Evening Primrose Oil (EPO) is extracted from the seeds of Oenothera biennis, which is a part of the willow herb family. It has been use by Native Americans for its plethora of therapeutic effects. Modern science has discovered that many of these benefits appear connected to the concentration of GLA found in evening primrose oil.
GLA, a long chain fatty acid, is converted into a number of prostaglandins that influence numerous biological functions, including blood coagulation, hormone production, inflammation, skin moisture, cholesterol levels and more. In clinical studies, GLA has shown benefits for cardiovascular health, arthritis, skin disorder, and premenstrual syndrome.
