Flax oil and borage oil are natural sources of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids‚ which can have an array of health benefits. When these oils are combined‚ they serve as a concentrated source of omega-3s‚ as well as GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). Omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA may support brain functioning while relieving inflammation.
Perhaps more important as you get older is the impact of GLA and other fatty acids on joint health. The fatty acids contained in borage and flax seed oil both promote better functioning and increased comfort in the joints. Less pain in the wrists‚ knees‚ or elbows can make it easier for you to exercise and stay active to maintain your overall well-being. The two oils may be more effective when they work together.
Borage oil contains anywhere from 17 to 25 percent of GLA‚ making it the main fatty acid it contains. Meanwhile‚ flax seed oil provides 50 percent of omega-3 fatty acids such as ALA (alpha-linolenic acid)‚ which the body converts into EPA to support cardiovascular health. Flax/Borage Oil by Pure Encapsulations serves as a convenient source of both types of oil‚ all in just five calories per capsule! These softgels are made with fresh-pressed oils that are created without any other chemicals. To further support absorption and bioavailability‚ this supplement also contains vitamin E.
Take six to eight softgel capsules daily‚ in divided doses with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 250-softgel bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Flax/Borage Oil should last for about 31 to 41 days.
Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.
