Borago officinalis is a very pleasant plant, with star-shaped blue-purple flowers. The oil extracted from its seeds has many health benefits, particularly for mature women.
What is Olio di Borragine?
Olio di Borragine is a supplement that contains linoleic acid and 20% GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), which are two omega 6 fatty acids, defined essential as they cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through the diet. It is extracted by cold pressing the seeds, so as to preserve intact the natural characteristics of the polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are especially sensitive to temperature. Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that also helps preserve the integrity of the acids contained in the oil, is then added.
