- Black currant oil is a natural source of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids that help to maintain optimal health
Decreased levels of essential fatty acids (EFAs) have been associated with impaired epithelial cell function, including the loss of moisture in the eyes and skin. EFAs may prevent moisture loss in the eye by increasing the lipid layer of the tear film.
Omega-6 supplementation may increase the level of the metabolite PGE1 in the eye, an anti-inflammatory marker naturally present in the body, and may mediate the activity of collagen producing cells in the skin. Supplementation with 2 g of blackcurrant seed oil for three months significantly improved the moisture content of forearm and cheek skin in 40 healthy adults.
