Borage
BorageBotanical Name: Borago officinalis

There are about 50 essential elements our bodies require for everyday health and longevity. They are considered “essential” because our bodies cannot manufacture them; we must acquire them from our diet. Most of these essential elements are vitamins, minerals and amino acids, but two are the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. Borage oil contains about 40% omega-6, and is an excellent source of this vital nutrient.

Borage is harvested for its seed, which is processed to extract oil.

Key Benefits:    

A good source of omega-3 and omega-6, the essential fatty acids necessary for optimum health, maintaining cell structure and producing energy.
Contains high levels of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). 
GLA improves circulation and hormone balance – ideal for women with PMS symptoms.
Borage is more than twice as potent in GLA as evening primrose oil.

Enzol’s Borage oil uses both the cold pressed extraction method or the CO2 super critical extraction methods depending on customer’s requirements.

Available in 18kg pails or 200kg drums.

A good source of omega-3 and omega-6, essential fatty acids (EFAs) necessary for optimal health, maintaining cell structure and producing energy. 
The most concentrated vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids found in nature. 
Source of important nutrients such as phytosteriols and beta-sistosterin, as well as phospholipids, which aid the digestion of fats.
