Pure Encapsulations Black Currant Seed Oil offers support for joints, immune system, and the female reproductive system. They may support comfortable and healthy joints, promote immunity, and relieve some painful PMS symptoms. Many of the benefits of black currant oil are derived from gamma linolenic acid (GLA). One easy-to-swallow softgel capsule of Black Current Seed Oil by Pure Encapsulations contains 500 milligrams of black currant oil, including 70 milligrams of GLA. Gamma linolenic acid may support joint health by relieving pain or stiffness through its potential to promote healthy levels of cytokine activity. Since cytokines can support cellular functioning and growth, this supplement may work to improve your range of motion, making it easier for you to stay active. In addition, black currant seed oil may help strengthen your immune system by supporting the functioning of prostaglandin (PGE2) and T-lymphocytes, which participate in regulating immune response. The effectiveness of these compounds is thought to decline with age, so a supplement may help. A lot of women suffer from cramps, headaches, and other annoying symptoms during that time of the month. Fortunately, black currant seed oil may help your body maintain a healthy estrogen balance. Recommended use: 2 capsules, 1-2 times daily with meals or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Contains 14% GLA Black currant seed oil contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that has multiple physiological roles. Specifically, studies have shown that GLA promotes healthy prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) production. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, reported that GLA helps support healthy cytokine activity, a mechanism that may help to support joint comfort. Furthermore, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial reported statistically significant support of joint health in subjects supplementing with GLA. Another randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial performed at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging reported that black currant seed oil supplementation provided immune support in elderly subjects.
