Pure Encapsulations Borage Oil 180 capsules
Borage oil‚ extracted from the seeds of the Borago officinalis plant‚ contains the essential fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA is a natural compound that promotes the formation of E1 prostaglandins. The oil from the seeds of this bristly‚ annual herb contains 20 percent GLA—the highest known concentration in the plant world. The essential fatty acid compound in GLA is a building block for the E1 prostaglandin.
Prostaglandins‚ which are fatty compounds similar to hormones found throughout the human body‚ are important to overall health. They may regulate inflammation‚ help blood flow‚ support the immune system‚ and keep skin healthy and youthful. The E1 prostaglandin (PGE1) is known to help patients with a range of problems‚ from bone diseases to erectile dysfunction. Meanwhile‚ PGE1 prostaglandins support cytokine activity. Cytokines are small proteins produced by white blood cells that help the immune system fight off infection‚ and are used as signaling proteins that carry messages between cells. Because borage oil supports healthy E1 prostaglandin formation‚ and PGE1 helps with cytokine formation‚ Pure Encapsulations’ Borage Oil 1‚000 mg softgel capsules can:
- Improve blood flow and vessel function
- Support joint health
- Alleviate skin problems
- Support skin elasticity
Adults: As a dietary supplement, take 1 to 4 capsules daily, in divided doses, with meals.
