Contains 50% omega-3 and 22% GLA
Flax seed oil provides 50% omega-3 fatty acids and borage oil contains 22% GLA. Flax seed oil contains alpha linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid that can be converted into eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, in the body. Because the combination of flax seed and borage oils has the potential to simultaneously support PGE3 and PGE1, it may provide enhanced support compared to either oil alone. Borage oil has been shown to support healthy joint function while flax seed oil has the potential to support healthy lipid metabolism and joint function.*
Flax/Borage oil provides both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for supporting healthy lipid metabolism as well as healthy joint function.*
