Also known as Borage oil, starflower oil is pressed from the seeds of the starflower plant and is a rich source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6-fatty acid. GLA has several health benefits for both men and women, including heart function, skin appearance and vision. GLA produces prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that can help regulate the immune system and prevent inflammation. It acts as a hormone regulator that starflower oil benefits female-specific health conditions such as PMS and menopause. Benefits:
Due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, borage oil containing GLA can be helpful for treating a wide range of both short- and long-term illnesses, including:1. Hormone balance
Fluctuating hormone levels manifest themselves in several different ways and can severely interfere with women's daily lives. Many of the symptoms commonly associated with PMS and menopause, such as mood swings, breast tenderness and skin changes, are triggered by these hormone imbalances
. Studies show that GLA helps to balance hormone levels by regulating the production of prostaglandins, which are hormone-like chemical messengers involved in the body's inflammatory processes such as swelling, stiffness and pain. 2. Heart health
Essential fatty acids are vital to heart health. Although women are statistically less at danger of heart disease compared to men, women aren't completely free of risk. A regular intake of essential fatty acids can help to support heart health and improve blood circulation in women and men. It is thought that the anti-inflammatory benefits of GLA help to reduce the risk of heart disease
, particularly when paired with an omega-3-supplement, and may also help to prevent fatty plaque build-ups along artery walls. 3. Skin
Regulating prostaglandin levels may help to prevent inflammatory skin conditions and regulate the moisture level of the skin. One study found that daily supplementation with starflower oil over a twelve week period significantly reduced skin reddening
(by an average of 40%) when compared to a placebo. It also found that participants supplementing with starflower oil lost 10% less water from the skin and had less roughness and scaling
. 4. Visual health
As women get older, eyesight tends to become an issue, with many people experiencing a downturn in their visual health during later life. One study found that people who supplemented with GLA experienced a decrease in the symptoms of an irritating and uncomfortable condition called dry eye
Several studies have examined the potential benefits of starflower oil for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. One placebo-controlled trial found that daily supplementation of starflower oil over six months reduced joint tenderness and morning stiffness by 64%
compared to a placebo. Evening Primrose Oil:
Evening primrose oil has been called the most sensational preventive discovery since vitamin C. It contains the pain relieving compound phenylalanine and is increasingly being used to treat chronic headaches
. It has so many preventive and therapeutic qualities that it has become a standard part of recommendations of many herbalists for maintaining youth and preventing disease.
Evening primrose oil contains a high concentration of a fatty acid called GLA and it is this fatty acid that is largely responsible for the remarkable healing properties
of the plant. In fact, evening primrose contains one of the highest concentrations known of this important substance and only a few other plants contain it at all. This makes it an important medicinal herb, and as studies continue, the list of benefits will likely become much longer. The gamma-linoleic acid
, linoleic acid and other nutrients in this oil are essential for cell structure and improve the elasticity of the skin. These fatty acids also help to regulate hormones and improve nerve function aiding problems ranging from PMS to migraine headaches. The hormone balancing effect contributes to healthy breast tissue.Benefits:
- Relieves the discomforts of PMS, menopause, menstruation, endometriosis and fibrocystic breasts
- Eases the joint pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis
- Prevents diabetes-associated nerve damage
- Reduces the symptoms of eczema
- Helps treat acne and rosacea
- Nourishes nails, scalp, and hair
Bioflavonoids are a group of plant pigments that are responsible for the colors of many flowers and fruits. Citrus bioflavonoids are those bioflavonoids, or flavonoids, found in citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, etc. Bioflavonoids are also plant compounds that demonstrate vitamin like properties and exhibit superior antioxidant activity like
Para Amino Benzoic Acid (PABA):
- Strengthens capillaries and regulates their permeability
- Reduces inflammation
- Enhances immune system
- Essential for proper absorption and use of vitamin C
- Works as an antioxidant by keeping vitamin C from being oxidized
PABA is a naturally-occurring, water-soluble compound and as a cofactor of the vitamin B complex (associated with folate). One very interesting application for this versatile substance is its potential to restore hair to its natural color and important for healthy skin. It protects the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
As an antioxidant, it helps to protect our skin from or reverse the damage caused by free radicals which are responsible for premature aging.It also helps to promote better hair health by protecting the follicles from free radical damage. PABA as an antioxidant B vitamin which could:
B â Complex Vitamins:
- Slows cross-linking;
- Enhances flexibility;
- Promotes membrane fluidity;
- Provides protection against ozone, secondhand smoke and other air pollutants;
- Alleviates the inflammation of arthritis; and
- Restores the original color of hair in perhaps 10-25% of cases
B vitamins are used in the body individually to help release energy from food. They are also of extreme importance to the nervous system. B vitamins are required by the metabolic pathways that generate the energy. Every system in the body depends on these vitamins for their role in energy production, and a deficiency of even a single B vitamin can have widespread and serious health consequences. Deficiencies of B complex vitamins are too numerous to mention here, but the most serious consequences include heart disease (B6
), depression, neuropathy, high cholesterol, cataracts, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis and fatigue to name only a few. Biotin:
Biotin, as referred to as Vitamin H is part of the Vitamin B complexgroup and might be interesting to some people since one of the most visible symptoms of shortage of this vitamin is thinning of hair which can lead to total hair loss. Vitamin H is used in cell growth, the production of fatty acids, metabolism of fats, and proteins. It plays a role in the Kreb's cycle, which is the process in which energy is released from food.Vitamin C:
Vitamin C is required in the synthesis of collagen in connective tissue, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones, carnitine, and conversion of cholesterol to bile acids and enhances iron bioavailability. Ascorbic acid is a great antioxidant and helps protect the body against pollutants.Vitamin E:
Vitamin E is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that includes eight naturally occurring compounds in two classes designated as tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, protects your cells from oxidation, and neutralizes unstable free radicals, which can cause damage. This is done by the vitamin E giving up one of its electrons to the electron deficient free radical, making it more stable. While Vitamin E performs its antioxidant functions, it also protects the other antioxidants from being oxidized.Beta-carotene:
Beta-carotene is one of a group of red, orange, and yellow pigments called carotenoids. Beta-carotene and other carotenoids provide approximately 50% of the vitamin A. Beta-carotene, like all carotenoids, is an antioxidant. An antioxidant is a substance that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules; it protects the body from free radicals. Free radicals damage cells through oxidation. Eventually, the damage caused by free radicals can cause several chronic illnesses. Beta-carotene is also in used in malnourished (underfed) women to reduce the chance of death and night blindness during pregnancy, as well as diarrhea and fever after giving birth.Vitamin K:
Vitamin K can be produced in the intestines and this function is improved with the presence of cultured milk, like yogurt, in the diet, Vitamin K is classified as a fat-soluble vitamin. Vitamin K is found in nature in two forms - K1, also called phylloquinone, and is found in plants and vitamin K2, also called menaquinone, which can be synthesized by many bacteria. Vitamin K3, menadione, is a synthetic form of this vitamin which is manmade. Vitamin K is used in the body to control blood clotting and is essential for synthesizing the liver protein that controls the clotting. It is involved in creating the important prothrombin, which is the precursor to thrombin - a very important factor in blood clotting. It is also involved in bone formation and repair. In the intestines, it also assists in converting glucose to glycogen; this can then be stored in the liver. There are some indications that Vitamin K may decrease the incidence or severity of osteoporosis and slow bone loss.Vitamin D3:
is also referred to as Cholecalciferol and can rightly be called the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D helps with increasing the absorption of calcium, assists in bone growth and the integrity of bone and promotes strong teeth. It also helps regulate the amount of phosphorus in the body as well as assisting in a healthy heart and nervous system. In some recent studies, it has also shown great promise in assisting psoriasis, the immune system, thyroid function as well as normal blood clotting.
Vitamin D helps with increasing the absorption of calcium, assists in bone growth and the integrity of bone and promotes strong teeth.Elemental Magnesium:
Magnesium plays an important role in at least 300 fundamental enzymatic reactions and for that reason is of vital importance in our health. Magnesium helps with formation of bone and teeth and assists the absorption of calcium and potassium. Where calcium stimulates the muscles, magnesium is used to relax the muscles. It is further needed for cellular metabolism and the production of energy through its help with enzyme activity. It is used for muscle tone of the heart and assists in controlling blood pressure.Elemental Iron:
Iron is essential element carrying oxygen, forming part of the oxygen-carrying proteins - hemoglobin in red blood cells and myoglobin in muscles. It is also a component of various enzymes and is concentrated in bone marrow, liver, and spleen. The production of hemoglobin and myoglobin (the form of hemoglobin found in muscle tissue) requires this nutrient. It is also needed for the oxygenation of red blood cells, a healthy immune system and for energy production.Elemental Zinc:
Zinc is one of the minerals women should never be without and has such a wide application in human health that everybody should ensure that they obtain enough of this humble trace element. It is necessary for a healthy immune system, and is also of use in fighting skin problems such as acne, boils and sore throats. It is further needed for cell division, and is needed by the tissue of the hair, nails and skin to be in top form. Zinc is further used in the growth and maintenance of muscles.Elemental Manganese:
Manganese is one of those humble trace minerals so often overlooked, yet essential for health. It enables the body to utilize vitamin C, B1
, biotin as well as choline. It is thought to also help neutralize free radicals as well as being of assistance in preventing diabetes and needed for normal nerve function.
Manganese is also indicated in stimulating growth of the connective tissue and is also thought to be of importance in brain functioning.Elemental Copper:
Copper is also needed in relatively small amounts; some discussions are under way on the optimum need of this mineral. If large amounts of copper are present, then zinc and vitamin C is reduced in the body. Copper is required in the formation of hemoglobin, red blood cells as well as bones, while it helps with the formation of elastin as well as collagen - making it necessary for wound healing.Elemental Selenium:
Selenium is a trace mineral that is essential to good health but required only in small amounts. Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Free radicals are natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system.Elemental Chromium:
Chromium is an essential nutrient required for normal sugar and fat metabolism and works primarily by potentiating the action of insulin. It is present in the entire body but with the highest concentrations in the liver, kidneys, spleen and bone. It is also required for sugar and fat metabolism. Side Effects:
The product is possibly safe for most adults. There is no disadvantage associated with the product if taken under the recommended usage.
However, some are: dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and diarrhea.Special Precautions & Warnings:
