Pure Encapsulations Flax / Borage Oil
250 gelatin capsules
Flaxseed oil provides 50% omega-3 fatty acids and borage oil provides 20% GLA. Flaxseed 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 flaxseed and borage oil 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 flaxseed oil has the potential to support healthy lipid metabolism and joint function.
