Additional Information
Evening primrose oil (EPO) is unique as it is one of the few oils which contain high amounts of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), an omega-6 essential fatty acid, vital to health. GLA is needed by our body to produce important prostaglandins, particularly PGE1, which helps regulate vital body function including hormonal balance.

Low levels of GLA have been found in women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). EPO being a direct source of GLA may help reduce symptoms of PMS including mood swings, painful menstruation and breast tenderness. EPO has also been used to treat skin problems such as atopic eczema and psoriasis. Significant reduction in inflammation and itching has been reported in eczema patients taking EPO supplements. EPO also exhibits anti-inflammatory effect on swollen and painful joint associated with arthritis.

Nutriforte Evening Primrose Oil is standardized to contain 10% of GLA, so you can be rest assured that you are getting consistent amount of GLA in every capsule. In addition, every batch of evening primrose oil active raw material is tested for peroxide level to ensure freshness of the Omega-6 oils.
