Black Current Oil
This oil contains essential fatty acids, which are precursors of prostaglandins, which must be present for functions involved with blood vessels, maintaining arterial pressure already within the normal range, metabolizing dietary cholesterol, activating T-lymphocytes, protecting against platelet aggregation and other functions.
It is also said to be an excellent acne treatment, but I also read that too much of it could cause Arthritis flare-ups.
Black Currant Oil
Black currant seed oil is obtained from seeds of the black currant. Black currant seed oil contains 15 to 20 percent gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Do not confuse with black currant berry.
Liquid and capsules; typical dosage ranges from 360 mg to 3,000 mg daily.
Black currant oil may increase immune response in elderly.
As mentioned in the article, don't confuse it with the the berry. It is oil from the seeds that is used for the remedy. And I will say it again and keep saying it, untill I am blue in the face from repeating it (or maybe it is from the black current berries, because I love them!): consult your health care provider.
Although the fruits are delicious and healthy, it is the ground that is at the foundation of it all. If the soil is no good, the fruit will be no good. We too, need to make sure the foundation we have is ready to receive and grow the seed, so we can yield good fruit as well. :-)
But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."
