BORAGE OIL, A RARE AND PRECIOUS OIL RICH IN GLA
At the end of the last century, Dr E. Baruck had been struck by the youthfulness of the faces of southern French women. He reported that he had seen them applying borage oil to their faces and adding it to their food. The role of essential fatty acids has been better understood for some years. We know that human beings couldn't live without them. Like most vegetable oils extracted by first pressing, borage oil is rich in essential fatty acids. Gamma-linolenic acid is so rare that it now exists in sufficient quantities only in two plants: Primrose and, above all, Borage, which has a content of between 16 and 25 %. "The beneficial effect of this substance can be extraordinary and of great benefit to aging organisms" (Dr Kousmine, "Save your Body").
Researchers have recently shown that, although human beings in good health have no problem producing good prostaglandins, aging people (as from 35) have more and more difficulty in producing PG1. There are many reasons for this: stress, diabetes, certain enzymatic deficiencies, certain hepatic disorders or after-effects and many other causes. The ability of the cells in our bodies to produce PG1 prostaglandin normally is fundamental for the balance and health of our whole organism. It ensures that immunitary phenomena occur normally as these become deficient in the case of lack of PG1 prostaglandin. Researchers thought that by providing gamma-linolenic acid by ingestion for organisms that could not produce it themselves, the formation of PG1 would be restored and, at the same time, the physiological and metabolic disorders accompanying this deficiency would be cured.
BORAGE OIL AND CHILDREN
It seems that borage oil is particularly advisable for over-excitable children. These children do have a deficiency in gamma-linolenic acid. Borage oil can also usefully be taken during periods of intense activity during studying and exams. Gamma-linolenic acid is involved in the regeneration of membrane phospholipids of nerve cells.
On average, between 1 and 3 capsules are taken per day for a course of 2 months. It is recommended to take at least two courses a year. After the age of 60, it is advisable to take 1 borage capsule a day every day of your life. For women between puberty and the menopause, 2 capsules should be taken per day at the beginning of the menstrual cycle, for approximately 1 week.
