Evening Primrose Oil: Rich Source of GLA
A tall, hearty native biennial, the evening primrose plant is abundant in
many parts of the world. Native Americans first used the plant for upset
stomachs and respiratory infections. They introduced it to European
immigrants, who took it back to England and Germany.
The main medicinal components are extracted
from the seeds in the form of an oil that contains essential fatty acids,
including high amounts of gamma linoleic acid (GLA). GLA is an essential
fatty acid the body uses to produce prostaglandins. Women especially find
primrose oil supplements useful to help prevent menopausal symptoms such
as hot flashes.
Evening primrose oil is also valuable for its
antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help counteract the damage caused by
free radicals in the body.
Our evening primrose oil is of the finest quality and is hexane free. It
is 100 percent-pure, cold-pressed evening primrose oil, derived from the
seeds of the evening primrose plant.
