GLA is complementary to the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil, and has been shown to prevent the symptoms and nerve degeneration associated with diabetic neuropathy. Purified fish oils are free of many contaminants, such as heavy metals and PCBs, which continue to be a growing problem associated with the consumption of fish.
Optimal ratio of 2:1 EPA to DHA
The pharmaceutical grade omega-3 blend is the only fish oil in the world to have achieved the highest USP standard verifying the quality and consistency of the fish oil
Stringent quality control standards ensure that this highly purified fish oil concentrate is free from lipid peroxides and environmental pollutants, including heavy metals, pesticides, dioxins, PCBs and other harmful compounds
Omega-3 fish oil is sourced from wild anchovies, sardines, and / or mackerel, one of the best natural sources of EPA and DHA
Harvested through sustainable fishing practices
These small fish are less likely to be exposed to toxins because they are short lived, and low on the food chain
Wild fish are superior to farmed fish as they not only have more omega-3s, but contain less saturated fat and no antibiotic or hormone residues
The borage seed oil is cold pressed and purified to remove any organic residuals

Individuals with an allergy to fish or seafood should use caution, though fish oil is rarely allergenic. Both benefit and risk from fish oil has been documented for those at risk of or being treated for cardiac arrhythmias, with close supervision indicated. Pregnant and nursing women are often advised to consume a minimum of 300 mg DHA per day, and although DHA is recognized as essential to neurological development, no dosage recommendations have been made for children or infants. While no specific contraindications exist for GLA during childhood, only maternal supplementation has been used at age less than 1 year.
Drug Interactions: The antihypertensive effect of fish oil may potentially reduce the need or dosage for blood pressure medications, and patients should be closely monitored. Because fish oil and GLA have antithrombotic effects, caution is advised for those on anticlotting, antiplatelet, or anticoagulant medications, or those at high risk of bleeding. At doses of fish oil greater than 3g per day, hyperglycemia has been observed in diabetics and those with hypertriglyceridemia, and close monitoring of patients on antidiabetic medication is recommended. Benefit has been shown when fish oil is taken with statins, SSRIs, anticonvulsant, and cytotoxic medications.
