What is Evening Primrose Oil used for?
Evening primrose oil is an excellent source of fatty acids such as omega 6 fatty acids help in the efficient reduction of inflammation.
Sourced from the seeds of the Evening Primrose Plant, Evening Primrose Oil contains the fatty acids Linoleic Acid (LA) and Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA). The body does not naturally produce GLA so required amounts must be consumed through the diet or supplements. GLA is metabolised from LA within the body and is essential for the production of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins.
Sources of LA include safflower, hemp and sunflower oils ,whilst GLA is naturally found in hemp seed oil and human breast milk. Vitamin B6 contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity.
How does Evening Primrose Oil work?
Evening primrose oil is rich in fatty acid known as gamma linolenic acid that is converted to prostaglandin E1 when taken. Prostaglandin E1 is basically responsible for the contraction of blood vessels.
Evening primrose oil is used to efficiently convert dietary fats into GLA.
GLA regulates the body’s production of prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that act as chemical messengers between cells. Experts believe that these prostaglandins help to maintain hormonal balance and, for this reason many female customers choose to take these capsules to counter the effects of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). It is also thought that prostaglandins help to regulate blood pressure and maintain healthy blood circulation.
