What is starflower oil?
The oil from the starflower is rich in gamma linolenic acid (gla), an omega 6 fatty acid that must be obtained through the diet from linoleic acid which is also found in hemp, safflower and sunflower oils or through supplementation. Starflower oil is extracted from borage seeds, which boasts the highest level of naturally-occurring gla in any plant, a compound which converts to a useful hormone-like substances called prostaglandins in the body.
