Borage Oil is the richest source of Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that the body converts to a
hormone like substance called prostaglandin E1. This substance reduces inflammation, boosts immunity, lowers blood pressure, keeps platelets from sticking together, improves blood vessel tone; alleviates rheumatoid arthritis pain, menstrual cramps, and other PMS
symptoms. It has been commonly used to treat diabetic neuropathy, cyclic mastalgia, eczema, and other skin problems.
