Blackcurrant seed oil is a rich source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which is an omega 6 essential fatty acid (EFA). It also contains alpha-linolenic acid (omega 3), linoleic acid and a broad spectrum of other fatty acids, providing a balanced combination of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-6 and omega-3 EFAs are essential to health, as our body cannot produce them, therefore they must be consumed. Studies continue to confirm their role in supporting healthy skin, cardiovascular health, mental health, hormone balance, joint mobility and cell membrane fluidity.
GLA is an omega 6 fatty acid that is metabolised in the body to prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that control many body processes, including the modulation of inflammation as well as having a positive effect on cardiovascular health. GLA has been shown to be particularly beneficial for female reproductive health.
Blackcurrant seed oil supplies a blend of GLA, linoleic (omega-6), and alpha-linolenic (omega-3) fatty acids, in combination with other essential fatty acids.
