Overview
Native to North America, the evening primrose is a tiny and short-lived wildflower and not a true primrose. When Europeans found it and took it to Europe, its purported healing properties for skin diseases and flesh wounds quickly earned it the name "King's cure-all". Evening primrose is now grown in 30 countries or more, and the oil pressed from its seed is marketed as a nutritional supplement and as a great source of linoleic acid. Evening primrose oil, however, is a source not only of linoleic acid but also of another kind of fatty acid called gamo-lenic acid (also known as gamma linolenic acid, or GLA). This fatty acid, normally manufactured by the body from linoleic acid, is important in many ways. It is transformed by the body eventually into eicosanoids, hormone-like chemicals that include the prostaglandins. Prostaglandins help control such processes as inflammation, blood clotting, and cholesterol synthesis.

Our Evening Primrose Oil is cold pressed without the use of solvents such as hexane and is available in 500mg and 1,300mg potencies.
