Borage Oil

by Protocol For Life Balance


Borage oil is a rich source of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). GLA is a fatty acid that suports a healthy inflammatory response. GLA has been shown to be important for lung, joint, and eye health. 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. Protocol for Life Balance Borage/GLA is hexane free.
