Evening primrose oil (EPO) is the oil extracted from the seeds of the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis). The seeds are mechanically pressed to produce the plant oil which is a rich source of omega-6 essential fatty acids. These fatty acids are called Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA) and Linoleic acid (LA).


Evening Primrose Oil has been used for generations.


GLA is not naturally produced by the body so many people may find that they need to source it from their diet or supplements. Other sources include blackcurrant seed oil, borage seed oil, and hemp seed oil. The fatty acid is also found in edible hemp seeds, oats and barley. When we take Linoleic acid into our bodies it is metabolised into GLA, which is essential for the production of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Linoleic acid contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.


Directions:

Adults take one or more softgel capsules a day preferably at mealtimes, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.


Not suitable for individuals taking anti-blood clotting drugs such as Warfarin and Heparin. Not suitable for individuals with epilepsy.


Give your GLA levels a boost with Solgar Evening Primrose Oil 1,300mg Softgels from Holland & Barrett.
