Evening primrose oil is extracted from the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis), a wildflower found in North America, Europe and parts of Asia. The plant's pale yellow flowers open in the evening--hence its common name--and its seeds bear the special fatty oil that is used in healing today. Evening Primrose Oil contains naturally occurring Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA is an Omega-6 fatty acid found in Evening Primrose, Borage and Black Currant seed oils. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid, it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by these dietary sources. Once processed in the body, GLA, an omega-6 fatty acid, exerts anti-inflammatory and other healing actions. Specifically, evening primrose oil may help to: relieve the discomforts of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstruation, endometriosis and fibrocystic breasts, ease the joint pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis, prevent diabetes-associated nerve damage, reduce the symptoms of eczema, help treat acne and rosacea, alleviate inflammation associated with lupus, lessen numbness and tingling, combat damage from multiple sclerosis, protect against the effects of aging, counter impotence and female infertility, and nourish nails, scalp, and hair.*
