Extracted from the leaves of the Starflower herb, borage oil possesses beneficial fatty-acids. Fiber moves potential carcinogens through the intestines faster, decreasing the contact time between carcinogens and the intestinal wall. (The less exposure to carcinogens, the less chance of developing colon cancer). Besides pushing them through faster, fiber binds carcinogens, keeping them away from the intestinal wall. Fiber also absorbs bile acids, keeping them from acting on bacteria to produce fecapentanes, the cancerous substances that are formed by decaying foods within the colon.
