Borage Oil is a nutritional oil rich in polyunsaturated fats. Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linolenic 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. Borage Oil is a more concentrated source of GLA than Evening Primrose Oil (EPO). One Borage Oil softgel is equivalent to about 5 standard EPO softgels in GLA content.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 softgel 1 to 2 times daily, preferably with meals. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Omega-3 Fish or Flax Oil and Tru-E BioComplex.
Softgel capsule (gelatin, glycerin, water).

iHerb Customer Reviews
Borage oil is a useful supplement in the treatment of skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis. I am a Nurse Practitioner and I tell my clients with these conditions to take 1-3 softgels of 1,000mg Borage oil daily. We have seen amazing results in lessened itchiness and scaling. I also recommend it for PMS and menopausal symptoms.
Good product from Now Foods. I suffer from hair loss due to menopause, Hashimoto's Hypothyroid disease and Seborrheic Dermatitis. I have been taking this along with Saw Palmetto extract to try to slow down hair loss. It seems to be working. After 3 weeks I am losing much less hair in the shower.
Skin is feeling softer
Posted by Rena61 on Jul 25, 2015
It is winter, and I have not had the first sign of winter dryness on my skin as yet. Hair is feeling a little silkier as well. I have two patches of eczema, time will tell if the borage oil will help clear them up. Update: Did not clear up my eczema, so will not purchase again. That was the main reason I was taking it. However, if my skin shows dryness next winter I may rethink purchasing it again. I was also taking fish oil at the same time, so I will see if it was the fish oil or borage oil that helped with dryness in the winter.
I take for pyrroles
Posted by grainfreeliving on Jul 22, 2015
I was recommended to take a GLA as part of my pyrroles treatment and I changed to this one after takiing EPO for some time. I love it, it seems to be doing its job.

good for hormonal balance
Great mixed with skin cream

I can tell a big difference in the way my skin looks when I mix a little of this oil right from the capsule into my night cream. One capsule will last 3-4 nights. I just puncture the capsule with the point of a surgical blade and squeeze out the amount I want each time. I was recently in the hospital, no makeup of course, and several of the nurses and doctors commented on how nice my skin is and said they could not believe how young I look for 76. I also take one capsule a day along with an Alaska Salmon Oil capsule and a flax seed oil capsule. 2 years later:....Well, I'm 78 now and my skin looks better than it did 2 years ago. I can't believe how wonderful Borage Oil is for the skin. I take one a day and I mix it into my face cream
