The cold pressed Evening Primrose Oil provides 500mg of Evening Primrose Oil per capsule. This yields excellent levels of gamma linoleic acid (GLA) at a minimum of 10%. Evening Primrose Oil is high in fatty acids, including the essential omega-6 linoleic acid and non-essential omega-6 gamma linolenic acid.
- Evening Primrose Oil is high in ‘omega-6’fatty acids including linoleic acid and gamma linolenic acid (GLA)
- Many women choose to supplement with evening primrose oil around the time of their period or during the menopause
- GLA is metabolised in the body to prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that control many body processes
- Although the body can produce GLA directly from linoleic acid, sometimes the conversion is not very efficient
- Fatty acids are as important as vitamins and minerals, but not all can be made in the body, and essential fatty acids have to be supplied in our food or by supplement
