The Borage plant has been consumed for generations in Europe, but only recently was its seed identified as a potent natural source of the omega-6 EFA derivative, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Borage Oil has a higher concentration of GLA than black currant or evening primrose oils. Its also more cost-effective as Borage seeds are larger and contain more oil. Borage oil is the preferred source of GLA among many nutritionists and natural health practitioners. See benefits below.
