Blackcurrant Seed Oil
Helps Lower the Risk of Heart Disease!
The GLA and Omefa-3 Fatty acid content found in Blackcurrant Seed Oil has been shown to improve cardiovascular health in a number of ways:
- Lowering levels of 'Bad' LDL Cholesterol (which can lead to Arteriosclerosis)
- Increasing levels of 'Good" HDL Cholesterol
- Inhibiting platelet aggregation (that lead to blot clots)
- Blood vessel dilating effects (improving blood flow and circulation)
Together these effects promote correct cardiovascular health and lower risk factors for developing heart disease, the number one disease causing death in America affecting over 26.5 million people (2011).
Healthy Cholesterol Levels That Lower the Risk of Heart Disease
Lowering LDL (Bad) Cholesterol:
Preventing Plaque Up and Atherosclerosis
Too much Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in the blood slowly builds up in the arteries that flow to the heart and brain. This build up forms hard plaques that cause the arteries to narrow and become less flexible (known as atherosclerosis). If a clot forms in these arteries, it can block the flow of blood to the heart and/or brain resulting in a heart attack or stroke respectively.
GLA and various other Omega-3 fatty acids, have demonstrated abilities to lower cholesterol, effectively reducing the risk of these dangerous conditions. One study from Japanese researchers found that rats receiving GLA supplements gained up to 18% less cholesterol compared with rats receiving the control treatment!

Increasing HDL (Good) Cholesterol:
Helping Remove Bad Cholesterol From the Arteries
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is known as "good" cholesterol. Higher levels of HDL appear to have protective qualities against heart disease while low HDL levels increase the risk of heart disease. It is thought that HDL cholesterol moves cholesterol away from the arteries and to the liver where it can be processed out of the body. Some experts believe that HDL can even remove excess cholesterol from arterial plaque, slowing its buildup.
GLA has been shown to help not only decrease the the levels of bad LDL cholesterol but to also increase the levels of good HDL cholesterol. One study from researchers at the University of Chile found supplemental GLA (like that sound in Blackcurrant Seed Oil) was able to improve HDL cholesterol levels in humans by 22%!

Inhibiting Platelet Aggregation and Formation of Dangerous Blood Clots
Platelet's are a critical part of normal human health. However, if there are too many or they aggregate (join together) to much they may form blood clots (thrombosis) which can obstruct the blood vessels and result in stroke or other serious health conditions.
Researchers at the University of Chile identified that the Omega Fatty Acid GLA (a key component of Blackcurrant Seed Oil) was able to lower induced platelets aggregation in both humans and mice by up to 45%!

Dilating Blood Vessels to Improve Circulation and Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, means the heart needs to work harder to pump blood around the body. This condition can cause damage to organs and the body's senses, it has been closely linked to a shortened lifespan.
Fortunately, researchers have found blackcurrant seed oil GLA is able to effectively dilate blood vessels and improve blood circulation. One study (involving 27 borderline hypertensive male volunteers) found that, after only 8 weeks of blackcurrant seed oil supplementation, subjects had a significant reduction in diastolic blood pressure with inhibition to blood pressure cardiovascular reactivity by over 40%!.
