Additional product info: Blackcurrant oil (1.8 gram of oil, 2 times daily) has been shown effective in decreasing total cholesterol and triglycerides levels and in increasing the serum HDL-C level, especially in mildly hyperlipidemic patients and those with a lower BMI (1). Another study showed that blackcurrant seed oil supplementation (3 grams) increased the proportion of 18:3n6 in triacylglycerols (TAG) and cholesteryl esters (CE), and dihomo-gamma-linolenic (20:3n6) in TAGs, CEs and glycerophospholipids (GPL). Serum levels of LDL cholesterol were also lower in this study after blackcurrant seed oil consumption (2).
