Borage oil is a type of fatty acid that is derived from the seeds of the borage plant. It is a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that is important for maintaining overall health. Borage oil supplements are commonly used to support skin health, reduce inflammation, improve heart health, and regulate hormonal imbalances.
One of the key benefits of borage oil is its ability to support skin health. GLA is an important building block for the production of skin cells, and it can help keep the skin moisturized and hydrated. Supplementing with borage oil can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and can also improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin.
Another benefit of borage oil is its ability to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is a natural response of the body to injury or infection, but chronic inflammation can contribute to the development of various health conditions, such as heart disease and arthritis. GLA has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation throughout the body, making borage oil a useful tool for improving overall health.
In addition to reducing inflammation, borage oil can also help improve heart health. GLA has been shown to have a positive effect on cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and can also help reduce the risk of heart disease. Borage oil can also help regulate blood pressure, making it a useful tool for maintaining cardiovascular health.
Borage oil can also help regulate hormonal imbalances, particularly in women. It has been shown to help relieve symptoms of PMS, such as cramping, bloating, and mood swings, and can also help regulate the menstrual cycle. Women who experience menstrual pain can also benefit from borage oil, as it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce pain.
Finally, borage oil can also help improve joint health. GLA has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation and pain in the joints, making it a useful tool for people with arthritis or other joint conditions.
There aren’t many readily available sources of dietary Borage Oil available, so it is advisable to take a quality supplement.
