Borage Super GLA (1300mg 30 softgels
As an essential fatty acid, GLA is a building block the body uses to ultimately produce and store energy, and is used in every cell of the body. EFAs help to make up our cellular membranes and act as "gate-keepers" for our cells. Having healthy cell membranes is crucial, as every cell must have the ability to take in the proper nutrients and keep out metabolic toxins. EFAs maintain the fluidity and permeability of our cellular membranes, promoting nutrient absorption. As the brain contains a high percentage of fatty tissue, EFAs also promote healthy brain function.One of the most important roles of EFAs is the production of eicosanoids, short-lived regulatory messenger molecules inside our cells. These hormonelike substances regulate a variety of metabolic processes in the body, including blood pressure balance, smooth muscle contraction, proper blood clotting, blood vessel flexibility and immune system regulation.
Borage Super GLA 300 is a good way of taking a metabolic shortcut and ensuring the production of the crucial prostaglandins. Borage Super GLA 300 is an oil concentrate expressed from the seeds of the uniquely high-yielding borage plant using a specialized, non-toxic, solvent-free, coldpressed extraction technique. Each softgel capsule contains 1,300 mg of borage seed oil, yielding 300 mg of gamma linolenic acid and 446 mg of linoleic acid.
Suggested use: 1 or 2 softgels daily with meals.
