What Is It?
Borage oil is extracted from the seeds of Borago
officinalis, an annual, bristly herb, originally indigenous
to the Mediterranean region. The main fatty acid in
borage oil is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), typically in
concentrations of 17-20%. GLA is an essential fatty acid
that has multiple physiological roles. Pure Encapsulations
borage oil contains 20% GLA.*
Uses For Borage Oil
Healthy Joint, Immune System And Skin Support:
Studies have indicated that GLA promotes healthy
prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) production, which helps support
healthy joints, as well has healthy blood flow and vessel
function. A randomized, double blind, placebo controlled
trial reported statistically significant support for joint health
in subjects supplementing with GLA from borage seed oil.
Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical
School, Worcester, reported that GLA helps support
healthy cytokine activity, a mechanism that may be linked
to both immune system support and joint health. PGE1
has also been associated with supporting and soothing
the skin when used topically or taken orally.*
