Borage Oil contains 24% of the vital OMEGA-6 fatty acid gommo-linolenic acid (GLA). It is the richest source for this OMEGA-6 oil. Although Borage Oil is far superior to other oils in percentage OMEGA-6, it is difficult to harvest, difficult to stabilize, and therefore expensive and rarely used.
An amino acid and a powerful anti-oxidant, L-ergothioneine assists cell membranes in transporting OMEGA-6 to where it can be used. It also promotes "epikinesis," or skin energy.
Vitamin C is another
anti-oxidant, and it has many well-known positive effects on skin. In the Borage DiabetiCare TM products, it also works hand-in-hand with L-ergothioneine to create the most effective fatty acid transport system possible.
Like vitamin C, vitamin E has a dual purpose in Borage DiabetiCare TM. It too is a potent antioxidant that is known to be very beneficial for the skin. It serves to keep the Borage Oil stable, and consequently highly effective.
