Borage GLA-240 (Jarrow) Each bottle, 60 softgels. Each softgel is 1,000 mg of borage oil along with 10 mg of another form of vitamin E, gamma tocopherol. This is one serving. Each softgel, provides a gram of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including 220 mg of gamma linolenic acid (GLA/omega-3), 360 mg of linoleic acid (LA/omega-6), 170 mg of oleic acid (omega-9), and 250 mg of other fatty acids. From the borage (Borago officinalis) plant. This is a good source of GLA, especially in combination with flaxseed oil.
"Borage" has been noted in some reviews as being liver toxic, due to the the potential presence of small amounts of pyrrolizidine alkaloids in some parts of the plant. These chemicals are very toxic to the liver. Happily, according to the late Varro Tyler, former professor of pharmacognosy at Purdue University, the seed oil is not where these are found. The data on its benefits as an antiinflammatory and for arthritis are mixed with some showing modest benefit while other studies failed to find any benefit. Suggested use is 1-2 softgels per day with meals. If you wish, after opening, refrigerate, unfrozen.
