Info: 100 Softgels
This cold pressed oil is extracted from European-grown Black Currant seeds which produce a valuable nutritional oil containing 14% GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid, an omega-6 fatty acid); each capsule contains about 1.5 times as much GLA as a typical Evening Primrose Oil supplement. Black Currant oil also provides a lot of ALA (Alpha Linolenic Acid: an essential Omega-3 fatty acid, which is also found in flaxseed oil), which many women also want to take, and this saves the trouble of having to take two different supplements to get both. Some women use black currant seed oil to address menopausal symptoms, premenstrual syndrome, painful periods, and tender breasts. GLA may also be able to relieve rheumatoid arthritis symptoms such as joint pain, stiffness, and tenderness and reduce how much NSAID medication is needed for that.
