    Black Currant Support for Brain Health

    Black currant, or Ribes nigrum, is a deciduous shrub native to the American Midwest. The oil extracted from its seeds is a potent source of essential fatty acids, such as GLA and ALA.

    Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are important for brain function.

    ALA acid is a plant-based omega-3 that your body can convert to both EPA and DHA, which play a role in reducing internal responses that can cause discomfort and may help support heart health and mood.

    Eating insufficient levels of omega-3 may increase your risk of getting feelings of depression. These essential fatty acids play a role in cell signaling, or communication between cells, and proper signaling is critical for mental health.

    GLA, meanwhile, a polyunsaturated omega-6 plays an important role in normal growth and brain function.

    It also helps stimulate skin and hair growth, manages your metabolism and helps you maintain bone and reproductive health.

    Although your body can produce GLA from other dietary omega-6 fatty acids, it may make better use of such acids when they are supplied directly from dietary sources.

    Suggested Use for Black Currant Oil

    To use as a dietary supplement, adults can take one softgel twice a day with food.
