Evening primrose oil is a high-quality oil, rich in omega 6 fatty acids, in particular, GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) which has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Evening Primrose Oil is also a great source of LA (Linoleic Acid), the oil is touted to have benefits beyond being anti-inflammatory including benefits for the skin, hair and bones although more research needs to be done to confirm or refute the numerous claims made for Evening Primrose Oil.

It is thought that European settlers and Native Americans used primrose the wildflower. Now, in more recent times the oil is fairly popular specifically amongst those wanting natural solutions and the health conscious.

Evening Primrose Oil Benefits:

– High concentration of GLA
– Source of linoleic acid
– Linoleic acid contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels (when a daily dose of 10g is consumed)
– Cost effective

The seeds of the flower are harvested and generally cold-pressed to extract the oil which can then be put into bottles, various oil blends and capsules for those who wish to take advantage of the benefits Evening Primrose Oil has to offer.

The body does not naturally produce GLA on its own and therefore it must be consumed through the diet or via supplementation, GLA, however, can be metabolised from LA within the body. GLA is essential for the production of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins.

Evening Primrose Oil is a great source of LA, other sources include safflower, hemp and sunflower oil. GLA is also naturally found in hemp seed oil in addition to human breast milk.

Who Should Consider Evening Primrose Oil?
– Those wanting a high-quality source of linoleic acid and gamma-linoleic acid
– Those wanting a source of omega 6
