Pure Encapsulations Borage Oil 60 capsules
Borage Oil from Pure Encapsulations is a dietary supplement made from a blend of plant oils designed to support immune, joint, muscle, skin and reproductive health. A natural herb with bristles that comes from the Mediterranean region: that's where borage oil comes from. A supplement like Borage Oil 1‚000 mg by Pure Encapsulations is a more convenient way to ensure sufficient intake of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). This supplement contains cold-pressed borage oil that consists of 20% GLA‚ which is the highest amount in any plant source. You can also rest easy because the oil contains no solvents whatsoever.
Why does the GLA in borage oil matter? It's a fatty acid that may support your joints and immune system. Weakened or sore joints in the knees‚ wrists‚ or other areas may result in pain or stiffness; this discomfort can interfere with your quality of life‚ and prevent you from doing the physical activities that help you maintain overall health.
Gamma linolenic acid supports joint strength by promoting your body's production of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1)‚ which may also support the functioning of blood vessels and healthy blood flow.
In addition‚ the GLA in borage seed oil supports the activity of your body's cytokines‚ which may boost immunity. Cytokine activity is involved in helping your immune cells communicate with each other; as a result‚ they can work more effectively in protecting you from getting sick.
Adults: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule, 1 to 4 times daily, with or between meals.
If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medications or have a medical condition, please consult your healthcare practitioner before use. Keep out of the reach of children.
