Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! October 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Health Aid I try to help my husband and I with natural ways to keep us healthy. This has been extremely helpful in keeping our immune systems in good working order. September 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Great source of GLA. I have not found a better price on Black Currant Seed oil anywhere. I only wish it came in bigger bottles! May 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Can't tell the difference Can't say much about this product. March 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 8, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. February 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by menopause This is only product I've found that relieves the hot flashes and mood swings, and I've tried them all. I can't live without it! December 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by good gla supplement this is a good gla supplement, easy to take and a good value. March 29, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love Black Currant seed I love Black Currant seed to protect my skin and eyes but I preffer another brand. May 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 10, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! April 18, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 10, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 30, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Happy with this product I am very pleased with this product and like the high GLA contents...it's like butter to the nerves in my feet...and no smell. This product is on my favs. November 28, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product, good price Black current seed oil is recommended for hair health. Swanson has a good price for a good product. October 20, 2007
