Black Currant Oil

( Nature's Sunshine )



Black Currant Oil [Immune] contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) along with other important polyunsaturated fatty acids.
 
Fatty acids are involved in many bodily functions, such as maintaining body temperature, insulating nerves, cushioning and protecting tissues and creating energy. These essential fatty acids are precursors of prostaglandins, which must be present for functions involved with blood vessels, maintaining arterial pressure already within the normal range, metabolizing dietary cholesterol, activating T-lymphocytes, protecting against platelet aggregation and other functions. Before the discovery of black currant oil, the only other known sources of GLA were mother’s milk and evening primrose oil.
 
Each black currant oil capsule provides 40–45 mg GLA per serving, that’s 12 percent  GLA (more than evening primrose oil). It contains two essential fatty acids—linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid—and the unique stearidonic acid.
