Borage seed oil is extracted as a result of cold pressing of carefully selected seeds of the borage. The low extraction temperature (not exceeding 40º C) allows maintaining the most important active substances in this oil.
Borage seed oil is characterised by:
– high unsaturated fat content (85 g/100 g),
– high polyunsaturated fat content (59 g/100 g),
– the presence of the rare valuable gamma-linolenic acid GLA (17 g/100 g).
Replacing dietary saturated fats with unsaturated fats helps to maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels (mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids are both unsaturated fats).
The beneficial effect occurs with an intake of 10 g LA a day.
Maintaining a healthy state of health requires a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Use and recommended intake:
For direct consumption or as an addition to salads, mayonnaise, dips, and other dishes. It is not recommended to heat the oil.
Suggested serving is 1 tsp / day.
