The Sun's Borage Oil 300 - Product Review  Hot

 
Borage Oil 300

 

Description

As the label implies, Health From The Sunís Borage Oil 300 supplies 300 milligrams (mg) of the omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). However, it also affords users an additional 480mg of the omega-6 Linoleic-acid, and 190mg of the omega-9, Oleic acid. Borage Oil 300 is a convenient means for obtaining the benefits of Borage Oil and its most beneficial constituent, GLA. Borage Oil is the richest source of gamma-linoleic acid, containing up to 20-26%. GLA converts into PGE1 - a hormone-like substance that exhibits certain anti-inflammatory, blood-thinning, and blood vessel-dialating properties - when ingested.


Pros

Borage Oil 300 addresses the importance of essential fatty acids by supplying health conscious consumers with a cost-effective and potent source of these critical nutrients, principally gamma-linoleic and linoleic acids. Whatís more, Health From The Sun ensures that youíre obtaining the highest quality oil from the highest quality borage seeds, without chemical processing.

Cons

Borage Oil is not a full-spectrum essential oil supplement. It does not contain omega-3 fatty acids, or alpha-linoleic acids.

Some people may experience gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, flatulence, diarrhea and bloating.

As well, borage oil may be immunosuppressive in some individuals and has the potential to interact with some medications. These include; neuroleptic agents, anticoagulants, and those possessing anti-platelet activity, like aspirin and other NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).


Is it for you?

For the majority of adults, essential fatty acid intake is lacking. In fact, studies suggest that some 80% of Americans are deficient in these important nutrients.

Western societies are especially prone to GLA deficienty as a result of poor diet (high fat and processed foods) and glucose intolerance. Thus, Borage Oil can be beneficial for all individuals wishing to improve their current health status, or for those suffering from nutritional inadequacy.

In the case of disease conditions, Borage Oil may be indicated (in some cases) for:

  • atopic dermatitis and uremic skin conditions
  • rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory disorders, such as Sjogren's syndrome and ulcerative colitis
  • osteoporosis
  • diabetic neuropathy
  • acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)
  • hypertension and elevated serum lipids

Borage oil has even shown promise in cancer treatment (i.e. cerebral gliomas).

Dosage & Directions
