Product overview

  • Gluten Free
  • Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
  • 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.

I have bought healthspan products for many years and always been very pleased with them, however, I really do not like the new packaging. It is very bulky and takes up a lot of space in the kitchen. I much preferred the plastic containers and especially the little pots they used to come in they were great.

Can't discern any difference for taking it.

Thank you for your review - One of our Product Advisors will be in contact shortly.

you have become too expensive, and you over package your goods.

The only downside to the whole experience was being forced to put a comment in the service box on the feedback survey before I could submit it.
