Borage oil owes its medical potentials to its main active ingredient, GLA. A study published in Journal of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine has shown that PMS is caused by lack of GLA, which may be due to an abnormality in women that impedes their bodies to convert linoleic acid into GLA. By supplying borage oil into the body may then increase GLA content and consequently, ease PMS symptoms. Starflower Oil 1000mg is a very rich source of the essential fatty acid Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) at approximately twice the level of Evening Primrose Oil. The body cannot produce GLA therefore it must be obtained in our diets and as we age our natural body levels also reduce.Its properties have several benefits but it has become popular in recent times for women to take at particular times of the month. GLA is an Omega 6 fatty acid which is used by the body to make certain hormones.
