Evening primrose oil softgels

  • from evening primrose seeds
  • of organic nature
  • source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA)

The evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) is known for its beautiful, yellow flowers and is native to South and North America, but can now be found in many countries.

Source of gamma linolenic acid

Evening primrose oil is a natural source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). This is a polyunsaturated omega 6 fatty acid that is scarce in food. In principle, the body can make GLA itself from (cis) linoleic acid. However, there are situations in where there is an increased need to add a GLA supplement to the diet. Factors that can play a role in this are excessive consumption of trans fatty acids, saturated fats, sugar, alcohol and carbohydrates. Evening primrose oil can be used to support a normal menstrual for skincare from within. It also contributes to the maintenance of a balanced immune response.
