Black Currant Seed Oil
Black Current Seed Oil - 100 Softgels, 250 SoftGels | Pure Encapsulations
If you're looking for a way to revitalize and nourish your joints, Black Currant Seed Oil is the perfect powerhouse. Pure encapsulations offer Black Currant Seed Oil that contains high levels of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), a fatty acid that has multiple physiological roles including support for joint health, immune function, premenstrual comfort, and much more.
Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester reported that GLA helps support healthy cytokine activity, a mechanism that may help to support joint comfort. Furthermore, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial reported statistically significant support for joint health in subjects supplementing with GLA. Another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial performed at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging reported that black currant seed oil supplementation provided immune support in elderly subjects.
Black Current Seed Oil (BCSO) is a natural remedy for the immune system. This product was reported by Nutrition Research Center on Aging to provide immune support in elderly subjects, mainly by supporting prostaglandin (PGE2) production and T lymphocyte function. Prostaglandins play a pivotal role in joint health and comfort. They activate cell signal pathways which can contribute to healthy cytokine activity.
This product of pure encapsulations contains an ingredient known as GLA ( gamma-linolenic acid). Preliminary evidence suggests that GLA may also support healthy estrogen balance and premenstrual comfort, which may be due to its action on both nervous and immune systems.
