Lonsdale Premium Grade Evening Primrose Oil Supplement
The Evening Primrose is a tall, but elegant plant that only blooms in
the evening hence it's name. The oil in the seeds is rich in essential
fatty acids, particularly Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is used in the
production of hormone like chemicals in the body called prostaglandins.
Prostaglandins are involved in the control of a number of biological
processes including hormone balance.
What does it do?
Evening primrose oil is extracted from the seeds of this native North
American plant and is a concentrated source of the Omega 6 fatty
acid – Gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA). It is the GLA content which makes
evening primrose oil such a useful supplement mainly because GLA is
directly converted into anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. Prostaglandins
are substances produced by the body & there are different types which
either promote or inhibit inflammation. GLA also has other positive
effects because it gets incorporated into the membranes of various cells
in the body.
How can it benefit your health?
Popular applications of evening primrose oil for women include the
relief of eczema, easing pre menstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms such as
breast tenderness and menstrual pain and helping to manage the redness
associated with acne and rosacea.
As we get older, evening primrose oil can be of significant benefit for
a various range of conditions including reduction of diabetic nerve
damage symptoms (like tingling & numbness) and lessening the pain &
swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
Evening primrose oil supplements can also play a part in helping your
look and feel younger.
