Product Overview

  • 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.

i suffer terribly from hot flushes in the night which result in very little sleep. The daytime ones are not as frequent and do not bother me. Having given up HRT (which keeps them at bay) because of my age and health risk. I need to do something. I am halfway through my first pack taken in conjunction with Soy Isoflavones and have noticed no change whatsoever. Maybe it is early days and I shall continue until I run out then review the situation

I started to use Evening Primrose oil a while ago, as my skin was a bit itchy and it stopped
so I have carrried on using it, easy to swallow capsules.

In the first year of my menopause I took 1500mg of Evening Primrose a day and my hot flushes went completely.
However, now I'm in the second year I take 1000mg together with Menoserene and this combination works for me. I sleep much better too.

I have been taking Evening Primrose oil capsules for 6 months and no longer need Cortisone injections in my shoulders. I am now able to lift my arms high as no pain. Brilliant. I recommended them to 2 friends who have also found they have benefited from using EPO. Well done for this particular product.
