- 1000mg Starflower oil (Borage Oil) per capsule
- 50 easy to swallow rapid release softgel capsules
- A natural source of GLA
Holland & Barrett Cold Pressed Starflower Oil provides the fatty acids Linoleic Acid (LA) and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Not all fatty acids can be made in the body, and so must be supplied through diet or supplementation.
Within the body Linoleic Acid is metabolised to GLA, which is essential for the production of certain hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Human breast milk is one of the richest natural sources of GLA, whilst LA can be found in safflower, hemp and sunflower oils.
