. The three best sources of GLA are Borage Seed Oil, Black Currant Oil,
and Evening Primrose Oil.
Borage Seed Oil (usually about 24% GLA)
contains about 5% more GLA than Black Currant Oils,
and more than twice as much GLA per capsule
as Evening Primrose Oil (which usually contains about 10% GLA).
As a result of its high percentage of GLA, when you take Borage Seed Oil,
you end up taking less of the undesirable Omega-6 (lenoleic acid) oils.

Borage Seed Oil is the second of the four most important diet supplements,
which are: Fish Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Green Tea and Magnesium.
