Borage is a plant. Its flowers and leaves, as well as the oil from its seeds are used as medicine.

Borage seed oil is used for skin disorders including eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and neurodermatitis. It is also used for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), stress, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), diabetes, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), alcoholism, pain and swelling (inflammation), and for preventing heart disease and stroke.

Borage flower and leaves are used for fever, cough, and depression.

Borage is also used for a hormone problem called adrenal insufficiency, for "blood purification," to increase urine flow, to prevent inflammation of the lungs, as a sedative, and to promote sweating. Borage is also used to increase breast milk production and to treat bronchitis and colds.

Borage is applied to the skin for infantile seborrheic dermatitis and is also used in a dressing to soften the skin.

In foods, borage is eaten in salads and soups.

In manufacturing, borage is used in skin care products.

How does it work?
Borage seed oil contains a fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA seems to have anti-inflammatory effects. Borage flower might have an antioxidant effect.

I buy all of my supplements based on Consumer Lab reviews. It illustrates the brands that the amount of ingredients that are advertised and also checks the quality of the ingredients in general.

Anyways, I bought this as part of a routine that I've put together to reduce my menstrual pain each month. I have Endometriosis and finding natural ways to combat pain has been a journey. I heard that Borage Oil is great for it and along with my other supplements, I have noticed a big difference in my pain level. It also helps with the flow itself.

I take 1 pill everyday and the week before my period, I take 2 pills in the morning and 2 in the evening. I would definitely recommend this for women who need some help with menstrual relief.

I wondered why the borage oil from NOW Foods was so much cheaper than that of say, Nature's Way or Barlean's or Health from the Sun...I finally got an answer from the company about where they source their oil from. It could have been Canada, New Zealand, or perhaps England, since most of the world's quality borage oil comes from these countries.

It's from China. I'm seeing a trend in their choices now: This borage oil is sourced from China; they use hexane to extract their black currant oil, but don't say so on the label; and their "pure" NKO Krill oil, at least for a while, was really a cheaper blend of krill oils, but they never said so on the label.

So, I went with Nature's Way Borage Oil 1300mg, 60 Softgels instead. It's sourced from Canada. If you don't mind a liquid, you might also check out Nordic Naturals - Nordic GLA (Unflavored) - 4oz. This one is sourced from New Zealand.

But that's why we do these reviews, double check with the manufacturers on ingredients and sourcing, etc.

For those who have used Vit. E oil on their skin, just let me say that Borage Oil works much better and isn't sticky. I just make a small hole in the capsule and there is enough oil for 3 or 4 applications. I either mix it with my moisturizer or put the oil on first then the moisturizer. I am 77 years old and my skin looks really good. Yep, I have some sags but hardly any wrinkles even under my eyes. I stopped taking it orally but am starting back as I'm experiencing some aches and pains in my hips and legs that I never had before. I'm wondering if it was the Borage Oil that was helping. I'm going to try 2 capsules a day and see if it helps. I've never used anything but the NOW brand. I've seen the liquid advertised but would have to keep it refrigerated and I think it stays fresher in the capsules.

I take this along with celadrin for arthritis. My finger joints started swelling and hurting. Someone suggested taking this and within a week there the pain that had started in my right hand had stopped. My left hand was in much worse shape. One knuckle had already swollen and would turn red and get really hot. The pain was to the point that I could not even let my grandkids touch my hand. It took a couple of weeks for the really bad knuckle to stop hurting but now I have no pain at all and can live my life normally.
