Protocol for Life Balance

Borage Oil

Borage oil is a rich source of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA is a fatty acid that supports a healthy inflammatory response. GLA has been shown to be important for lung, joint, and eye health. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid, it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by dietary sources.

Borage Oil is produced from the seeds of the borage plant (Borago officinalis), a member of the Boraginaceae family. Borage Oil is a potent source of the long-chain polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

GLA is recognized as one of the "good" essential fatty acids used to enhance cell membrane fluidity and function. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid, it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by dietary sources.

GLA supports a balanced inflammatory response. In the past, many consumers relied on Evening Primrose oil (EPO); however, Borage Oil has now been found to be an even richer source of GLA. Borage Oil has been used for hundreds of years, and has been shown to be important for lung, joint, and eye health.

To ensure absolute purity, Protocol For Life Balance TM Borage/GLA is produced using a mechanical expeller press that does not utilize solvents.
