BORAGE IS AN IDEAL WAY TO GET WHAT YOU NEED

Borage; also known as starflower; is a plant that was traditionally cultivated for culinary and beneficial uses. However, today commercial cultivation of borage is mainly for the oilseed. The seed oil of borage is desired as a source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is an essential fatty acid in the form of Omega-6.

Borage is the highest known plant-based source of GLA, generally containing a concentration of approximately 24% GLA. This is important because essential fatty acids are necessary for human health, but the body can't make them - they must be absorbed through food or supplementation.

How Can Borage Benefit You?
