Product Overview

  • Gluten Free
  • 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.

like this product as a middle aged woman I feel the benefit greatly

11 March 2016

Started taking Evening primrose oil on Doctors recommendation in my 30s as I suffered badly with mastitis in my breasts each month. I found they really worked and the pain and discomfort stopped, I no longer have menstruation periods but continue to take the Evening Primrose oil as still find times when I have stopped taking them I still get some discomfort. My skin keeps clear too which I have put down to the health benefits of this supplement. I will be 70 this year
