Why use Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg capsules?

Some herbs have a lot of history behind them. Take Evening Primrose, for example. Native Americans used this versatile yellow-flowered herb for food and medicine for centuries before Europeans discovered it. Today, we use the cold-pressed oil from its seeds for conditions ranging from PMT and menopause symptoms through to dry, flaky skin, eczema, psoriasis and asthma.

Healtheries Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg capsules provide high-strength Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) in an easy-to-swallow capsule. It’s the convenient way to discover the benefits of Evening Primrose Oil for yourself.

Recommended For

  • Balancing your hormones if you’re experiencing PMT or period problems, or going through menopause
  • Helping to soothe tender, lumpy, or painful breasts
  • Nourishing dry or flaky skin, hair and nails; and helping to reduce symptoms of eczema or psoriasis
  • Soothing the symptoms of asthma
  • Helping to relieve joint inflammation
  • Assisting your body to naturally heal wounds
  • Providing nutritional support if you’re prone to leaky gut syndrome or food intolerances
  • Supporting your immunity against common longer-term viral infections, e.g. Chronic Fatigue


AdultsTake 1-3 capsules daily with food, or as directed by your healthcare professional.


  • If you’re taking prescription medication, consult your healthcare practitioner before you use this product. 
  • Do not combine with blood thinning medication without seeking advice.
  • If you take Evening Primrose Oil long-term, you will probably notice more benefits if you also take an Omega 3 Fish oil. This helps to ensure you are getting the right balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6 essential fatty acids.
  • If pregnant or breastfeeding consult your healthcare professional.
  • Keep this product out of reach of children

Evening Primrose Oil
Evening Primrose seeds are very rich in an important Omega 6 fatty acid called Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Cold-pressing the oil helps to preserve this essential fatty acid.
Your body uses GLA to produce a compound called “prostaglandin E” (PGE1). This compound is responsible for Evening Primrose Oil’s benefits on hormonal balance, breast health, skin health and inflamed respiratory airways and joints.
Your body can create GLA from other fatty acids, but several diet and lifestyle factors can block your ability to produce it. These factors include high levels of saturated or trans fats, low levels of some nutrients, alcohol, aging, and radiation or viral infections.

Great for Hormones Review by

I used to get really painful swelling while ovulating. Went for numerous tests and the doctors said there was nothing wrong. Mum suggested I try evening primrose and haven't had any pain since then!

Awesome!!! highly recommended. Review by

I have started buying online products from Healthpost in the last 9months. This product is worth the time writing a review, as I want to share with others and hopefully help them to get healthier. My daughter and I are taking the capsules and its almost finished, ordering new one now for us and for my sister who lives overseas. I never felt smooth and painless period in my entire life, it definitely improved my hormonal balance. I like also that the capsules are in soft gel making it easy to take.

Lovely! Review by

I love the reviews on health post. I never would have thought to pierce a capsule and try it on my face, but I'm so glad I did. I've got the most sensitive combination skin ever, so it's a real balancing act to find products that don't upset the sensitivity, or cause dryness or breakouts. I use it every night, it leaves quite a greasy film so I massage it in for 2 mins, including under my eyes - it's amazing, my skin is so hydrated and soft when I wake up. Love it. I'm also taking it orally too but too soon to tell the effects.

Holy Grail product for me! Review by
  • star

This is an absolute 'can't live without' product for me!

I've been taking EPO alongside DIM and Milk Thistle Extract to help with my hormones, skin and PMS woes. I take four tablets at night and also use a capsule every morning and night as my face mosuturizer. It's the only product I have used on my face that prevents me from breaking out AND keeps my skin incredibly moisturised and wrinkle-free at the same time, unlike your typical, drying acne skincare products. I have noticed a big improvement on the tone and texture of my skin and a significant reduction in breakouts and acne scarring. I just pierce the capsules with a pin or pen or anything sharp I can find! Occasionally I also use it as a serum for my hair or as a body mosuturizer.

I've also been taking this alongside DIM to help with PMS and will credit both supplements to changing my life in terms of regulating my hormones. My PMS is much less severe and shorter than it was (it seemed to last forever before I starting taking these supplements with extreme mood swings, bloating and breakouts). I used to get my period every three weeks and now get it every 26 days which is a godsend.

I love how affordable this product is as it enables me to burn through at least six capsules a day (orally and topically). I have absolutely no plans to come off it any time soon and highly recommend this supplement as a skincare alternative and if you feel you struggle with hormonal balance like I do!

This is such a staple in my vitamins and supplements! Review by

I suffer from PCOS, eczema, and really bad acne.. I feel like this helps me maintain a lot of these issues. Maybe if i up my dosage it would help me get rid of my eczema.

I classify this as a basic necessity for my health and future well being. Review by

As a middle aged woman who's led a busy and demanding life, I feel the least I can do for my body is to look after it over the coming years. I classify Evening Primrose as a basic necessity for my health and future well being. This product delivers all the daily requirements that I deem essential to maintain my personal health and wellbeing into the future. I recommend this product to all women.

During my last period (a week ago) I bought these in desperation. I took two capsules with lunch and my flow went from heavy to light within a couple of hours! I take four a day and have seen less breakouts and skin becoming brighter plus a bruise healing much faster than usual. I feel happier snc sm sleeping better too. This is all in a week! I have just changed to the Efamol EPO however to see if I get better results with my acne but this product is very good.
