GLA deficiency is a major cause of PMS. A healthy body creates GLA via an enzyme from fats such as sunflower oil into prostaglandins, which are hormone-like compounds that regulate blood clotting, inflammation and muscle contraction. Just before menstruation a cascade of prostaglandins are initiated in the uterus which causes the constriction of blood vessels and contractions that cause pain, cramps, nausea, vomiting, bloating and headaches that coincide with PMS. There are good prostaglandins and bad prostaglandins. Painful menstruation and breast pain are caused by low levels of good anti-inflammatory prostaglandins which are made from GLA.
GLA makes your skin luminescent, dewy and glowing. The main reason women's skin becomes dull and thick after menopause is due to the inability to make GLA. Without sufficient GLA the skin becomes dry, rough and wrinkled. GLA is the beautiful skin oil.

Hands down the best beauty oil supplement I have every tried, and I've tried hundreds of products/supplements.
I am 28 yrs old with sun damage, stress from kids, work etc, and this oil helps me look vibrant, with no redness and truly reduces wrinkles!
Still recovering from teenage acne, this really heals from inside out.
Doing research on natural remedies for over 10 years, Borage oil should be in your medicine cabinet if your looking for a solution to less wrinkles!
