The therapeutic value of evening primrose oil (EPO) 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 maintain normal inflammatory balance. EPO has also been shown to support joint mobility and comfort and promote healthy skin. Each capsule 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.
1 or more soft gel capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
EPO plays a key role in maintaining normal inflammatory balance in various populations, including adults with blood sugar-related nerve complaints and women with hormonal imbalances.
Both in vitro and animal studies, including well-controlled, randomized clinical studies, suggest clinical benefit to EPO in supporting joint health.
In a meta-analysis of placebo-controlled studies on skin health, both patient and doctor scores showed a highly significant improvement in skin dryness, scaling and itching in patients given EPO.
