Expeller Pressed‚ Hexane-Free
Rich in Omega-6 Fatty Acids
240 mg of GLA
A Dietary Supplement
Borage Oil is a nutritional oil rich in polyunsaturated fats. Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) are enhanced essential fatty acids. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid‚ it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by dietary sources. Borage Oil is a more concentrated source of GLA than Evening Primrose Oil (EPO). One Borage Oil softgel is equivalent to about 5 standard EPO softgels in GLA content.

NOW Vitamins is a great company with low
I always look for economy but not at the price of low quality ingredients so with that in mind I almost always choose the NOW brand because they are high quality at a god price. This Borage oil is a high dosage I use it for my eyes I understand it is good for keeping dry eyes hydrated.
