Q.What is the borage oil?
A.The borage, or starflower, plant produces seeds that are a rich source of an essential fatty acid called gamma-linoleic acid, or GLA. The body can convert GLA to an anti-inflammatory compound called prostaglandin E1, or PGE1. Borage oil has a reputation for alleviating symptoms of autoimmune disorders, skin disorders, premenstrual syndrome and cramps, diabetic neuropathy and other inflammatory conditions. The oil is usually taken internally in a capsule, but can also be applied topically. Of the three oils that are good sources of GLA -- borage, evening primrose and black currant seed -- borage has the highest concentration.Omega-6 fatty acids are essential for health, but because the body cannot produce them, they must be obtained through diet or supplements. Some omega-6 fatty acids promote inflammation, but gamma-linoleic acid does not. In fact, GLA may actually decrease inflammation in the body. Borage seed oil is a good source of GLA, and may be useful for treating rheumatoid arthritis. The gamma linoleic acid in borage oil transforms into a hormone-like substance that can block skin inflammations.
