Diabetes and chronic dry skin, unfortunately, seem to go hand-in-hand. In fact, it is estimated that 83% of all diabetics suffer from dry skin, particularly in the lower extremities. Why is this?

According to well-documented clinical research, diabetics may suffer from an impaired ability to manufacture gamma-linlenic acid (GLA), an OMEGA-6 fatty acid crucial in the development of healthy skin cells. Used for a number of key functions through-out the body, GLA is a building block in the formation of cell membranes are unable to retain adequate moisture levels, resulting in dry skin. Hence, the link between diabetics (many of whom suffer from GLA deficiency) and dry skin.

Borage oil is the richest known source of GLA (24%). This oil is extracted from the seeds of the borage plant (borago officanalis), a wildflower commonly known as the blue starflower and used for thousands of years for its medicinal qualities. Because of its exceptional concentration of GLA, borage oil is used as the fundamental ingredient in all DiabeticCare™ formulations.
