Product Overview

Description
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • 140 mg GLA
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement

The double strength softgel has twice the Black Currant Oil (1,000 mg) as in our regular strength product (500 mg).

Black Currant Oil is extracted from Black Currant Seeds to produce a valuable nutritional oil containing 14% GLA. The Omega-3, Alpha Linolenic Acid and the Omega-6, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) are both considered essential fatty acids. Although the body can manufacture GLA from other dietary omega-6 fatty acids, GLA can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly through dietary sources.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 softgel 2 times daily with food. Consider taking these other NOW products: Omega-3 Fish Oil or Flax Oil and Advanced Gamma E Complex.

Other Ingredients

Softgel capsule (gelatin, glycerin, water).

Not manufactured with yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.

Warnings

Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.

Store in a cool, dry place after opening. Please recycle.

Good Strength But Not Cold Pressed

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Dec 07, 2015

This product has excellent strength. I contacted NOW Foods to get a little bit more information about product: "Countries of origin of black currants are Netherlands, China, and U.S. The black currant seed oil is cold expeller pressed and solvent extracted in several steps. The solvent is removed in purification leaving behind undetectable levels of impurities at ppb levels (parts per billion). Oil naturally contains about 3% Stearidonic acid and about 10-12% oleic acid." I think that this is a ok product. Black currant oil is excellent for joints, skin, hair, dermatitis, cholesterol, PMS and menopause symptoms, boosts immune system, lowers high blood pressure. Blackcurrant seed oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a type of omega-6 fatty acid that’s been said to help ease inflammation in the body. GLA may help reduce joint pain, stiffness, and soreness in people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Black currant oil's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects are known to help ease the symptoms of psoriasis. Taken orally, blackcurrant seed oil can help slow the growth and development of psoriasis patches. It also can be applied directly to dry, itchy skin, just open the capsule and apply the oil. I hope you find this review helpful. Please, also visit my page for more reviews, especially for new customers to iHerb. Enjoy your iHerb journey!

terrible headaches

Posted by Reviewer2169605 on Aug 13, 2014

This makes me feel really unwell. I'm going to go back to Evening Primrose which does the same thing and works well for me. As a side note, I used to use another very expensive brand of Black Currant and had no side effects, so I think it's the gelatin, and possibly the process of extraction that are the issues.
