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.

I had rosecea but have been using EPO for 15 years and not had a recurrence

I have been taking EPO for years as it helps eliminate breast pain. Although I am 62, when I stopped taking it the discomfort returned. I have discussed this with my GP and she is happy for me to continue with it indefinitely.

Product arrived on time and was packaged OK. It would be better if when you ordered more than one product that the postage was reduced. ie not double if ordering two.
