What is Starflower Oil? 

Also known as Borage Oil, Starflower Oil is a very rich source of the essential fatty acid Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), in fact it has approximately twice the level found in Evening Primrose Oil. This is important to note as GLA is the active ingredient within the supplement that does the work.

Why take a Starflower Oil Supplement?

The body cannot produce GLA therefore it must be obtained in our diets and as we age our natural body levels also reduce.

Its properties have several benefits but it has become popular in recent times for women to take at particular times of the month. GLA is an Omega 6 fatty acid which is used by the body to make certain hormones.

High quality cold-pressed extraction

We only use cold-pressed Starflower Oil in this supplement.  Some other Starflower Oil capsules on the market often include material that has been extracted using solvents, but we only use mechanically extracted oils as the delicate properties of the supplement can be damaged by other extraction methods.

Screened for safe toxicity levels

The Starflower plant naturally contains pyrrolizidine alkaloid (PA) which is a substance toxic to humans - if ingested in large amounts. You have nothing to be concerned about with our capsules though, as we rigorously screen for safe PA levels. The Starflower Oil that we use is certified to contain levels of less than 1µg of PA per kg of oil. For reference, one of our Starflower Oil 1000mg capsules contains 0.001kg of oil, with the safe guideline being no more than 1µg of PA per adult, per day.
