Evening Primrose Oil is an excellent source of the important gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) providing 117 mg of GLA per softgel. This Evening Primrose Oil formulation is 100% pure cold expeller pressed and hexane free. It is derived from the seeds of the evening primrose, a high quality source of gamma-linolenic acid.

Gamma linolenic acid is the precursor to a class compounds known as prostaglandins, specifically prostaglandin E1 (PGE1). Among their functions, prostaglandins regulate and can be either proinflammatory or anti-inflammatory. Gamma linolenic acid favors the formation of the latter, thus supporting healthy immune function.

Body functions that require proper prostaglandin regulation include:

·         monitoring blood pressure and viscocity

·         managing cell growth and division

·         promoting a healthy metabolic rate

·         supporting the immune system and

·         regulating secretion of hormones

 

                  GLA is anti-inflammatory and may promote healthy hormone production

Series 1 prostaglandins help prevent hormones from going into hyper-drive, since they down-regulate the frenetic activity of series 2 prostaglandins. This means that estrogen levels – if estrogen dominant – may be able to come down some, and that insulin and testosterone levels can also be brought back down into check.

Evening Primrose:

·         is thought to reduce PMS symptoms and heavy periods

·         may help blunt insulin resistance

·         can help the body regulate its immune response and sooth gastrointestinal inflammation

·         can boost fertility via calming insulin and testosterone production, and keeping estrogen and progesterone in better balance
