Evening Primrose Oil

Evening primrose oil is the oil from the seed of the evening primrose plant and is mainly used for skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), breast pain, endometriosis, and symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes.

Evening Primrose Oil contains essential fatty acids and has very high levels of "gamma-linolenic acid" (GLA), also known as "omega-6". The oil contains up to 15% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and 70% linolenic acid, which your body turns into GLA. The body eventually converts GLA into prostaglandins - hormones necessary for a number of important functions.
