Lamberts Pure Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg
Size: 90 capsules
Evening Primrose Oil is rich in polyunsaturated Fatty Acids including Linoleic Acid and Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), and is low in saturated Fatty Acids. Linoleic Acid is abundant in many vegetable oils but Evening Primrose Oil is one of the few rich sources of GLA.
The body not only uses polyunsaturates for the growth of cell membranes but it also converts them into Prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are physiologically-active hormone-like substances which control and regulate many body processes. Before the body can make use of Linoleic Acid for Prostaglandin formation, it has to convert it to GLA, and this conversion can be slow, hence a dietary source of GLA is useful to the body.
Evening Primrose Oil is specially selected for its consistent GLA level and is recommended to those:
going through the menopause
at the time of their period
wishing to keep their skin in good condition
1 to 3 capsules daily.
