Product Information

Starflower Oil is the oil extracted from borage seeds which has been found to have a naturally high level of the precious compound called GLA. This is an Omega 6 fatty acid which is used by the body to make certain hormones. In theory our bodies can make GLA but research on evening primrose oil has shown that supplements of GLA can be helpful for some people, and now many women choose a GLA supplement around the time of their period.

Starflower Oil is a very concentrated source of GLA which means that each capsule can deliver more than twice the level of GLA than the equivalent sized evening primrose capsule.

Each vegetarian capsules provide a massive 220mg of GLA per capsule, making this an impressive, high potency one-a-day product.

"So far I’m disappointed "

I started taking starflower oil to help with my awful mood swings and night sweats which I believe are both brought on by the peri menopause. My doctor had given me H*T patches but I didn’t feel comfortable in using them due to the bad press H*T has had in recent years.
I read dozens of reviews of starflower oil and began taking them religiously about 6 weeks ago. So far I haven’t seen or felt any change at all and I wonder what I am doing wrong as everyone else calls this a wonder supplement within a few days.
I know you are going to tell me it can take 3 months to start working but surely I should feel something by now?

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

I am sorry to hear that you have not found Starflower Oil helpful. This provides the omega 6 fatty acid GLA (Gamma-Linoleic Acid). GLA is thought to have an effect on prolactin in the body, which may help to reduce breast tenderness and pain. Although there is some suggestion that this may help with other menopausal symptoms, the evidence is a little thin on the ground.

I would suggest Premtis (code 719), which is a two-a-day preparation formulated for women. Whilst it has been formulated for women of menstrual age, many of the symptoms experienced by peri-menopausal women are similar to PMS symptoms and this supplement may still be useful. It provides an excellent level of magnesium; 250mg per two tablets and this mineral can contribute to normal muscle function (which may be useful for painful menstrual cramps) and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. This multi also has a very good level of Vitamin B6, which can contribute to the regulation of hormone activity. Chromium is also present at 200mcg and this mineral is known to be involved in maintaining healthy blood glucose levels, which may help to reduce cravings, especially for sweet foods.

The most common symptoms of the menopause are hot flushes and night sweats and there are a number of different supplements which may be helpful for them. I would suggest Soya Isoflavones 50mg (code 136) as a good initial supplement to take. They are phyto-oestrogens, which mimic the action of oestrogen and are often used to reduce the incidence of hot flushes and night sweats. I would suggest one tablet daily as 50mg is considered to be a sufficient dose for these symptoms, although it can be increased to two a day if necessary or if you have concerns about your bone health.
