The Black Currant plant (Ribes nigrum) contains oil-rich seeds from which Black Currant oil is derived. Black Currant oil contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is an Omega-6 essential fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1).
The highest quality Black Currant Oil is extracted without hexane or other chemical solvents. Instead, it is “cold processed”, using the expeller-press method of extraction, which simply squeezes the oil out of the seed without heat.
Black Currant oil supplements are available in softgel capsules.
