You might be familiar with omega-3 fatty acids‚ but you may not know about omega-6 fatty acids. The latter are only found in plant-based oils‚ such as borage oil. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is just one of these fatty acids that's found in plants like the black currant. While fatty acids are important to your overall health‚ your body can't produce them on its own. Therefore‚ it’s important to supplement with them.
In order to maintain your overall health‚ you need both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. However‚ while all omega-3s provide the same benefits‚ not all omega-6 fatty acids are created equal. For instance‚ though GLA may be able to lessen painful joint inflammation‚ other omega-6s can actually promote inflammation.
In addition to potentially reducing inflammation‚ GLA might also help relieve symptoms of nerve pain. You can get GLA by eating foods that contain evening primrose oil‚ black currant oil‚ and hemp oil. Unfortunately‚ these oils aren’t commonly found in foods. Therefore‚ you may want to take a convenient GLA supplement.
One serving of Black Currant Seed Oil by Nutri West contains 250 mg of black current seed oil‚ which can provide the necessary GLA for overall wellbeing. This formula is preserved with vitamin E‚ a powerful antioxidant‚ which may help your body fight illnesses and disease.
The recommended dosage is between three and four capsules each night before bed. Each bottle of Nutri West’s Black Currant Seed Oil should last for approximately 30 days.

never without it
I have been using this product for 10 yrs now and am never without it. I take it everyday and it lessens my menstrual cramps and pain. Also it seems to help balance my hormones a little (at least that what I feel). I starting using this because it was recommended to me by a holistic health practitioner. Ive tried stopping a couple of times and have noticed a change in my menstrual pain so now I just keep taking it. I have also tried another brand but stick with nutrients. Felt it worked better.

My daughter has always been very moody. Upon seeing a CPK we learned that she is very sensitive which causes her emotional distress. He prescribed Black Currant Seed Oil and her entire mood changed. She is now a joy to live with.
