Blackmores Evening Primrose Oil, a high-potency source of omega-6 fatty acids, provides a rich natural source of the omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Low levels of GLA have been found in adults and children with skin irritations, as well as women with premenstrual syndrome.
Evening primrose oil is a source of the omega-6 fatty acids gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid (LA). Omega-6 fatty acids and substances made from them, are components of nerve cells, all cell membranes and hormone-like substances known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins have multiple local hormone-like actions, which include regulation of tissue inflammation. Conditions that involve inflammation, such as eczema, may benefit from supplementation with omega-6 fatty acids.
Low levels of GLA have been found in women with premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Essential fatty acid deficiency can lead to an excess of the female hormone prolactin which is responsible for many of the symptoms of PMS. Supplementing with evening primrose oil increases a prostaglandin known as PGE1, which may help with the symptoms of PMS.
