Evening Primrose is a supplement that helps control allergies, improves circulation, stimulates memory and learning, and helps control premenstrual syndrome.
Properties and benefits of Evening Primrose
Evening primrose oil is rich in essential fatty acids (gammalinoleic acid and gammalinolenic acid - GLA), which are necessary for the proper production of prostaglandins (precursors of hormones capable of regulating many functions of the body).
A lack of GLA triggers a series of problems such as dryness and skin irritations, liver abnormalities, alterations in the production of prostaglandins and even growth problems in children. In addition, it has regulatory effects on the levels of estrogen, progesterone, prolactin and prostaglandins, which makes evening primrose oil a great ally in combating pre-menstrual symptoms (fluid retention, irritability, abdominal pain).
GLA is naturally found in the triglycerides that form vegetable oils, in vegetables and in some nuts; however, one of the best sources is the evening primrose seed. The need for an extra supply of evening primrose oil is increasing every day in modern society, where the intake of vegetables and unsaturated oils is decreasing. The usual amount of GLA in evening primrose oil is 9%, but higher qualities are up to 10%.
The incorporation of vitamin E in the formula serves to protect the oil from rancidity, ensuring the good condition of the oil.
