Black Currant Seed Oil

Black Currant Seed Oil

What It Is: An oil derived from black currants, which is rich in the fatty acids GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) and alpha-linolenic acid.

Useful For: Shutting down any chronic inflammation, rebuilding connective tissues.*

How It Works: These essential fatty acids help the body produce Series I prostaglandins that aid in turning chronic inflammation on and off healthfully, and stimulating repair of connective tissue. Through this process, they modify blood pressure, clotting functions, cholesterol production and blood circulation, mainly through control of inflammation. 

What To Look For: Primrose or borage oils are often recommended as GLA supplements. However, black currant oil is a much better source, and the one recommended by the World Health Organization. It has twice as much GLA as primrose oil. Although it doesn’t have as much GLA as borage oil, borage oil doesn’t have as much alpha linolenic acid. Black currant oil has the preferred balance of fatty acids.
