Product description

Borage is a native plant of Southern Europe, which has become naturalized all over Europe and the United States. It's fair to say borage "grows like a weed." This useful herb grows abundantly in abandoned lawns and garbage dumps. At one time borage was an essential herb for beekeepers, grown to help bees produce more honey. Traditionally, it was also grown as an ornamental, or boiled as a pot herb. Borage is noted for having a cucumber like flavor and easily recognized by its white prickly hairs and bright blue, star-shaped flowers. Its dark green leaves are gently curved and its fruits consist of dark brown nutlets (seeds) in groups of four. Both Pliny the Elder and Dioscorides claimed that borage was used to "exhilarate the mind", comfort the heart, drive sorrow away, and increase ones general happiness. Borage is thought to be an excellent insect repellant, so it is often grown in gardens to protect from damage insects can cause or used in certain skin care products. Borage flower, stems, and leaves are used in diuretics to support treatment of urinary tract conditions and weak hearts as well as to support circulation to treat varicose veins. The herb, but not the seed oil, induces sweating and sedates. PRECAUTIONS: This herb, leaf and flower contains toxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids and its internal use is prohibited except under the guidance of a qualified health practitioner. Not recommended while pregnant. Not recommended for long term use. To be safe - DO NOT take internally. In magick Borage is ruled by Jupiter and the Air element. It is often used in magic for Courage. Create a Sachet of Borage and carry with you to alleviate anxiety before that big presentation or meeting. Borage tea is said to also induce psychic powers, but do not take this internally before you speak with a medical pratitioner. Also an excellent herb to add to your tarot bag when storing it to keep it charged with psychic energy! Keywords: Courage and Psychic Powers.

Nordic Naturals® Introduces 100% Vegetarian, non-GMO Borage Oil for Natural ... - Sacramento Bee

WATSONVILLE, Calif., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Naturals® introduces Nordic GLA™, a vegetarian borage oil made exclusively from non-GMO cold-pressed borage seed grown in New Zealand. Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is a beneficial omega-6 fatty acid that occurs naturally in plants. Nordic GLA provides essential omega oil nutrition to vegetarian consumers. The product, available in 4 fluid ounces, provides 480 mg of GLA per serving--the highest level among leading brands--and supports radiant skin, hormonal balance, joint function, and optimal body-fat metabolism. In addition to being 100% vegetarian, Nordic GLA contains no gluten, milk derivatives or artificial colors and is flavor-free.

Borage, also known as starflower, has the highest naturally occurring GLA of any known plant. Like other omega oils, GLA is an essential fatty acid that the human body needs but cannot produce on its own. It is one of two key omega oils in the omega-6 family of essential fatty acids. The other is linoleic acid (LA). GLA promotes the body's natural anti-inflammatory response and supports healthy skin, mood and joints, as well as brain and cardiovascular function.

The development of Nordic GLA reflects Nordic Naturals' commitment to offer innovative new omega oil products in order to meet the varying needs of its customers.

According to Keri Marshall, Chief Medical Officer of Nordic Naturals, "Nordic GLA is effective on its own, or in combination with Nordic Naturals fish oil or algae oil omega-3 products. We now offer borage oil, as a stand alone, independent of fish oil, or customers can continue to purchase our borage/fish oil blends that we have had for some time such as Complete Omega 3.6.9™."

Based in Watsonville, CA, Nordic Naturals is committed to delivering the world's safest, most effective omega oils to help provide the essentials of an extraordinary life. Distributing to more than 35 countries, Nordic Naturals offers more...
