BORAGE OIL [Acids]
Borage oil in combination with Vitamin E.
BORAGE OIL of Natural energy is obtained by cold pressing of the Borage plant (Borago officinalis), also often called starflower. Vitamin E has been added to this oil as a natural preservative because Vitamin E prevents the oxidation of Borage oil. Natural energy bORAGE OIL contains a high content of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) as well as Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin B6 and Biotin. GLA is an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid that is insufficiently present in the current Western diet. In the body, GLA is converted into the potent anti-inflammatory prostaglandin E1.
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) extracted from Borage oil helps maintain a normal structure and elasticity of the skin.
