Evening Primrose oil is unique because it is one
of the few oils that contains abundant amounts of Gamma Linolenic Acid,
an omega-6 essential fatty acid, vital to health. These essential fatty
acids are needed to form important prostaglandins, particularly PGE1,
that maintain and regulate vital body functions.
To fully benefit from Evening Primrose Oil, the body also needs zinc,
magnesium vitamin C, and vitamins B3 and B6, nutrients that are
co-factors needed for the conversion of gamma linolenic acid to PGE1,
the prostaglandin with many health benefits.
Natural Factors Evening Primrose Oil is often used with success by women
experiencing PMS. However, men and women with a wide variety of ailments
- cardiovascular disease, respiratory problems such as asthma,
arthritis, eczema and other skin problems (including teenagers with
acne) - may benefit from EPO. Recent research shows that EPO may also
help children with ADD and ADHD.
Vitamin E is added to enhance long term freshness.
