The therapeutic value of evening primrose oil comes from its gamma linolenic acid (GLA) content, which has a number of diverse health benefits. GLA, an omega-6 essential fatty acid, has been shown to promote blood circulation, improve fatty acid balance, and support a healthy cycle of inflammation. Evening primrose oil has also been shown to support joint mobility and comfort and promote healthy skin.
Each capsule of this Evening Primrose Oil formulation includes 1,300 mg of cold-pressed, organically grown evening primrose oil and 117 mg of GLA, in a convenient, high-dose soft gel capsule.

Evening Primrose Oil
Evening primrose oil has a high concentration of gamma linolenic acid, which supports the production of prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). Prostaglandins are important cellular messengers with a variety of strong physiologic effects, especially on the cardiovascular and immune systems. PGE1 is known to enhance vasodilation and support healthy blood circulation, promote healthy inflammatory balance and strengthen immune function. By making blood platelets slippery, allowing for better blood flow, PGE1 helps to support arterial and cardiovascular health. PGE1 also helps in modulating cholesterol synthesis and maintaining normal blood pressure levels.
