What is Evening Primrose Oil?

Evening Primrose Oil is sourced 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. At Healthspan, it is the mechanical press extraction method that is used.

Why Healthspan's Evening Primrose Oil?

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

Why Should I supplement with Evening Primrose Oil?

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.

Not delivered

Would be axcellent if the parcel arrived every time in full. We've been ordering for years now and on 3 occasions we had damaged or missing parts of the order. This is not Healthspan's fault, but I think has got to do with the origin of the goods that fall under the suspicion of the customs authorities and sometimes don't make it to destination (or damaged/opened). We never had this happening to us in the UK, but since we moved to France (and now Italy) it has happened occasionally. Perhaps something to consider influencing / resolving from Healthspan's side?

Really helps with bone density .

My wife is convinced it helps reduce brittle nails by leaving t off for three months then restarted. I would agree that there was a noticeable improvement. I believe it helps with my dry skin condition, but to a lesser amount.
