Black Currant Seed Oil-GLA contains an abundance of natural antioxidants, tocopherols, and beta-carotene. Black currant seed oil supports eye health, cardiovascular health, and women’s health (PMS).*
The seed of black currant (Ribes nigrum) is a natural source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that's not often found in nature. GLA provides support to the structure of the heart, retina, blood vessels, and more. It also supports women's health, including the challenging symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Additionally, black currant seed oil provides a balance between Omega-6 and Omega-3 (stearidonic acid) fatty acids, making this an ideal choice for everyone, particularly vegetarians, or anyone trying to boost their intake of essential fatty acids.
Powerful support for strong heart, blood vessels, eyes, skin, and other structures.

Q: Can’t I get GLA from foods?
A: No, you cannot – Black Currant Seed Oil-GLA is really the best choice. While there are other seed oils, the essential fatty acid ratios and price make Black Currant Seed Oil-GLA the premiere choice. These other sources do not provide Omega-3 fatty acids. Keeping a proper balance of fatty acids in your regimen is important.

Q: What is supercritical CO2 extraction, and why is it important?
A: Supercritical CO2 extraction uses carbon dioxide in liquid form, which is odorless, tasteless, and non-toxic. Supercritical CO2 extraction works at very low temperatures, preserves sensitive plant constituents, and avoids the risk of biologically active components being destroyed by heat and oxidation.
CO2 extracts are 100% natural, authentic, highly concentrated and offer the highest level of key active constituents that are found in the plant or oil.
