Evening Primrose Oil is a dietary supplement formulated to promote women’s health, hormonal balance, female reproductive system, and support mild PMS discomforts. Evening Primrose Oil is available in softgels from Natura-Genics®.
Evening primrose oil comes from the seeds of the evening primrose plant which contains omega-6 fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is known for promoting anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving activity. Evening primrose oil is often recommended for certain skin conditions and overall female well-being.
Benefits of Evening Primrose Oil
• Promotes Hormonal Balance and Overall Women’s Health
Women go through several changes in their bodies from menstrual cycles to menopause. Evening primrose oil may assist in alleviating some of the symptoms associated with these changes and hormonal fluctuations. Gamma-linolenic acid is involved in the production of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. The increase in prostaglandins due to evening primrose oil supplementation may help counter changes associated with menopause. Balanced hormones, happy woman.
• Promotes Female Reproductive Health
Evening primrose oil supports balanced hormones and may help promote regular menstruation, important for a healthy reproductive system and ideal for planning. It may also promote improved quality and quantity of cervical mucus, which makes it easier for sperm to swim to an egg. It is important to note that evening primrose oil should be used with caution and before ovulation.
• Supports Mild PMS Discomforts
Some studies have shown that evening primrose oil may assist in the relief of premenstrual syndrome symptoms such as depression, irritability, and bloating. It is believed that some women who experience PMS may be sensitive to normal prolactin levels in the body. GLA converts to a substance in the body (prostaglandin E1), believed to assist in stopping prolactin from triggering PMS. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, evening primrose oil may also promote reduced breast pain and skin conditions such as acne which are common during menstruation.
