Product overview

Vegetarian Suitable for Vegetarians

Vegan Suitable for Vegans

Gelatin free Gelatin Free

Our high strength natural Evening Primrose Oil contains the essential fatty acid GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). Each Healthspan 1,000mg capsule contains 100mg of GLA and is supplied in a gelatin free capsule.

Evening Primrose Oil is obtained from the seeds of the Evening Primrose plant, a wild plant from North America, which bears no relation to our native wild primrose. There are two main types of Evening Primrose Oil; one is extracted using chemical solvents, whilst the other is extracted by mechanically pressing the oil from the seeds. This is the extraction method used by Healthspan.

Many people don't benefit sufficiently from Evening Primrose Oil because they don't take enough to reap the benefits. Our nutritionists advise that 1,000mg per day is sufficient as a cosmetic supplement; around 2,000mg (two capsules) per day over a period of three to four months is ideal.

I ordered these capsules because they were gelatin free. I couldn't find any in Perth or Australia, so a huge thank you as I can now take evening primrose oil in a cap! It has many health benefits. I am a lacto vegetarian, primrose oil helps me to attain omega-6 essential fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid and helps with the symptoms of PMS.

As a very longserving customer and only reorder as stock runs out I feel that you could allow a more generous discount. I am not too keen on the new packaging but as I am nearly 92 I suppose I will adapt eventually.

Run out the other week and really felt the difference without them

Following a post on the internet regarding how Evening Primrose Oil helped a sufferer with neuropathy through diabetes type 2 I decided to try it. It does help but you have to take very large doses which become rather expensive.

30 June 2014

Helps prevent thinning hair. Keeps skin supple and youthful. Contains GLA. Hormone balance.

30 June 2014

I take these for chronic and often acute eczema. When NICE removed them from prescription I found Healthspan to be the best supplier. However, I really don't like the new packaging - I understand that it's more hygienic but I can't cut a few capsules off the sheet for days away and holidays so perhaps a different design would solve the problem. This applies to the other goods I order too.

30 June 2014

I have taken this product for years and feel it keeps me balanced.

30 June 2014

I suffered with PMT and dry flaky skin. both have gone now since I have been taking it. However , I wish the pkt had not been changed.

If I could choose only one supplement Healthspan Vegetarian Evening Primrose Oil would be my choice. I suffered with a lot of breast pain so took it in high doses initially. The pain subsided once the EPO was in my system after a few weeks. I now take one tablet a day and have no pain whatsoever.

Thank you for your review.

17 June 2014

I have a chronic skin condition and find that Evening Primrose Oil helps me maintain a daily level of comfort. The product itself is excellent but I really dislike the new packaging (hence the lower rating). The loose capsules were much better than the new "blister pack", in which the capsules are set in a large card in such a way that you cannot even cut the card down to a more manageable size. I would much prefer a return to the compact flat tub iwth loose capsules.

Thank you for your review - We're sorry you're not a fan of our letterbox-friendly blister packs - we had a lot of negative feedback about our tubs and have moved our whole range over to foil-sealed blister packs to ensure uncontaminated, fresh tablets right through the pack.
