About Evening Primrose Oil 1000mg Vegan
This product combines evening primrose oil with starflower (borage) seed oil to give a blend that is richer in Gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA) than straight evening primrose oil. This product provides approximately 30% more GLA per capsule than similar sized evening primrose capsules.
GLA is the precursor of a particularly important prostaglandin called PGE1, which takes part in regulating the nervous, cardiovascular and reproductive systems, skin condition and other biological functions. Whilst the body can make GLA from linoleic acid (the Omega 6 fatty acid present in vegetable oils) this conversion is sometimes slow or partially blocked. Hence, a dietary source of GLA can be very useful to the body in by-passing the conversion process, and numerous clinical trials have established that GLA supplements can be effective in a number of situations.
This product provides approximately 50% more GLA per capsule than the similar sized evening primrose capsules, and each capsule also provides 83% NRV of vitamin E
This product can be recommended to:
women going through the menopause
women at the time of their period
anyone wishing to keep their skin in good condition
