Evening Primrose Oil

Evening Primrose Oil

Evening primrose is a yellow flowering plant that is native to eastern and central North America and has been used medicinally by indigenous tribes for hundreds of years for its incredible healing benefits.

The oil from evening primrose is a rich source of omega-6 essential fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and is best known for its use in the treatment of diseases caused by chronic inflammation, such as atopic dermatitis and rheumatoid arthritis. When taken orally, evening primrose oil has been shown to improve skin moisture and elasticity, while also reducing overall roughness of the skin.

Along with this, evening primrose oil has also been shown to aid in easing premenstrual syndrome symptoms in women such as digestive issues, irritability, backache, fatigue and breast pain, and is beneficial in easing menopause symptoms.

We have chosen to incorporate Evening Primrose Oil into The Omega due to its pain relieving effects, anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s ability to aid in boosting skin health.
