Borage (starflower seeds) have the highest gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) level of any plant material. Lamberts pure Starflower oil capsules contain a pure, stabilised Borage oil with a guaranteed level of 220mg GLA per capsule making this product one of the strongest available. The advantage of this is that under most conditions, only one capsule need to be taken each day. GLA is a fatty acid needed by the body for the production of certain hormones including the hormone-like substance prostaglandin PGE which takes part in regulating the nervous, cardiovascular and reproductive systems. Recommended for those during their period, going through the menopause, or those concerned with the condition of their skin. This means that each capsule provides the same amount of GLA as found in two 1000mg evening primrose capsules.
We use only the purest starflower oil and these capsules are made in the UK to pharmaceutical GMP standards. Starflower oil is often recommended instead of evening primrose oil to women going through the menopause as well as for women at the time of their period.
