Black currant is a fruit with many potential health benefits‚ mostly from its seeds. These include promoting joint health and comfort‚ support for your immune system‚ and help for women suffering from uncomfortable premenstrual syndrome symptoms.

One of the most important ingredients in black currant oil is a compound known as GLA or gamma linolenic acid. This fatty acid may promote increased immunity and support the joints. Each softgel capsule of Pure Encapsulations' Black Current Seed Oil provides 70 milligrams of GLA‚ as part of 500 milligrams total of black currant oil.

Some believe that gamma linolenic acid may contribute to a more comfortable range of motion by lessening joint pain and stiffness. It does this by promoting healthy levels of cytokine activity; cytokines work to support cellular functioning and proliferation. As a result‚ you can move more easily; physical activity supports overall well-being‚ so this is a good thing!

Meanwhile‚ black currant seed oil may also work to boost immunity. It can support the functioning of T-lymphocytes and prostaglandin (PGE2)‚ especially as you get older. Both are responsible for regulating immune response‚ which may alleviate or prevent mild‚ inconveniencing symptoms of sickness.

Finally‚ premenstrual syndrome (PMS) negatively affects the quality of life of many women. It occurs shortly before ovulation and prior to getting your period‚ as a result of the female hormones. Some believe that black currant oil works to promote a healthy balance of estrogen in the body‚ which may help you feel better during that time of the month.

Every bottle of Black Currant Seed Oil by Pure Encapsulations contains 250 soft gel capsules. Take two to four capsules daily with food.

      Great for Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms

      from Ohio on 8/30/2021
      I read a study showing BCSO can help with pain and inflammation associated with RA, and my rheumatologist gave me the okay to try it. After about seven weeks of taking one capsule twice a day, I felt no pain most of the time. I went to my first in-person appointment with this doctor today, and she couldn't get over how great my joints look! BCSO is allowing me to slowly wean down (and hopefully eventually off) prednisone—I'm at the lowest dose I've been on in a very long time. As an added bonus, it also got rid of two plantar warts on my foot. (And yes, I'm sure it was the BCSO because I started it, and they started getting better, then I paused for the covid vaccine process just in case and they didn't change at all, and when I restarted, they went away.) Also, I'm hypersensitive and have literally three gallon-sized bags (and thousands of dollars) worth of supplements my body had negative reactions to, but I had no issues with this! I'm so grateful and can't recommend it highly enough.


      Effectiveness, no extra ingredients, hypoallergenic, dependable brand
