Essential fatty acids are necessary for health, but the body is unable to produce them so they have to be obtained through diet or supplement form. Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids play a key role in brain function, as well as normal growth and development.
The body ‘needs’ essential fatty acids. This is because consuming them reduces the rate of absorption so we feel fuller for longer. Not only this but, they also help transport important fat-soluble vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K around the body all of which are necessary to help the body to perform optimally.
Starflower (Borage) oil also has been shown to possess a wide range of therapeutic properties, most notably its ability to reduce the pain associated with PMS, as well as to help reduce skin irritations and conditions. This is due to its anti-inflammatory benefits.

Starflower Oil in the Press
Health Article: Daily Mail: What's the best oil for PMS?
Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) is thought to affect about 90 per cent of women at some point in their lives, with a significant proportion of these suffering regularly from severe and debilitating symptoms.
Evening primrose oil (EPO) is often advocated for PMS. A component in EPO by the name of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) seems to be converted into molecules that seem to counteract biochemical changes in the body that might underlie PMS.
Weight for weight, starflower oil contains about twice as much GLA as EPO, which is why it is often said to be a superior treatment for PMS.
Some women do indeed find that treatment with EPO (at a dose of about 1g, three times a day) or starflower oil (at a dose of about 500 mg, three times a day) can help control their symptoms of PMS.
