Evening Primrose Oil (1300 mg) x 180 Capsules
Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) has 9-10% gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which can become an essential fatty acid because many humans do not convert Linoleic Acid (LA) to produce GLA in sufficient quantities, especially those over the age of 30. It is important for almost every function of the body.
EPO is the original omega 6 fatty acid supplement derived from the Evening Primrose plant.
Why take EPO Evening Primrose Oil?
This renowned oil, from the seeds of the Evening Primrose plant is the closest to the actual formulation used in the original research studies done on Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Some individuals, therefore, prefer to obtain their GLA from this source versus other sources of GLA.
Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis may benefit from omega 6 fatty acids in preference to omega 3 fatty acids because it is the omega 6 fatty acids that are essential for the skin, and omega 3 fatty acids are not.
GLA may be used in hormone production, fat metabolism, and insulin regulation. These source plants are wild-crafted in Asia and the oil is cold-pressed and hexane free. Standardised to 9% GLA.
