Nutri Star Flower is a Cold Pressed Borage Seed Oil which is extracted from the blue star-shaped borage flower. The active component of borage oil is an essential fatty acid, gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Borage oil is now thought to be a superior source of GLA and contains 22% of the fatty acids, far higher than the amount found in evening primrose oil.
GLA has been shown to play many essential roles in the maintenance of health. GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid that is metabolised in the body to prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that control many body processes. GLA has been shown to be particularly beneficial for female reproductive health. Star flower oil has also been shown to help with skin health, due to its ability to help support hormone balance.
