Primrose Oil 500mg - 100 soft gels

What is Primrose Oil and How does it work?


Evening primrose is a wildflower that grows throughout the U.S. It has yellow flowers that bloom in the evening. Although Native Americans used the seeds for food and made poultices from the whole plant to heal bruises, evening primrose oil (EPO) has only recently been used as medicine. European settlers took the root back to England and Germany, where it was eaten as food.

Evening primrose oil is found in the plant's seeds and is high in the essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Essential fatty acids -- such as omega-6, found in EPO, and omega-3, found in fish oil -- are used as building blocks for a number of molecules in the body. Your body needs a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids for good health. In addition to evening primrose oil, GLA is found in borage oil and black currant oil.
Today, EPO is used to relieve PMS symptoms and some arthritis-related conditions. The strongest evidence for EPO is for treating eczema.
  • Evening primrose oil has been used since the 1930s for eczema (a condition in which the skin becomes inflamed, itchy, or scaly because of allergies or other irritation).
  • More recently it has been used for other conditions involving inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Evening primrose oil is used for conditions affecting women's health, such as breast pain associated with the menstrual cycle, menopausal symptoms, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
  • Other conditions for which evening primrose oil is used include cancer and diabetes.
Evening primrose oil is extracted from the seeds of the evening primrose. The oil is usually put into capsules for use.

Evening primrose oil is well tolerated by most people. Mild side effects include gastrointestinal upset and headache.
