  • What Is It?


    Evening primrose oil (EPO), a source of essential fatty
    acids such as gamma linolenic acid (GLA), has been used
    in Europe since the seventeenth century and by the Native
    Americans for centuries as nutritional support for a wide
    range of physiological functions, including joint, skin and
    cardiovascular health.*


    Uses For E.P.O. (evening primrose oil)


    Joint Health: In the body, GLA is metabolized to
    dihomogammalinolenic acid (DGLA). Several studies
    suggest that DGLA promotes healthy prostaglandin E1
    (PGE1) production and supports healthy cytokine activity,
    a mechanism that may help to support joint comfort.*


    Skin Health: Several studies have indicated that EPO may
    help support the look and feel of healthy skin. A clinical
    trial reported that EPO supported healthy skin through a
    modulation of IFN-gamma. Another study revealed that
    EPO promoted skin health and led to a more favorable
    shift in eicosanoid metabolism.*


    Cardiovascular Health: Animal studies suggest that EPO
    may support healthy lipid metabolism and may provide
    oxidative protection by promoting glutathione reductase
    and transferase activities. A clinical trial reported that
    GLA in combination with EPA/DHA significantly promoted
    healthy cardiovascular function in women.*


    Menstrual Comfort: EPO supports GLA levels, which may
    potentially be supportive of premenstrual comfort.*
