What Is It?
Evening primrose oil (EPO), a source of essential fatty
acids such as gamma linolenic acid (GLA), has been used
in Europe since the seventeenth century and by the Native
Americans for centuries as nutritional support for a wide
range of physiological functions, including joint, skin and
Uses For E.P.O. (evening primrose oil)
Joint Health: In the body, GLA is metabolized to
dihomogammalinolenic acid (DGLA). Several studies
suggest that DGLA promotes healthy prostaglandin E1
(PGE1) production and supports healthy cytokine activity,
a mechanism that may help to support joint comfort.*
Skin Health: Several studies have indicated that EPO may
help support the look and feel of healthy skin. A clinical
trial reported that EPO supported healthy skin through a
modulation of IFN-gamma. Another study revealed that
EPO promoted skin health and led to a more favorable
shift in eicosanoid metabolism.*
Cardiovascular Health: Animal studies suggest that EPO
may support healthy lipid metabolism and may provide
oxidative protection by promoting glutathione reductase
and transferase activities. A clinical trial reported that
GLA in combination with EPA/DHA significantly promoted
healthy cardiovascular function in women.*
Menstrual Comfort: EPO supports GLA levels, which may
potentially be supportive of premenstrual comfort.*
