Fat has such a negative conotation, but there are some fats that are necessary to staying healthy and even to losing weight, Borage is rich in these essential fats. Borage Oil is a nutritional oil containing over 80% Polyunsaturated Fats. Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA) are enhanced essential fatty acids. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid, it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by dietary sources.

Research has determined that Borage Oil does not contain harmful levels of Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids (PAs).
