This nutrient-packed powerhouse featuring omega-3s from fish and evening primrose oil serves up the essentials you need to support hormonal balance and healthy skin!
Evening primrose oil is the oil extracted from the seeds of the yellow evening primrose wildflower, Oenothera biennis. It is a rich source of linoleic acid and gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), both omega-6 essential fatty acids.
Some of the many benefits and advantages of using evening primrose oil capsules include its ability to soothe the inflammation process, promote good skin health, balance hormones and support healthy cholesterol levels, help regulate blood sugar levels, prevent hair loss and aid in weight management.
One of the well-known benefits of evening primrose oil is in treating skin imbalances like acne that results from hormonal imbalance. The fatty acids in Evening primrose oil can assist with regulating hormones in the body and help moisturise and support dry skin, in the case of eczema or dermatitis. It can also help support healthy hormonal production for a healthy monthly cycle in women. Many women use evening primrose oil (EPO) to manage symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and menopause, such as hot flushes.
Although the role of evening primrose oil in treating hormone-related disorders suggests it may alter the levels of estrogen in your body, as of yet there has not been any clinical study to validate whether or not evening primrose oil can cause high estrogen levels. Through practitioner use, it has been observed instead that it has a modulating and balancing effect on hormones.
If used daily and consistently, you could begin to see results within at least six weeks, sometimes even less. Research shows that taking evening primrose, up to 6 grams per day by mouth for 3-5 months, can help achieve long-term results.
