What is Evening Primrose Oil/GLA?

Derived from the seed of the evening primrose, a flowering plant grown in North and South America, this botanical oil is an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids: Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), linoleic acid, oleic acid and palmitic acid. These health-promoting omega-6 fatty acids possess soothing properties that have long been used in traditional Native American wellness practices.**

Today, evening primrose oil is most widely regarded for its nutritional support of women’s wellness. Evening primrose oil is commonly used as a comforting remedy for the physical and psychological symptoms of PMS, menstruation and menopause. Scientific investigations have suggested that these women’s wellness benefits may be traced back to evening primrose oil’s essential fatty acids, which modulate whole-body inflammatory responses to soothe away aches, cramps and discomfort. The GLA found in the oil is also a precursor to hormone-like compounds called prostaglandins, which may help to promote a more balanced hormonal state during menopause.**

Evening primrose oil’s inflammation-modulating effects, along with its role in stabilizing cell membranes, also help to support skin health. Research has found that the oil notably reduces skin inflammation, suggesting it may hold potential for helping with scaly, flaking and irritated skin. GLA in particular may also help to keep skin hydrated and supple while supporting the growth of healthy new skin.**

Evening primrose oil's inflammation-modulating properties support flexible joints as well, helping to ease mobility-limiting aches. The GLA found in EPO also holds wide-ranging benefits for cardiovascular wellness, helping to optimize circulation and healthy blood lipid levels.**

Evening primrose oil supplements, which are cold-pressed from the seed of the plant, most often appear in capsule or softgel form. For the best purity and potency, look for hexane-free EPO supplements that do not use solvents.**
