What is Starflower Oil?
The oil from the Starflower is rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an omega 6 fatty acid that must be obtained through the diet from linoleic acid which is also found in hemp, safflower and sunflower oils or through supplementation. Our Starflower Oil is extracted from borage seeds, which boasts the highest level of naturally-occurring GLA in any plant, a compound which converts to a useful hormone-like substances called prostaglandins in the body. Starflower Oil provides at least twice as much GLA as the same amount of Evening Primrose Oil. With 220mg of high-quality omega 6 per capsule, our high-quality Starflower Oil can be taken by women of all ages throughout the month and particularly if suffering from PMS or around the menopause.
Who is this for?
For women of all ages, Starflower Oil may be particularly useful not only around menstruation but also going into the menopause. It has also traditionally been used for skin health. In the normal daily diet there are very few sources of GLA, the active ingredient in Starflower Oil - supplementing can fill that gap.
