Also known as Borage Oil, Starflower Oil is a very rich source of fatty acid Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) at approximately twice the level of Evening Primrose Oil. This 500mg capsule provides as much as 22% GLA, which compares very favourably against the 10% level provided by EPO.
Contains only premium 'cold-pressed' extract
Just Vitamins only use premium 'cold-pressed' Starflower Oil in this supplement. Some other Starflower Oil capsules on the market can include material that has been extracted using solvents, but we only use mechanically extracted oils as we prefer natural extraction methods - and we know that you do too!
Its properties have several benefits but Starflower Oil capsules have become popular in recent times for women to take at particular times of the month. Starflower Oil also helps maintain the skin (and the hair and nails) and may be useful for soothing skin irritations.
A natural anti-inflammatory often used for joint discomfort
Starflower Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory, so is often used for joint discomfort, where it is even more effective when taken with fish oils.
If you are looking for a higher strength supplement then you might want to consider our Starflower Oil 1000mg capsule - although the 1000mg capsule is a larger size, so wouldn't be ideal if you can't swallow larger capsules. You can always just take twice as many of the 500mg capsule if you prefer.
