Solgar Vitamins Evening Primrose Oil 1300mg softgels provide the highest strength of Gamma Linoleic Acid. This natural source of essential omega-6 fatt acids is taken by women seeking a natural solution to hormonal support and recommended by natural practitioners to support healthy nourished skin. The beneficial effects of evening primrose oil (EPO) are generally associated with the omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) content of this oil, which is involved in the production of the hormones, known to support areas of health pertinent to women of childbearing years.
This fatty acid is known to help prevent hardening of the arteries, heart disease, PMS and high blood pressure. Many women find that Primrose and Starflower oil supplements help relieve menopausal symptoms.
The oil used in this product is from the pressed seeds of the primrose plant which is the rich source of omega 6, a fatty acid. There are few foods that contain this important fatty acid and although your body can make it, it is not very efficient so you could benefit from taking a supplement.
