Black Currant Oil, 500 mg, 100 softgels
Powerful Antioxidant

  • High in GLA (Omega-6 Fatty Acid)
  • Rich Source of Vitamin C
  • Supports Normal Cardiovascular, Immune and Joint Health*

Black Currant Oil is extracted from black currant seeds that produce a valuable nutritional oil containing 14% GLA. Each softgel contains almost double the GLA content of Evening Primrose Oil. This means that 3 softgels a day provides the GLA equivalent of 6 regular Evening Primrose Oil at a more economical price.

Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid. Omega-6 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids: They are necessary for human health but the body can't make them -- you have to get them through food or supplements. Along with omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), they help stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism and maintain the reproductive system.*

Suggested Use:
Take 1 softgel 3 times daily with meals.
