General Nutrient Support
Essential fatty acids, a part of the PUFA family (polyunsaturated fatty acid), are known as the "essential fats". Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are vital to health and must be obtained through diet because they are not reproduced by the human body.
The Omega-3 long chain fatty acids, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), are found almost uniquely in foods of marine origin. It is the long chain Omega-3s that the body needs to synthesize and ensure proper body function. Clinical studies in the past 30 years have regarded Omega-3 fatty acids as protective, therapeutic and essential for growth and development throughout the human lifecycle.
Borage oil, an Omega-6 fatty acid derived from the plant, Borage officnalis, is the most concentrated source of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA is beneficial for skin moisture and has been popularly used by women suffering from PMS (premenstrual syndrome).
Omega-3 fatty acids and GLA from Borage Oil as a combined formula may have a calming effect by increasing the amount of the body's beneficial anti-inflammatory prostaglandin of the series 1 and 3. Omega-3 fatty acids and GLA together provide optimal nutritional support and are "essential" throughout all stages of life.
Warning: Do not use fish oil if you are allergic to iodine, are using blood thinners or anticipate surgery. Consult with your physician before taking fish oils if you are pregnant or diabetic. Keep out of the reach of children.
