Blackcurrant Seed Oil is a concentrated source of GLA, the omega-6 fatty acid also found (in lower levels) in evening primrose oil. GLA is converted directly to DGLA, which is used in the body to produce anti-inflammatory eicosanoids including the PGE1 series of prostaglandins. Blackcurrant seed oil may therefore be helpful for balancing inflammatory processes in the body.
Blackcurrant seed oil supplies a blend of GLA, linoleic (omega-6), and alpha-linolenic (omega-3) fatty acids, in combination with other essential fatty acids.
