As the premiere skincare capsule for Filipinos, Borage Oil helps to keep the skin looking young and radiant due to the Gamma Linolenic Acid or GLA found in the oil which is an Omega-6 fatty acid known for boosting skin health.

What are the precautions before taking Blooming G Borage Oil?

Blooming G is generally safe for 18 yrs old and above. However, if one has any medical conditions which require medications, the person must consult first with his or her doctor before taking any food supplement, including Blooming G.

Blooming G must NOT be taken by a person who is pregnant (unless prescribed by OBGyne during labor for cervical ripening), breast-feeding/ lactating moms; also for persons with bleeding disorder, with liver & kidney diseases, and those who underwent surgery (within 2 weeks of taking- before and after).

It should also NOT be taken simultaneously with any blood thinner (e.g. Aspirin, Warfarin, etc.) as Borage Oil already has natural blood thinning properties.

How to take Blooming G Borage Oil Capsule? 

Blooming G must be taken alongside meals (either dinner or breakfast), once or twice a day.  

Never take Blooming G with an empty stomach. 


Can this cause pimples?

Generally the GLA Omega 6 (main component of Borage Oil in Blooming G) have an anti-inflammatory and moisturizing effect to the skin, which helps manage acne problems.

Some users say they experience pimple breakouts for quite some time of initially taking it, because of the anti-oxidant properties of Borage Oil. After which the Blooming G users say they notice that the acne becomes dry and replaced with smoother skin after a few months of taking it.

However, results vary from person-to-person; and if one is uncomfortable in taking it, then he or she may feel free to stop it anytime. 


Can this be taken with PCOS medication?

There’s no known drug interaction between borage oil and oral contraceptive pills used in PCOS medication. However, it is best for the patient to consult his or her OB Gynecologist before taking the product.


Is Blooming G safe from PA (pyrrolizidine alkaloids)?

Studies show that certain plant-based food products like bulk honey and retail honey contains Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids. This goes the same with Borage Oil.

But Borage Oil Capsules of BAUCHLab (such as Blooming G & Obrage), went through strict production by Capsugel France following its patented Licaps technology. Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids content per batch produced were tested to quantify the amount of PA present, in order to assure the safety of the consumers.

However, if the customer has an existing liver disease - we still recommend NOT taking the product just to take precautions.
