Blackmores Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg 190caps





A supplement rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linolenic acid (LA) for the relief of PMS symptoms such as bloating, breast tenderness, sugar cravings, cramping, mood swings and irritability. Like vitamins, EFAs cannot be synthesised by the body and are required in relatively large amounts in the diet for prostaglandin production. Evening primrose oil can also assist in the relief of the symptoms of minor skin disorders such as eczema and dry skin.





How it works





Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) contains the essential fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA) and influences prostaglandin activity leading to a reduction of cramping pain and other symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome, including cyclic mastalgia. Lifestyle factors such as excess saturated fats in the diet, ongoing high stress levels, alcohol consumption, and smoking may all affect GLA metabolism, leading to the need for dietary supplementation.





Other uses for EPO include relief of symptoms of psoriasis and atopic eczema.
