Borage Oil

One of their flagship offerings is Borage Oil, derived from the borage plant, also known as starflower, native to the Mediterranean region. Referred to by the Romans as the ‘herb of joy’, borage found its way to Northern Europe thanks to ancient trade routes. Borage seed oil emerges as a potent nutritional supplement, abundant in essential fatty acids crucial for immune regulation and combatting joint inflammation.

Recent studies indicate promising results in alleviating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, attributed to the abundance of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linolenic acid (LA) in Borage seed oil. GLA, a cornerstone in joint health, facilitates the maintenance of cellular integrity and functionality while orchestrating immune responses through prostaglandin synthesis, effectively quelling inflammation.

Factors such as ageing, dietary deficiencies and viral infections impede the body’s conversion of LA to GLA, making borage seed oil a pivotal intervention. Distinguishing itself from oils like sunflower oil, borage seed oil reigns supreme as the unparalleled source of pure GLA. With additional constituents including tannic, oleic, and palmitic acid, it epitomises a holistic approach to wellness and vitality.
