What is Evening Primrose Oil (EPO)?

Evening Primrose's special property is the oil in its seeds which contains Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is an Omega-6 essential fatty acid which must be obtained from our diet. It plays an essential role in the body helping to regulate many body functions such as blood pressure and the reproductive cycle - this happens because GLA is essential in production of certain hormones (prostaglandins).

Why take Evening Primrose Oil?

Evening Primrose Oil is popular for women to be taken around the time of their period or during the menopause. It is also popular with anyone wanting to maintain healthy skin.

Our high-potency 1000mg capsule provides 9% of the free fatty acid content as GLA (80mg) - together with 10mg of antioxidant Vitamin E. As well as being a beneficial antioxidant to the body which protects our cells from oxidative stress, the Vitamin E also protects and stabilises the GLA from oxidative stress which helps it last and remain fresher for longer.

There are two methods of extracting the oil from the Evening Primrose seeds. The first is chemical extraction by using solvents and the second is mechanically by cold pressing the seeds - this is a method similar to the extraction of extra virgin ollive oil.  Our cold pressed evening primrose oil capsules are not subjected to chemical solvent extraction.

Quality assured and tested for guaranteed strength

As with all our products, these Evening Primrose Oil capsules are extensively tested to ensure that the GLA level we claim on the labels is the minimum amount present in the capsule. The levels we quote are guaranteed to be accurate at the end of their best before date and as the GLA levels will slowly drop over time this means when they are manufactured the levels will typically be even higher than our Nutritional Profile guarantees.

Top tip: If you are looking for higher levels of GLA then you should consider Just Vitamins Starflower Oil, as it contains 20% naturally occuring GLA.
