What is Black Currant Seed Oil?

Black currant seed oil comes from the shiny, black berries of Ribes negrum, a deciduous shrub that is native to Asia, Europe and North America. The tart balck currant berries have long been used to make wines, juices, jams and jellies; in Siberia, the black currant shrub's foliage is used to flavor vodka and other liqueurs. Black currants have long been prized for their therapeutic qualities, as well. For many centuries, Native Americans used black currant berries to promote intestinal, kidney and uterine health, as well as to reduce swelling and inflammation.**

While the berries supply abundant vitamin C and antioxidant, recent health tends have focused on black currant seed oil’s high concentrations of gamma linolenic acid or GLA, an Omega-6 fatty acid, and alpha-linolenic acid, an Omega-3 fatty acid. Research suggests that GLA stimulates the production of the immune-regulating hormone prostaglandin-1 while limiting the body's production of hormones that are tied to inflammation. Prostaglandins are also closely tied to menstruation. Black currant oil's inflammation-modulating and prostaglandin-regulating properties may ease symptoms of PMS while helping with menstrual and menopausal discomfort, including mood issues and breast tenderness.**

With its inflammation-regulating properties, it is a valued supplement for easing skin concerns related to itching, scaling, dryness and flaking. In addition to supporting skin health as an ingestible supplement, black currant seed oil is sometimes applied to skin topically. The GLA in black currant seed oil also supports brain function, promotes healthy immune system function, maintains healthy bones and supports metabolic wellness.**
