Highlights
- Certified Organic cold pressed Evening Primrose Oil with 10% GLA -

Evening Primrose Oil contains a high amount of Omega-6 essential fatty acids including GLA and LA, which are precursor of prostaglandins, particularly PGE1. PGE1 has beneficial effects on cardiovascular system which involves with the maintenance of cholesterol and blood pressure. PGE1 has anti-inflammatory properties and thus making EPO salutary for various inflammations including skin conditions and joint health such as rheumatoid arthritis.
 
EPO has also been studied to be useful for diabetic polyneuropathy, Sjogren’s syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, cyclical mastalgia, reproductive processes, schizophrenia, tardive dyskinesia, ulcerative colitis and Raynaud’s phenomenon.
 
GLA is essential for production of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances, which regulate many important body functions including cholesterol levels, joint health, circulation and skin condition.
 
The organic, cold-pressed EPO used in this product is certified by the USDA National Organic Program and ECOCERT.
 

Within the recommended dosage range EPO is a safe supplement with very few adverse effects reported. Nausea, stomach pain and headache can occur if taken on an empty stomach and diarrhoea may occur at high dosages, indicating the need to reduce intake.

EPO is contraindicated for anyone with epilepsy because GLA increases the body’s prostaglandin levels. Increased levels of prostaglandins lower the threshold for seizures.

Anyone taking blood thinning drugs such as warfarin or aspirin should not take EPO, due to the anti-clotting action of prostaglandins.

If you take any type of medical drug it’s important to consult your health practitioner about possible drug interactions before supplementing with EPO.

Adults - take 1-3 capsules daily with food, or as professionally prescribed.
