NEWmega™ Borage Oil contains 20-25% of the scarce but valuable omega-6 essential fatty acid Gamma Linolenic Acid.
GLA is important for the body to attain and maintain a healthy balance. GLA is converted in the body to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).
Background / Origin
The Borage plant, also known as Starflower, is originally Mediterranean. To the Romans, it was better known as the ‘herb of joy’, as they used Borage as an anti-depressant. It was the Romans who probably introduced this plant to Northern Europe. It was discovered that Borage tasted like cucumber. The flowers and the leaves added flavor to soups, salads and cold drinks.
