Description

EPO contains oil from the seeds of the evening primrose (engl: evening primrose), which is characterised by its content of high-quality, unsaturated Omega-6 fatty acids, especially GAMMA-linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid. GLA in the human body is made by linoleic acid and various enzymes.

GLA is involved in the production of hormones, the metabolism and insulin regulation . As a precursor of the hormone-like prostaglandins E1, GLA is responsible for the inhibition of formation of leukotrienes from arachidonic acid.

Evening primrose oil is known for its anti inflammatory properties, as well as by good results in the treatment of diabetes, PMS, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Other uses include disorders of hormonal and enzymatic dysfunctions.

The evening primrose seeds processed for this product comes from wild collected plants in Asia. The oil is obtained by cold pressing and is free of hexane.

Recommended use: 1 softgel once or twice daily with meals.
