Borage (Borago officinalis) also known as Starflower, is a beautiful flowering plant that grows in the wild in the Mediterranean. It is also packed with healthy nutrients that are great for the body. Borage is well known for its soothing qualities and has been used as a natural sedative and for lifting the spirits and softening the nervous edge some people experience.
Borage works well to ease the sadness and mood swings often associated with menopause and menstrual cycles. It is great for women because it contains high levels of calcium and iron, nutrients many women are deficient in. Potassium, Zinc, B and C Vitamins, and beta carotene are packed into the Borage plant making it very nutritional.
