Vital Nutrients Black Currant Seed Oil Gelcaps (100’s)


Vital Nutrients Black Currant Seed Oil is a key source of the essential fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic acid). I prefer it to Evening Primrose Oil – it is less expensive and has both omega-3 and omega-6 fats. GLA cannot be produced in the body but must come from food. Useful for PMS, joint and cartilage function, metabolism, dry eye and boosting the immune system.

Omega 6 fats are often deficient in those eating healthy, Paleo-style diets. GLA helps maintain normal cholesterol levels and is good for the skin/scalp. It helps dilate (relax) “smooth muscle” of blood vessels and the bronchi (may be helpful for asthma and COPD).


Each 100 softgel capsule Vital Nutrients Black Currant Seed Oil has 535 mg of oil containing 70 mg. GLA.

Recommended dosage: 1-2 capsules 2-3 times daily. Can be taken long-term.

NOTE: This is NOT Black (Cumin) Seed Oil, but the oil from the seeds of the Black Currant fruit.
