Borage officinalis (Borage Oil)
Borage oil (Borage officinalis) and evening primrose oil are rich sources of GLA (gamma linolenic acid). Borage Oil is also rich source of the Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA.) Borage Oil is nature's richest source of GLA.

Studies on Gamma Linolenic Acid suggest that GLA plays an important role in regulating estrogen and androgen action in target cells. The concentrations of neural estrogen and androgen receptors in the body provide the key component as to how the Migraine Defense product works.

GLA presence in the body regulates the hormones prolactin, progesterone, and estrogen. It has been shown that during PMS the conversion of linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid) to gamma linolenic acid (GLA) is impaired. GLA found in borage oil may be essential for the synthesis of prostaglandin.
