Health From The Sun Borage Liquid Gold Ingredients
Health From The Sun Borage Liquid Gold includes the following ingredients: Borage seed oil, rosemary extract, mixed tocopherols (natural vitamin E), ascorbyl palmitate (vitamin C) and citric acid to protect freshness.
Health From The Sun Borage Liquid Gold contains Omega-6 fatty acids sourced from an extract of borage oil. Borage oil is extracted from the borage plant which possesses medicinal effects and has been used so for thousands of years. This is one of the best vegetable sources of Gamma Linolenic Acid (or GLA), an Omega-6 fatty acid with numerous health implications.
GLA is converted by the body into to prostaglandin E1, an anti-inflammatory agent. Many of its benefits derive from its anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have documented its benefits against arthritis symptoms (arthritic pain, swelling, morning stiffness), skin and hair problems (eczema, dryness, itching, acne, rosacea, psoriasis, etc), as well as female benefits (alleviating PMS symptoms, infertility, breast cysts, etc.). Emerging evidence seems to indicate GLA may assist people with nerve damage (multiple sclerosis, neuropathy, etc) as well as prevent nerve damage. Borage oil may promote normal brain cell transmission by promoting Serotonin synthesis. Benefits credited to this property include ADHD, depression and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Borage oil may contain chemicals called pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA), which are extremely dangerous as they can cause liver damage, birth defects (in case of pregnant women) and even some types of cancer. You should only use products that are PA-free.
