Concentrated GLA!

Borage Oil is a nutritional oil rich in polyunsaturated fats. Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) are enhanced essential fatty acids. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid‚ it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by dietary sources. Borage Oil is a more concentrated source of GLA than Evening Primrose Oil (EPO). One Borage Oil softgel is equivalent to about 5 standard EPO softgels in GLA content. Research has determined that Borage Oil does not contain harmful levels of Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids (PAs).

      Borage oil by NOW helps me SO much to keep the psoriasis under control. It is a natural inflammatory and high in GLA. I've been taking this since the 80s. This particular brand is a very good quality. I've tried so many others and they just don't work, the Now brand does work. :)

      Pros

      It is what it says it is, unlike other brands. It works very well for skin issues and psoriasis.

      Cons

      I like that the Now brand price is lower than others, but it is still costly! It is worth it, though.

      I like to rotate my Omega 6 oils every so often, and find that Borage oil by NOW is a good change from taking Evening Primrose all the time. Just like with Shampoo, I think rotation can be good for the body.

      Pros

      Fairly large size pill, but still easy to swallow. No aftertaste.

      Cons

      No cons!

      Borage oil by NOW, is a daily staple for me. It is a potent source of GLA, an Omega-6 essential fatty acid. Best if taken with food.

      Pros

      Helpful during restricted calorie intake

      Cons

      The softgels are large and might be difficult for some people to swallow.

      I have both type-1 diabetes and hypothyroid, So I tend to get very dry skin in the winter. I take 3 softgels of Borage Oil by NOW a day, and it definitely makes a difference. If I don't take it, my skin tends to get dry and itchy. It still helps to hydrate the skin.

      I really like Borage Oil by NOW Foods brand. They are very predictable and have high quality, no harmful additives like soy, dairy or wheat. I got this specifically for my eye health, but works for so many other systems in the body.

      Pros

      Quality and price and dosage.

      Cons

      Nothing.

      I ordered Borage Oil by NOW Foods for myself. I like the way my hair seems to have more shine. It makes me feel as if I have lots of hair. My overall skin feels more supple, less dry. Yes, I will be ordering this product again.

      Pros

      Easy to swallow. Just one soft gel per day.

      Cons

      N/A.
