Healthy skin depends solely on consistency and proper dietary intake of certain vitamins, minerals and the right form of essential fatty acids. Omega 6 GLA supplement, such as New Zealand blackcurrant seed oil, is a natural treatment that will balance the production without any side-effects.

Additionally, the human body is constantly exposed to pollution, poor nutrition, ageing, and stress, each of which will increase the risk of oxidative stress. In vitro and in vivo trials have shown the benefits of one major anthocyanin component (cyanidin-3O-glucoside) present in New Zealand blackcurrant for lung health and to relieve allergic reactions1.

The blackcurrant seed oil (BCSO) is highly rich in the essential fatty acids (EFAs), which promote and maintain the human body’s vital functions. The benefit of taking blackcurrant seed oil has been well-documented for years. These benefits derive from the fact that BCSO is an excellent source of the EFAs.

Omega n-6 and omega n-3, both playing a crucial role in brain function and in the normal growth and development of the body. The BCSO supplies a complete and synergistically balanced form of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA; n-6) in combination with at least 12 other fatty acids – including the essential linoleic acid (LA; n-6) and the alpha-linolenic acid, (ALA; n-3). As emphasised on by the late Prof. D.F. Horrobin: “In order to express their normal biological effect, n-3 EFAs must be given with n-6 EFAs.”
