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 contains pyrrolizodine alkaloid (PA) which is a toxic substance to humans if ingested in large amounts, you have nothing to be concerned about with our capsules and can be assured that they are rigorously screened for safe PA levels. They are certified to contain levels of less than 1mg per kg of oil with the guideline being no more than 1µg per person per day.

Service rating: Excellent fast service easy website fast delivery and very good packaging
Product: I’m trying starflower for the menopause especially hot flushes. I’ve been taking two a day for a month, I’ve not seen any results yet but I’m going to keep taking them to give them a chance.
Service rating: The product is good and I like the flat packaging. I used to take a Starflower oil product in the 90's and it had very beneficial effects. I haven't been taking it long enough to yet determine how good it is, but I do hope it will help me this time.
Product: Haven't taken it long enough to determine how well I will work. Previous use in the 90's.
I am in my 60's and my hair has gone very thin. I am hoping it will make my hair shine, just as it used to when I took it previously. My general state of health has been poor and I have suffered I'll health over the last 3 years. So I am hoping this will give me a boost in all directions. I would be happy to feed back after 3 months use
Service rating: I got the capsules in a few days, everything came as planned, nice package.
Product: I started taking one capsule a day, 2 weeks before my period. It is the first month that I did it properly, and my PMS felt way lighter than the previously ones. I felt less tender breasts and I had ZERO cramps. I felt that it did soften my PMS. I will try a few more months to see if it is a effect of the capsules, or if it was just coincidence. But I think it is worth trying if you have PMS symptoms that can affect your routine in a negative way.
Service rating: Excellent fast quick service
Product: This is Helping with hot flushes
Service rating: Rapid service, innovative packaging - it's nice to see less plastic bottles. There's also a very good choice of supplements available which is good if looking for something more specific.

Good products with quick dispatch and always at a good price.

Product: Starflower oil is rich in gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential omega-6 fatty acid which maintains the health of cells and reduces inflammation. Regular GLA intake is believed to ease joint pain and reduce swelling. Also present in evening primrose oil, GLA is believed to help reduce menopause symptoms, such as mood swings and hot flashes, due to its anti-inflammatory properties
