Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg Capsules provide a vegan friendly rich source of gamma-linolenic acid – also known as GLA. GLA is one of the few Omega-6 oils with an anti-inflammatory action similar to that of omega 3.
Evening primrose oil (EPO) is obtained from the seeds of evening primrose plant. It contains a special fatty acid called gamma linolenic acid (GLA).GLA is metabolised in the body to form hormone-like substances knows as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are found in all body tissue and help support the normal and healthy inflammatory response, blood clotting, hormone balance and immune system function.
Although your body can make small amounts of GLA this can be affected by factors such as raging, smoking, pollution and nutritional deficiencies. Supplementing daily with Evening Primrose Oil provides a regular source of essential GLA.
