Product Overview

  • Gluten Free
  • Suitable for Vegans
  • Gelatin Free

Healthspan's Natural Evening Primrose Oil is supplied in a gelatin free capsule. Each Healthspan 500mg capsule provides 50mg of GLA.

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 get the benefits. Our nutritionists advise that 1,000mg per day (two capsules) is sufficient as a cosmetic supplement; but around 2,000mg (four capsules) per day over a period of three to four months is ideal. If you are looking for a higher strength our experts recommend Evening Primrose Oil 1,000mg.

An excellent service although I am starting to notice a reduction in the number of tablets, without a price change, to hide an increase cost.

I have tried Healthspan multivitamins but found they leave an unpleasant after taste.

28 February 2015

I have been using this product for years and will continue to do so. It is the only tablets I ever take on a daily basis and work so well for me. As they do vegan and vegetarian suitable it is fabulous and on the high street they are indeed super expensive. So definitely without a shadow of a doubt value for money. As you can tell a very happy and satisfied customer.

25 February 2015

I bought this one for a friend.

18 February 2015

Would have preferred it to be posted in a mail bag,

16 February 2015

I've still not received my order, I live in Portugal but its still very slow compared with other companies

15 February 2015

Good service. With regard to products, I am disappointed that you offer only 1000mg capsules for some products. They are much too big and not easy to swallow.

11 February 2015

As above
The product is good but please please do not use the foil dispensing system, takes time as I always transfer into your original containers, also I guess it is more expensive for your company.
