What is Evening Primrose Oil?
This wild flower is native to North America and called evening primrose because its light yellow flowers open up at dusk. The use of it's oil which contains Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), is relatively recent. GLA is an essential fatty acid that the body converts to hormone like compounds called prostaglandins, which regulate a number of bodily functions.

The body produces several types of prostaglandins - some promote inflammation, others reduce inflammation. The GLA in Evening Primrose Oil is directly converted to important anti-inflammatory prostaglandins, which accounts for most of it’s therapeutic effects. In addition, GLA is an important component of cell membranes.
