I use it to treat tremors associated with the use of lithium in the treatment of bipolar disorder. GLA has worked for me very well.

After researching studies I take 480mg GLA capsules with 400iu vitamin E nightly. This has greatly reduced discomfort due to neuropathy, especially at night.

I use GLA to treat A-fib. (Atrial fibrillation). I was having episodes several times a month, sometimes several times a week, and going to the emergency room way too often. It took about three weeks of using 1000 mg of GLA a day to see the effect, but I did not have an a-fib episode for over four months. I am down to three episodes in six months! A huge improvement! My friends told me about this.

Have been using GLA (black currant oil, evening primrose oil, or borage oil) for 15 months to treat diabetic neuropathy. Borage has highest GLA content. Works well! I take 4-1300 mg capsules in the a.m. And another two in the afternoon. On occasion I have to take two more in the evening. No adverse effects to report. It stops the pain in my hands and feet and I no longer have continuous cold sensation in them. My only complaints are: its a bit on the pricey side, and, the largest package I can find is 160 capsules which is gone in less than a months time. Read More Read Less

This herb is amazing if you have skin issues. Within three days, the eczema on my ankles and around my elbows have completley gone away. Dermatologist have prescribed me topical treatments which can sooth the scratching, but it never goes away completely.
