Caption: Echium vulgare. Field of cultivated Echium vulgare, commonly known as Viper's bugloss. It is a member of the Borage family and has blue flowers. Echium seed oil contains the essential fatty acids gamma linoleic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA). Both fatty acids are important nutrients as they cannot be manufactured by the human body. The oil is harvested for use in health food supplements and for cosmetic products.
