Extended Information:

Q  Why do I need Evening Primrose Oil?
A  Evening Primrose Oil provides 10% Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), an essential Omega 6 fatty acid (EFA). EFAs, often missing from the diet, cannot be manufactured in the body and are used for synthesising compounds such as prostaglandins. Many people cannot make enough GLA for optimal health, due to genetic limitation, nutrient deficiency or blockage by other dietary factors. Evening Primrose Oil is an ideal way of obtaining GLA and it is free of blocking agents.

Q  What are prostaglandins?
A  GLA, in Evening Primrose Oil, is converted to Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) in the body. PGE1 is a hormone-like compound which controls many of the body’s essential functions. These include cholesterol levels, acne, eczema, joint health, circulation, menopause, menstrual cramps, diabetes and weight control. PGE1 helps control the production of the inflammatory series 2 Prostaglandin (PGE2) leukotrienes and other highly inflammatory agents, helping to maintain healthy joints and improve mobility.

Q  How does Evening Primrose Oil help my skin?
A  Essential fatty acids are needed for healthy skin and hair. Deficiency in EFAs results in skin lesions, flaking, dandruff, brittle nails and thinning hair. Supplementing the diet with GLA from Evening Primrose Oil has shown excellent results.

Q  Is Evening Primrose Oil helpful for hormonal balance?
A  Yes. Evening Primrose Oil, a natural source of GLA, can relieve about 90 to 95% of women’s pre-menstrual tension, according to British studies. The studies have found that two thirds of women not helped by other treatments improved on Evening Primrose Oil
