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.
