Star Flower Oil has been discontinued. We would recommend booking a 10-minute product advice call with one of our qualified Nutrition Team to discuss your requirements for a possible alternative.

Star flower oil, also known as Borage oil, is extracted from the blue star-shaped borage flower. The active component of borage oil is an essential fatty acid, gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Borage oil is now thought to be a superior source of GLA and contains 22% of the fatty acids, far higher than the amount found in evening primrose oil.

GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid that is metabolised in the body to prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that control many body processes. GLA has been shown to play many essential roles in the maintenance of health.

GLA has been shown to be particularly beneficial for female reproductive health. Traditionally, star flower oil has often been used instead of evening primrose oil for women who are menopausal and also for those around the time of their period.

Star flower oil has also been shown to help with skin health, due to its ability to help support hormonal balance.

Star flower oil has been cold-pressed to ensure the delicate oils are preserved. Vitamin E is added in order to protect the oil from oxidation.

Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) are naturally occurring toxins found in a wide variety of plant species. Our Star Flower Oil is tested regularly for the presence of pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which are always found to be below detectable limits of 1µg/kg.

Orders placed by 2pm Monday - Friday will be despatched the same working day.
