Black Currant Seed Oil - Black currant seed oil supports joint health, immune function and premenstrual comfort.

What Is It?

Black currant seed oil contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that has multiple physiological roles, including support for joint health, immune function and premenstrual comfort.*

Uses For Black Currant Seed Oil

Joint Comfort: Studies have shown that GLA promotes healthy prostaglandin (PGE1) production. Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School reported that GLA helps support healthy cytokine activity, a mechanism that may help to support joint comfort. Furthermore, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial reported statistically significant support of joint health in subjects supplementing with GLA.*

Immune Function: A randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial performed at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging reported that black currant seed oil supplementation provided immune support in elderly subjects, mainly by supporting prostaglandin (PGE2) production and T-lymphocyte function.*

Premenstrual Comfort: Preliminary evidence suggests GLA may support healthy estrogen balance. Black currant seed oil has also been shown to potentially support premenstrual comfort.*

What Is The Source?

Black currant oil is derived from Ribes nigrum seed. Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) is derived from highly refined soybean oil.
