Newton-Everett® is driven to deliver highly potent, ultra-pure nutritional products with uncompromised quality. Our new premium-grade liquid extracts and liquid softgels are designed to provide an ideal delivery vehicle for maximum absorption and enhanced bioavailability.

This guarantees purity from mercury, lead, PCB’s and other contaminants. Independent microbiological testing is also performed to ensure supplement purity and safety.
 
Bioavailable:
 
The bioavailability of nutritional supplements is an often-overlooked factor. Bioavailability basically means “the proportion of a nutrient or bioactive ingredient that was absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract” for use or storage in the body. After passing through the intestinal wall lining, the ingredients enter your bloodstream and find their way to their target organ or body system where they go to work performing their specific duties to support your health and make you feel great.

What is Borage Oil?

Borage herb (Echium amoenum) is a large annual plant of the Boraginaceae family, which grows in most of Europe and in northern Iran. The borage flower is used as a medicinal herb in France and other countries. Today, Borage Oil, also knows as Starflower Oil, is often employed as a skin replenishment treatment, where it is thought to help lock in moisture and retain the smoothness of young skin. It can also be used topically to treat conditions such as eczema and other skin rashes, due to its innate healing properties, and as a component in a poultice for skin wounds.

One further positive aspect of borage oil regards its high content of GLA. GLA can be converted by the body into prostaglandins. Prostaglandins have been shown in various studies to help reverse the effects of imbalanced levels of fatty acids in the body, which can contribute to conditions such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. It is possible that supplementing with borage oil may help to prevent or at least delay the onset of these conditions. Preliminary findings also indicate that GLA may be effective in reversing neuropathy in diabetic patients, which is when nerves degenerate causing numbness and pain. For this reason, it is recommended that all diabetics supplement their diets with a good source of gamma linolenic acid. And there is no better source of GLA then borage oil.

What Happens To Gamma Linolenic Acid In Our Body?

All the fat in our body is digested in the small intestine into fatty acids and triglycerides. So like all other fats, GLA with triglyceride from borage oil is absorbed by small intestine after deacylation. Within the mucosal cells of small intestine, the reacylation occurs and GLA enters the lymphatics in the form of fat globules (Chylomicron). Lymphatics drain it into blood vessels from where it is circulated to cells all over the body.
