Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg 90 caps
Evening Primrose Oil contains a substance called Gamma Linolenic Acid. This is an essential fatty acid which the body converts to protaglandins - these are hormone like substances which control many of the bodys functions. In particular they help to regulate the menstrual cycle and hormone regulation, lower high blood pressure and reduce cholesterol levels, they improve the condition of the skin making it smooth and help form a barrier against the loss of moisture.
Essential Fatty Acids also assist in reducing inflammation and improve mobility in the joints, and are involved in many other physiological processes. Many people have inadequate levels of Essential Fatty Acids, due to food processing, glucose intolerance and ageing. This causes problems such as dry skin, eczema, acne, lack of energy and food cravings. Prostaglandins are better produced by combining EPO with other supplements such as Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6.
