What is Evening Primrose Oil 500mg?

  • 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 have suffered with Endometriosis for sixteen years, more recently I found that this product helps, in ways that are not really explainable. Definately a good product for gynaecological support.
