For centuries, women of all ages have depended on the reliability of Evening primrose Oil. Evening primrose oil is extracted from the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis), a wildflower found in North America, Europe and parts of Asia. The plant’s pale yellow flowers open in the evening–hence its common name–and its seeds bear the special fatty oil that is used in healing today.
Evening Primrose Oil contains Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), it's used as a dietary source of essential fatty acids in food. Once processed in the body, GLA, an omega-6 fatty acid, exerts anti-inflammatory and other healing actions.
The remarkably rich stores of GLA in evening primrose oil are what make it so valuable in healing. Specifically, evening primrose oil may help to:
Relieve Premenstrual Syndrome
Evening Primrose Oil could relieve the discomforts of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstruation, endometriosis and fibrocystic breasts. By interfering with the production of inflammatory prostaglandins released during menstruation, the GLA in evening primrose oil can help to lessen menstrual cramps. It may also minimize premenstrual breast tenderness, irritable bowel flare-ups, and carbohydrate cravings, and help to control endometriosis-associated inflammation.
Reduce Menopausal Symptoms
Evening Primrose Oil is ideal for those approaching or undergoing menopause. It increases the levels of PGE1 and helps combat menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, cold sweats, mood swings and vaginal dryness.
Promote Healthy Glowing Skin
Evening Primrose Oil is good for your skin and overall beauty. Taken regularly, this special oil can improve skin smoothness and texture for healthy beautiful skin. It is highly beneficial for dehydrated, aged or oily skin (during puberty and menopause). It also helps to treat acne and rosacea. By working to dilute sebum, a thick oily substance that is oversecreted in some people with acne, the essential fatty acids in evening primrose oil may reduce the risk of pores becoming clogged and lesions developing.
Alleviate Arthritis and Joint Pains
Evening Primrose Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory agent. If you suffer from arthritis, your prostaglandins PGE1 are out of balance. EPO restores this balance, which in turn, significantly lessens pain, stiffness and swollen, tender joints.
