AOR BORAGE 500 180 V-SOFTGELS
Borage 500 contains organic cold pressed hexane free borage oil, a rich source of the anti-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acid, GLA. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid produced in the body from linoleic acid (LA), an essential fatty acid. Although a high ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is typically thought to cause inflammation, studies have shown that supplementation with GLA has anti-inflammatory effects. This means that GLA is especially effective in treating inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and eczema.
AOR uses borage oil as a source of GLA, as opposed to the more commonly-known evening primrose oil. This is because borage oil containing 2-3 times more GLA, meaning a smaller dose is needed. As part of the AOR Eco Series, Borage 500 is formulated in a carrageenan-free Vegan Softgel, offering optimal absorption and suitability for various dietary preferences or restrictions, while promoting environmental sustainability.
Keeping with our committment to sustainability, all of AOR’s Eco Series product labels and printed materials have been printed on stone paper. Stone Paper is made from reclaimed limestone (calcium carbonate), recycled concrete, and a small amount of HDPE (high density polyethylene). These components are combined in an environmentally friendly manufacturing process under pressure and heat, using no water, dyes, or bleaches. One tonne of stone paper saves 20 trees and 16,000 gallons of water, resulting in a carbon footprint rudction of 67% when compared to pulp paper.
