% vegetable oil from borage seeds (Borago officinalis The oil is cold-processed and handled carefully to avoid any oxidation‚ as indicated by consistently low peroxide values.

    No solvents such as hexane are used during the extraction and processing.

    Borage Seed Oil may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of Gammalinolenic Acid.

    Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated omega-6 linoleic and arachidonic acids. Dietary linoleic acid (18:2 omega-6) is a precursor to arachidonic acid (20:4) which in turn is a precursor for pro-inflammatory immune mediators‚ the 2-series prostaglandins‚ thromboxanes and leukotrienes.

    Although GLA is a precursor of arachidonic acid‚ it also competes with arachidonic acid effectively‚ and may help downregulate the formation of excessive levels of pro-inflammatory 2- series prostaglandins and other immune mediators.

    High quality oil.

    Im very careful about the quality of my supplements especially oils. I am 69 yrs young. Douglas Labs Borage Seed Oil is always fresh and pure. It has been a great addition to helping keep my skin moist. I used to get it at my Doctors office but now I can purchase it and have it sent at no extra charge to my home.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Very Good Product

    Im prescribed Borage Seed Oil through my health care practitioner and therefore take one of these softfgels every night. Its good for me to know that the oil in this product is not obtained from the seeds through harsh solvents and chemicals - definitely a product I feel good about taking so regularly.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
