Borage Oil contains high amounts of the essential fat Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), an Omega 6 fatty acid that is essential for metabolism but cannot be produced in the body. GLA helps support cartilage and joint function, dilates smooth muscle, maintains healthy nerve function and helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already in the normal range. It also alleviates common symptoms associated with PMS. Borage Oil has the highest content of GLA of any plant source.

100% TESTED INGREDIENTS: Since 2007, the FDA has mandated that supplement manufacturers test their ingredients and products. However, it allows manufacturers to perform minimal testing called “skip lot testing” meaning only a fraction of the ingredients are tested. VITAL NUTRIENTS has always exceeded these testing requirements by performing hundreds of tests on all raw materials and finished products at certified U.S. labs, allowing us to minimize potential risk of harm to the consumer.
