What is Evening Primrose Oil?
The oil that is pressed from the seeds of the Evening Primrose plant has long been used to promote good health. Evening primrose oil is a rich source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), an essential omega 6 fatty acid that is believed to support the heart, hormonal balance and the appearance of skin. The body does not produce GLA so sufficient levels need to be consumed through the diet or supplements.
The health benefits of GLA
GLA regulates the body�s production of prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that act as chemical messengers between cells. Experts believe that these prostaglandins help to maintain hormonal balance throughout the month and, for this reason many female customers choose to take these capsules to counter the effects of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). It is also thought that prostaglandins help to regulate blood pressure and maintain healthy blood circulation.
UK Made and GMP Quality Assured
Essential fatty acids are vulnerable to damage from heat and air, and so need to be carefully extracted from the seeds of the flower. To achieve this, an advanced cold-pressing technique is used to extract the oil at low temperatures and protect its delicate structure. This process ensures that each soft-gel capsule contains 100mg of concentrated GLA, making this supplement one of the strongest on the market. Our Evening Primrose Supplement also provides beneficial levels of Vitamin E to preserve the oil.
