Flax/Borage Oil - Flax/Borage oil provides both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for supporting healthy lipid metabolism as well as healthy joint function.

What Is It?

Flax/Borage oil provides both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for supporting healthy lipid metabolism as well as healthy joint function. Flax seed oil provides 50% omega-3 fatty acids and borage oil provides 23% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The main fatty acid in borage oil is GLA, typically in concentrations of 17-25%. GLA is an essential fatty acid that has multiple physiological roles.*

Uses For Flax/Borage Oil

Joint Support: The combination of flax seed and borage oils offers a concentrated source of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA, providing the potential to simultaneously support prostaglandins E1 and E3 (PGE1 and PGE3) more efficiently than either oil alone. Borage oil and flax seed oil have been reported to support healthy joint function. A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial reported statistically significant support of joint health in subjects supplementing with GLA from borage seed oil. A long-term, double-blind, controlled study reported that supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids also helped promote joint comfort.*

Cardiovascular Support: Multiple studies have investigated the effects of supplementing with either GLA or omega-3 fatty acids and have reported that both may be supportive of healthy lipid metabolism and cardiovascular function. Flax seed oil contains linoleic acid and alpha linolenic acid, ALA, an omega-3 fatty acid that can be converted into eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) in the body. EPA is a long chain omega-3 fatty acid that converts to beneficial prostaglandins, such as PGE3, which enhance healthy cardiovasular function. A clinical study indicated that supplementing with GLA was supportive of healthy lipid metabolism and helped promote healthy blood flow.*
