Product overview

Vegetarian Suitable for Vegetarians

Vegan Suitable for Vegans

Gelatin free 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.

We actually give these to our dog because they help to keep her skin clear of rough spots that make her itch.

Price increases - like other commentors, i'm finding the products i've ordered in the past are become little overpriced perhaps. But do like the range and clarity of whether products suitable for vegans and vegetarians, or not.

Thank you for your review – It’s lovely to hear the product is working for you.

I ordered these two products way back in February 2014, and I have ordered many other things since then. Evening Primrose Oil helps me keep my joints supple, and MultiVitality Gold is my basic Multi-Vitamin Supplement - both taken daily.
The benefits have been proven by surveys throughout the world.
