  • Borage Super GLA 300™1300 mg 60 Softgels from Planetary Herbals may just be what you need to maintain fluid balance in the body and promote nutrient absorption.

    Borage plant‚ also known as ‘star flower’ is a native of Europe that bears blue star-shaped flowers. Many people believe that the plant (Borago officinalis) is a rich source of GLA (gamma linolenic acid). Many studies have shown that GLA is responsible for the potential generation of the biochemical prostaglandins in the body. The prostaglandins may help improve fluid maintenance in the cell membranes‚ which in turn improves the assimilation of nutrients. When nutrients are absorbed in the right proportions‚ the brain and immune health improves considerably.

    The natural softgels from Planetary Herbals uses the concentrated oil extracts of the borage plant. The process involves a unique solvent-free‚ non-toxic technique. Every borage softgel is estimated to contain about 1300 mg of borage seed oil that may be capable of yielding about 300 mg of GLA and about 446 mg of linoleic acid.

    Many researchers have shown that GLA may produce eicosanoids‚ which is a short-term regulatory messenger molecule in the cells. These messengers may help in various metabolic processes.

    Our body cannot prepare GLA on its own. Hence our diet must contain this essential fatty acid. To incorporate GLA rich foods in our diet‚ think of Borage Super GLA 300™1300 mg 60 Softgels from Planetary Herbals.

    quick and easy

    My ND asked me to start taking borage oil to "nourish my ovaries" in preparation for pregnancy.

    Pros

      I cant tell you how well my ovaries are nourished but I do have a very sensitive stomach and this supplement has been quick and painless. No odor no aftertaste. The pill is quite large but easy to swallow.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
