Benefits of Organic Borage Oil in Softgels:
Borage oil has a 2% concentration of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) content. The GLA is a type of omega-6 fatty acid considered one of the best dietary sources of balanced production. Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) content is regarded as a general conditioner used to help balance the production of inflammatory prostaglandins and promote healthy skin and hair growth. It also helps heal scars, eczema, rashes, dry scalp, acne and wrinkles.
The essential fatty acids combined here have proven to impart a regulatory function on the body's fatty acid metabolism.
The body's fatty acid metabolism is also called lipid metabolism. Saturated fatty acids are most of the fats we eat, and there are only a few types in nature. Unsaturated fatty acids can be found in oils, vegetable oils, nuts and seeds.
Essential fatty acids in borage seed oil are turned into hormone-like substances known as prostaglandins. Those chemical substances formed naturally in the body. They are responsible for:
- Regulation of metabolism of glucose and fats (fatty acid synthesis)
- Regulate the production of hormones, enzymes and prostaglandin-like substances (PGE2), which regulate the immune system, and stimulate cell repair.
- Increase calcium absorption
- A source of amino acids and flavonoids (plant pigments): Amino acids are organic substances found in all living organisms. Many of them have specific functions within the body (i.e. regulation of enzyme systems). Flavonoids are pigments that give plants their colour.
