We often undervalue just how much is provided to us by plants. More than just leaves and branches‚ and more than just fruit or vegetables being harvested from them‚ plants have the ability to supply us with a whole host of botanical extracts and benefits. Take the borage plant‚ for instance. Also known as the starflower‚ scientific name Borago officinalis ‚ this flower contains the herb and seed oil properties of borage. It possible heath benefits are impressive‚ as well as its constitution and design. It is a native Mediterranean plant‚ and has historically been cultivated for both culinary and medicinal uses.
A dietary supplement containing this seed oil like Borage Oil 1000 mg by Vital Nutrients can do many possible things to contribute to your well-being. First and foremost‚ borage seed oil has the great advantage of containing naturally high amounts of gamma linolenic acid (GLA)‚ an essential omega 6 fatty acid that is an integral part of the body's metabolism process. Borage Oil actually has one of the highest contents of GLA of all plant sources. Its essential nature is in reference to the fact that the body does not have the ability to produce it itself‚ meaning that it must be supplemented into your diet in some way. Gamma linolenic acid may help with dilation of smooth muscle‚ as well as in support of cartilage and joint function‚ while also providing maintenance to healthy nerves and maybe contributing anti-inflammatory promotion.
Each 180 softgel capsule bottle of Borage Oil 1000 mg by Vital Nutrients should last 3-6 months at the recommended dosage of 1-2 capsules daily‚ or as recommended by a healthcare professional.
