NutriVital Starflower Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the blue flowers of the starflower plant, also known as borage. Borage grows wild throughout North Africa and Europe and has long been used in traditional medicine.
The fatty acid composition of starflower oil is unique and includes the highest known concentration of GLA of any plant known to man – twice as much as evening primrose oil. This makes it a popular choice to help with swollen or damaged joints, and skin health.
GLA is also often recommended for the ladies to take if they suffer from symptoms experienced at certain times of the month.
GLA plays an important role in maintaining the epidermal barrier of the skin, which keeps moisture locked in and irritants out. Studies suggest that internal and topical application of starflower oil may be beneficial to various skin conditions.
