Omega Plus® Flax-Borage Oil (120 Capsules)
Omega Plus® is an excellent source of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). It provides omega-3 from unrefined flax oil, as well as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from unrefined borage seed oil. Each capsule provides 65 mg GLA, so three capsules daily is commonly an adequate amount.
This synergistic blend is specially formulated for maintaining healthy skin in those challenged by atopic issues. Reanalysis of 26 clinical studies, including 1,207 patients with eczema and atopic dermatitis, established that GLA has a beneficial effect on itching (pruritus), crusting, oedema, and redness (erythema). The effects became apparent between 4 and 8 weeks after treatment was initiated. However, the magnitude of this effect was reduced with high frequencies of potent steroid use (Morse & Clough, 2006).
GLA may also assist fertility by having a beneficial effect on cervical mucous. GLA may be contraindicated, however, in late pregnancy and for acne sufferers (Dugoua et al., 2006).
GLA supplementation is of particular benefit to individuals when diet* or genetic factors interfere with the normal EFA conversion process, which may occur in around 15% of the population.
*High alcohol and coffee intake, plus low vitamin B6 and zinc levels, are common traits in people with low rates of GLA conversion from omega-6.
2 to 4 capsules daily, with food.
Post-menopausal women and those looking for benefits from omega-3 and lignans for cardiovascular health.
