LifeSource Nutrition’s Evening Primrose Oil contains naturally occurring Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA). GLA is an Omega-6 fatty acid found in Evening Primrose, Borage, and Black Currant seed oils. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary Linoleic acid, it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by these dietary sources.

Our Evening Primrose is extracted through a natural expeller pressed process without the use of hexane or other chemical solvents. Super Primrose is a more potent, concentrated form of Evening Primrose. Evening Primrose is a good vegetarian source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that imparts important health benefits.

The Evening or Tree Primrose, though originally a native of North America, was imported first into Italy and has been carried all over Europe, being often naturalized on river-banks and other sandy places in Western Europe.

The bark and the leaves are astringent and sedative. They have a proved of use in the treatment of gastro-intestinal disorders of a functional origin, whooping cough and asthma. A syrup made from the flowers is also an effective treatment for whooping cough. The bark is stripped from the flowering stem and dried for later use, the leaves are also harvested and dried at this time.

Evening primrose oil has become a well-known food supplement since the 1980's. Research suggests that the oil is potentially very valuable in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, pre-menstrual tension, hyperactivity etc. It is also taken internally in the treatment of eczema, acne, brittle nails, rheumatoid arthritis and alcohol-related liver damage. Regular consumption of the oil helps to reduce blood cholesterol levels and lower the blood pressure. The seed is a good source of gamma-linolenic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid that assists the production of hormone-like substances. This process is commonly blocked in the body, causing disorders that affect the uterine muscles, nervous system and metabolism.
