Nature`s Own Evening Primrose Oil is carefully cold pressed and high in gamma linolenic acid.
Evening primrose oil (EPO) is produced from the seeds of the evening primrose (Oenothera) family. The oil is high in fatty acids, including the essential omega-6 Linoleic acid and the non-essential omega-6 gamma linolenic acid (GLA).
GLA is important in supporting the healthy production of prostaglandins, some of which are precursors to oestrogen, which is why many women regularly supplement with evening primrose oil. GLA is also important in the healthy support of other prostaglandins that act in the vascular and immune systems, as well as in muscles.
Taking Nature`s Own Evening Primrose Oil supplies the body with a source of preformed GLA.
