GLA and borage oil have been researched scientifically in MS, neuropathies and inflammatory disease e.g. rheumatoid arthritis. Borage oil contains both GLA and LA therefore, is more effective than LA alone. Borage oil has the highest percent yield of GLA.
The biological effectiveness of GLA however depends on the amount in position 2 (known as Sn2) within dietary oil molecules as well as the percentage of GLA. In other words, if GLA is in the “right place” it can be more biologically available (bioavailable) and more effective than other GLA containing oils.
- Not all borage oil is the same
- Not all GLA containing oils are the same
- Not all GLA containing oils produce the same biological effects
Sn2® borage oil is both carefully selected and of pharmaceutical grade and manufacture to ensure it is safe at the dose specified. 15 ml a day provides a minimum of 3 grams a day GLA of which at least 40% will be highly bioavailable at the Sn2 position.
