Klaire Labs Borage Oil Borage oil provides a higher ratio of GLA to linoleic acid than evening primrose oil and similar plant oils and can be used to help reestablish a healthier omega-6 fatty acid balance. Although Western diets typically contain large amounts of omega-6 essential fatty acids from corn and safflower oils, the body's conversion to the active GLA form can be impeded by various factors, thus disturbing fatty acid balance in favor of synthesis of proinflammatory compounds. Cold-pressed and free of hexane or other solvents. Recommended Use: 1 capsule daily with food or as directed by a healthcare professional.
