Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Black Currant Seed Oil GLA (OmegaTru) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Product I like GLA products with its many health benefits. So I decided recently to take Primrose and Black Currant seed oil. One Black Currant in the morning and one Primrose in the evening. I feel good about getting the GLA from different plants. The gel cap is small and easy to take. This product has quality ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective After a suggestion from a friend, I read up on it. When I saw all that is is good for, I started both my husband and myself on it. We had such good results, I recommended it to friends and relatives. They too have been very happy with the results. When my hubby starts to run low, he reminds me to make another order. This is one thing he doesn't want to run out of

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! This product was highly recommended to me by my health professional (alternative I must say). This is to maintain and extend ovaries life! Also helps with hot flashes - reduced to 90%. Best GLA over anything I'd taken so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multiple benefit supplement I like the Black Currant Seed Oil because it helps with hair growth and provides omega 3 and antioxident benefits all in one capsule. I think this is a great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't tell yet To be honest I can't tell a difference yet. I don't know if it's doing what it's supposed to do. I did receive it in a very timely manner. Can't complain about that! I think I need more time to tell if it's working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised My hairdresser told me that some of her customers were having good luck with taking Black Currant for their hair. Since my hair is very thin and fine I ordered these. I take 2 morning and night and she said that my hair is much easier to style now. The big surprise is with my vision. I am able to see better in the dark and my eyes acclimate better going from dark to light. They are a good size, too. I'll definitely be getting them regularly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love Black Currant seed I love Black Currant seed to protect my skin and eyes but I preffer another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Flashes & Bl. Cur. Seed Oil Chiropractor suggested I try (2, 3 x per day) since nothing relieved my hot. flashes. I've been taking Swanson's Bl. Cur. Seed Oil for years & it really HELPS me! * Also, I avoid suger & hot tea, which causes an immed. hot flash for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Skin Be Gone! If you have dry skin, try this twice a day for 3 months. I did, and my skin has been transformed. No longer do I need to take body lotion "baths" after every shower. Try it for 3 months--if it doesn't help you - well give it up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price Purchased this for my husband and brother who suffer from very dry skin in the winter months. Doing a great job for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Eyes In a newsletter from Dr.Blaylock he recommended evening primrose oil and fish oil to relieve dry eyes. Instead of primrose oil I chose black current oil since it also has GLA. Now my eyes feel normal again. I wear contact lens so I'll always use black currant oil for my eye health.
