Black Currant Seed Oil provides a rich, naturally occurring source of GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid), an important essential fatty acid. Essential fatty acids are necessary for regulating cellular processes, such as regulation of enzymes, cell-signaling pathways, gene expression, and oxidation of fats. They also influence membrane function and integrity, making prostaglandins, and producing hormones.
Black Currant Seed oil provides Omega 3 fatty acid (12-14%), Omega 6 fatty acid (15-20%), and Omega 9 fatty acid (5%). Omega 9 fatty acids, a monounsaturated fatty acid, has been shown to increase HDL (“good”) cholesterol and decrease LDL (“bad”) cholesterol as well as eliminate plaque buildup in the arteries, which may cause heart attack and stroke.
Black Currant Seed Oil is a natural source of essential fatty acids and is highly recommended for individuals who practice an animal free diet.
