What is evening primrose oil?

The evening primrose plant was first introduced to Europe in the 17th century and a few years later it was nicknamed the 'king's cure-all'. Although indigenous tribes in North America already were using the plant as a food and medicinal crop for hundreds of years. The oil is obtained from the evening primrose Oenothera biennis L., a wild plant native to northern America that bears no relation to the UK’s native wild primrose. The beautiful evening primrose flower blooms for a single day, but the oil from its seeds helps you bloom year after year. The plant produce an oil rich in the omega 6 fatty acids GLA (gamma linolenic acid) and LA (linoleic acid). For this reason, supplements are popular with thousands of women who use them to support hormonal balance and combat different skin conditions. Although as yet there are no EU proven health claims to support this.

Why choose Healthspan’s Evening Primrose Oil 500mg capsules?

We make our capsules using evening primrose oil extracted only by mechanical compression, without the use of heat or solvents, ensuring an optimum purity and a high content of the beneficial omega 6 fatty acids GLA and LA. We also make our capsules small so are easy for you to swallow. Although some GLA is produced by the body, several studies suggest supplementation has a positive effect. LA is an essential fatty acid which the body cannot produce so we must obtain through diet. You must ensure the right levels of Evening Primrose Oil are taken in order to reap its benefits. Our nutritionists advise 1,000mg per day as a cosmetic supplement, and 2,000mg (four capsules) per day over a period of three to four months as an ideal intake. Up to six capsules daily may be taken before the onset of periods.
