There are multiple health benefits one can get from taking borage flower as a herbal supplement. One of the most important nutrients in borage is essential fatty acids, something our body needs for good health. Essential fatty acids must be ingested from the diet. An essential fatty acid deficiency can directly affect mood, internal inflammation and various cellular functions. In order for metabolic processes such as cardiovascular functions to work properly, they depend on the proper levels of essential fatty acids in the body. EFA's also improve hair and nail growth and appearance. Specifically, borage has very high levels of GLA, gamma-linolenic acid, an important essential fatty acid. Borage is often used to boost GLA deficiencies in children as well to ensure proper growth.
Borage flower is also packed with other healthy nutrients that are great for the body. Borage flower is a good herbal supplement for women because it contains high levels of calcium and iron, nutrients many women are deficient in. Potassium, Zinc, B and C vitamins, and beta carotene are packed into the borage plant making it very nutritional.
